Summary: Wii has now taken over the main function of the TV. Im fine with that, my kids love playing with the Wii game console. I made it a point to look for science, educational, active type games. Science Papa deliver on all accounts. Great way to be introduced to some science experiments. Wish some of the graphics would be better done in Science Papa 2 (whenever that comes out).
Summary: thank you for having this and being able to buy it, you were so fast on delievery, and that my son has played it for two day, over this weekend and BEAT the who game. I could not believe it...but i also bought some cheat codes on amazon but they were not like a books worth so i was surprised he beat it. he loves games that are chanl. and he will play it over and over..
Summary: This is a game which is somewhat similar to Cooking Mama. The premise is you are a lab assistant climbing the ranks to become a top scientist. You have to make these experiments following a "recipe" of sorts, and along the way you are challenged by other scientists and you compete head to head to make these experiments. The experiments are loosely based on reality but in no way will you learn science by playing this game.
Summary: The concept is fun - create science products by mixing, heating, baking, etc to earn points, levels, and new "recipes," but it's just REALLY monotonous - you do the same things over and over and over again. There's nothing to make it challenging or exciting or funny. I was really hoping when I bought it that it'd be more like Cooking Mama, but it really falls flat. Wait until this one goes into the $9.99 bin at the store.
Summary: This is a great concept but my son became frustrated by the fact that it is timed. I am hoping that he will return to the game because a love of science is key to keeping all career choices available in the future.
Summary: I have this game and I love it. I think this game is geared more for older children rather then younger children. My daughter is 6yrs old and still likes it even though its hard for her right now, but I like the fact it is actually helping her get faster at the game. It does frustrate her when she doesn't finish in time, however, its a challenge she is gladly taking on. With enough persistance, she eventually pass it.
Summary: I purchased science papa because I liked the idea of a game designed to give my daughter a chance to learn some science experiments. Unfortunately all the experiments are timed and if you don't beat the time they set for you you can not go on to the next experiment. This feature really is ridiculous becuase all the experemnts so far involve baking in an oven and this takes up a big part of the time.
Summary: ...incase the game saved my progress and I ruined it for the kids. The first exercise was making Brine - water and salt, and you get the wii remote and measure it in and stir it, etc, etc. Being an adult it was all painfully slow moving, but I'm sure a child would enjoy it. Mine haven't even played it yet, but they don't play the wii much anyway except Mario Kart.
