What our experts think
It’s great to see an app that gets children playing together – particularly at this age, learning social skills (like talking to each other, and winning or losing) are really important. The game is quite challenging, as the pictures children are matching are actually upside down. This helps them learn to mentally rotate, compare and match pictures.
Children can also use enchantments to make the game easier for themselves or more difficult for their opponent. This helps them learn to use strategy in order to win.
It would be even better if...
Younger children didn’t understand that they needed to share the screen, and tap only on their half of the screen, so they might need help to get started.
In the Magic School we found that there was a lot of information given to children at once, so they didn’t seem to take it all in.
We also thought it was a bit strange that some of the enchantments cover up the Nogs that the casting player is trying to match with – so it actually makes it more difficult for them as well!
