Looking for a fun game to play with the whole family? I’ll review a new game from Osmo and briefly cover some tech news in this week’s episode of The Wired Homeschool.
Osmo Hot Wheels™ MindRacers Review
Although Osmo makes a number of fun, creative, & educational games your kids will love to play sometimes they just want to have fun. Osmo Hot Wheels™ MindRacers is great for a game night with their siblings and you!
If you grew up playing with Hot Wheels™, you imagined racing them through fantastic worlds. Now, you and your kids can race through amazing worlds while interacting your cars on-screen.
In some stages, in the game, you try to be the first to the finish line and in others, you have to team-up to complete the level.
Something your kids will learn:
- Real-world dexterity
- Quick decision-making
Things that we’d like to see:
- The target area for tokens could be better defined.
- Add a connector to the base so that Hot Wheels™ track pieces could be attached.
- Our iPad Mini had a little trouble playing the game. We found it worked best after restarting it.
- Make sure you have plenty of light so your iPad can identify the cars when launched.
Osmo Hot Wheels™ MindRacers is great for game nights and provides interactive fun for everyone! If you already have an Osmo base the game is $59 and includes MindRacers LaunchPad, 6 Hot Wheels™ cars, 32 game tokens, and Stackable storage.
