What our experts think
The Screwball Scramble proved to be a lot trickier than our testers first thought! They loved the concept and couldn’t wait to give it a go, but it took a lot of patience and perseverance to complete the obstacles. Getting through each obstacle requires trial and error, developing logical thinking skills.
Our testers found that the timer put them off, so it might be better to use this as an extra challenge once children have mastered the course. There were also some obstacles our testers weren’t able to get through, but it was good that they could simply move the ball onto the next part to carry on. We like that the game can be played with up to three friends, giving it the potential to support team working skills.
