このアプリ、ほんと子供大好きなんですよね。

ゲーム性があるわけではなく、ゲームの世界で好き勝手に建物の中に配置してあるモノを動かしたりするだけなのですが、なぜか子供は大好きで飽きずにずっとやっています。

子供心をわしづかみにする不思議なアプリです。

このトッカボッカはシリーズが沢山あって、どれも楽しいのですが、子供が別のも欲しいと言い始めます。ねだられるたびに購入すると高くつくので、割引のあるApp バンドルを購入しています。

5個で1600円=1個 320円

9個で2300円=1個 250円

探検するモニュメントは、ミニマリストの3Dデザイン、目の錯覚、世界の宮殿や寺院などから影響を受けており、それぞれユニークで手作りの世界になっています。

このアプリも子供が大好きなのです。ちょっと難しいんじゃないの?と思ったのですが、子供があーでもないこーでもないとずっと集中してやってるんです。下手な鉄砲かずうちゃ当たるじゃないですが、クリアできると喜んで次のステージに進むという。

アニメーションやサウンドも洗練されており、ストーリー仕立てになっているので子供が興味をもって取り組んでくれます。漢字で出てくるメッセージにも興味をもって『コレなんて書いてあるの?』と聞いてくれます。それだけでもうれしいです。

これは買いだと思って、1と2のどちらを買おうか迷ったんです。まとめて買うと840円とか出てたので即買いでした。

ABOUT CRAZY GEARS
Explore a captivating digital playground in this tantalizing puzzle game! Children manipulate gears, chains, rods, and pulleys, to pull themselves through each level, which teaches them how different mechanisms affect one another when constructing a machine. Each reasoning challenge was carefully designed to adhere to the theories of educational technology pioneer, mathematician, computer scientist, and designer of the first programming language for children, Seymour Papert.

“The best use of games is to leverage their tendency to enhance learning”- Papert
Recommended Ages 5-9

As a child, Papert fell in love with gears. Their movement fascinated him in every way and inspired his career. Crazy Gears was conceived not only as a tribute to him, but with the hope of providing a child with the inspiration to discover and understand the physical properties of mechanisms found in their everyday lives. Such complex notions include tension, motion, and gravity. We achieve this by encouraging the child to manipulate the objects in each level to determine how they work together to accomplish a goal. Interactions with technology give kids the power to construct their understanding of STEM/STEAM subjects in meaningful ways. Here we engage them in play that does just that!

FEATURES
• No rules
• No explicit instructions
• Kid-Friendly​ Design
• Powerful Artificial Intelligence
• Seamless Interaction
• Multiple Language Support
• Crash Resistant Design
• Bold, bright colors
• Automatic Memory
• Special mode for children with CVI

このアプリはやばいですね。手続き型プログラムと関数化の考え方を遊びながら自然と学べるようになっています。Museonでやったときはよくできとるなーと思ったのですが、家に帰って調べたらなんと無料。

有名どころではMonument Valley1/2は鉄板でしょうし、トッカボッカも子供は飽きずにずっとやっています。

個人的にはLightbotをやったときについに時代はここまで来たか、とちょっと感慨深いものがありました。
