Curious George: Downtown Adventure, Reading and Phonics
20 September 2012
Excerpt: In Downtown Adventure, Curious George promotes reading readiness for kids aged 3 to 6, as they solve puzzles and earn rewards to build contraptions that will get George out of an assortment of predicaments. In Reading and Phonics, kids learn to recognize letters, sounds, and words as they help George recover pieces of an important note that have been scattered by wind.
Excerpt: Curious George is a popular character from a series of children’s books, and as a movie was released earlier this year the enduring chimp must still be going strong. There’s nothing to be curious about this gaming adaptation though, as it’s basically a run-of-the-mill platformer, albeit one that will please its audience and one with bags of personality.
