The ubiquity of modern day technology certainly epitomizes the double-edged sword. While we can now do things faster and more efficiently than ever before, we also become half immersed in the real word, and half immersed in our digital realm quite frequently. How can we use technology effectively, and truly leverage the best that it has to offer? Well, in one word, education. Education apps can achieve this balance like no other, allowing us to challenge ourselves, while still enjoying the gratifying engagement of our iPhone or iPad.
Titles like Valentine’s Lipa Knight offer a balanced synthesis between adventure and education, utilizing game development in a holistic and progressive way. Journey through this app with your beloved child or grandchild and watch as they’re whisked away into a world of whimsy and challenging puzzle action.
The game itself is somewhat of a traditional puzzle game, but adapted into a narrative fantasy to engage a younger demographic. The app weighs in at just over 75 MB, and starts up in a breeze. You’ll then see the template of the app, which displays a soft array of cartoons and colors, letting you navigate level by level. The game is constructed for users over 5 years old, but the most accurate range is probably between 5 and 10 to get the most out of the app.
The puzzles required to move from one level to the next require some careful spatial equations, and will definitely begin to test the gamer as they progress. Lipa Knight Valentine’s as a whole boasts 20 levels over 4 settings, various achievements and animations, and no in app advertisements. The app is continuously fine-tuned, and offers up a whole lot of fun for younger users.
