Go Go Mongo! – Simple Game app. Good as reinforcer

Go Go Mongo! You need lot of reinforcer’s in your tool box to work with special needs children. You can add this to the list. It is a very simple game app that is developed around food.  You may have seen tons of these in flash or good old windows children’s CD’s you used to buy. But since this is on iPhone, you can tilt the phone to catch the food.

Objective is to catch the food that is mentioned at the begining of the game (ex; Catch apple). Initial levels are easy but will get complicated as the game progresses. Later stages of the game you should only select the food mentioned even though there are other food falling from sky.

Overall it is a simple app that is good for Toodlers and kids with special needs. This certainly helps to make the kids do hand and eye co-ordination similar to the desktop apps but with iPhone, you will it take it to the next level. You can use it on iPad but it is a bit awkward but not terribly difficult.  The app is inexpensive ($0.99) even if you miss the FREE offer on 4/7/11.

Wishlist

  • The distance between the sky and ground is low and mango is big. Even for a toddler when once they get a hang of it (I am positive they will get a hang of it fast), it will be boring. Increase the distance between the two or make the mango smaller without compromising the beauty of the app.
  • There are 40 levels but they can be reduced to a hand full as we have to scroll 3 screens to go the end.
  • Add some encouragement to the kids as they move thru the app.

Description from Developer

Go Go Mongo! is a fun and educational game for toddlers and children. Mongo is a cute and cuddly character that loves to eat. Mongo has to catch food falling from the sky and children have to use their motor skills to feed Mongo. The game will expand their vocabulary by learning the names of different foods.

Mongo’s silly animations and zany sound effects will keep children entertained for hours. Perfect for those long car rides, plane rides, and while waiting at the doctor’s office.

Mongo helps toddlers and children by:
– Teaching them the names of different foods

– Developing fine Motor Skills

– Challenging their Memory Skills

The game has 40 exciting levels, and we are always adding more. Please provide positive feedback so we can continue to add additional levels and features!

    Hi Tech in Ed, thank you very much for posting this review! We are always looking to make improvements as we are a very small bunch of guys just trying to make learning fun again.

    Regarding the wishlist I had some points:
    Mongo’s size – We were originally testing with 2 and 3 year olds. We tried having Mongo smaller, but they preferred him bigger because they had to make Mongo run less. It is very interesting to watch a Toddler play this game, they move their entire bodies left and right to move Mongo, instead of just tilting their hands like adults do. We are working on another game for a slightly older audience that will have Mongo smaller, have more food falling from the sky, and also introduce a concept of powerups.

    We are also including more points of encouragement in the next update. For example, when a child gets less than 3 stars, we may have the narrator say, “Good Job! Now try for 3 stars!” Other users have also suggested we do a count, so each time Mongo catches something, we can have the voice count up.

    We also are building more levels on top of the 40 existing levels to include more foods. We are trying to group them into food groups, like grains, dairy, junk food, fruits, vegetables. Unfortunately some foods are very difficult to cartoonify!

    Please keep the feedback coming, we love to hear what your readers think!
