Eight challenging games stretch your child's smarts. Twelve printable activities extend the fun and learning beyond the computer. Three levels of difficulty offer ongoing challenge and lasting appeal, while kid-friendly "help movies" guide kids out of a jam fast. StarFlyers: Alien Space Chase also builds essential skills in logic and reasoning, problem solving, hypothesis testing, spatial relationships, sequencing, and more. Loads of kid-friendly charm make this intergalactic adventure your child's ticket to a universe of learning.
Getting from one planet to another requires navigating the spaceship through the Popcorn Galaxy avoiding space food junk and finding caramel power ups. The levels are Tough, Tougher and Toughest, and is just another example of the care and sensitivity that the designers used in putting together this game. As in all of The Learning Company's games there is self leveling and it is set to on but can be turned off. Self leveling keeps track of the players progress and adjusts it according to the performance, so that if you ace a game, the next one will be tougher.
The current format in games now-a-days is to put the manual on the disk. Do yourself or you kids a favor and read it. The how's and why's and what is good stuff and what is stuff to be avoided and what is to point of it all - is not always obvious - so read the manual. The upper age range for this game is eight, but it is unusual and clever enough to please older kids besides being delicious.
