this sort of game is why i bought the leapster in the first place! the graphics are amazing ~ rather realistic & not cartoony. you start off picking a habitat (woodlands, rainforest, ocean, grasslands, or artic) & then have to 'win' 5 animals to fill it up by playing the 4 different games (maze munch - negotiate a maze to get food for your animal; feature finder - classify & sort animals by physical features; matchomatic - match the animal with it's feature (eyes, skin, food, etc); scratch & see - figure out which animal is hiding by scratching off as little of it's cover as possible) after you've gotten enough points, you take a quiz on that particular animal & then get to see it in it's habitat. also, "animal alert" happens periodically where an animal is in the wrong habitat & you have to find it. i wish there was more consistency in the animals (i.e. games for grassland animals focussed on animals that actually live in the grasslands) & maybe a bit more flexible formula but all in all a =great= game that's very educational & not patronizing. also, excellant integration of using both the stylus & arrow keys. like all leapster titles there are different levels of play.
~*~without a doubt our absolute favorite title thus far & i really hope they make more like these!~*~
I will say that the Maze Munch game can be a bit difficult at the higher levels. Sometimes, I can barely escape the Grouper in the Clownfish maze munch! Might be that our arrow botton on the Leapster is a little touchy. It can be hard to get away from that grouper to hide in the sea anemone! The boys get frustrated by it, and want help from me. But maybe it's good to show them that I can't do it either!
I would say this is their favorite Leapster game, and it has been for awhile. They also enjoy Kindergarten, Letters on the Loose, and Numbers on the Run.
She was hoping if she "filled the world" she would get new animals to learn about. I tried to warn her that she probably wouldn't, but she just played and played until the world was filled. Unfortunately, she got to start all over. But honestly, she still loves it. She is constantly quoting me animal facts!
I just wish there were more similar games by Leapster. Maybe an Animal Genius II? I know my daughter would love it!
Great game, highly recommend for any kid who has an interest in animals.
