Video GameWonderbox Review

Posted: 2 years ago, last updated 8 months ago.

OverviewOverview

Wonderbox is a action-adventure game where you tap to build beautiful miniature diorama scenes in which to explore. Like Toad Treasure Tracker Each of these worlds has its own micro-adventure with enemies, puzzles, mazes and platforms. Some require you to collect coins to buy swords, others have you fighting goblins to get a key or find hidden treasure.

Along with the adventure challenges the Creator Mode grants simple, powerful tools to sculpt places for their own adventures. Drawing on Minecraft and Roblox you can build with blocks, characters, and fantasy items like swords and grappling hooks. Each piece you place automatically reacts to those around it to create smooth landscapes. Each item has its own behaviours.

With a few interactions you can create game content using the same tools that the developers use themselves. Blocks magically combine into stunning structures and your characters come to life. These new challenges can then be published online.

Skill Rating

5+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. One family told us, "Finn (5) plays Wonderbox on the iPad and likes me watch. He loves the characters, the graphics, the music and the challenges - which are set at just the right level of difficulty for both of us. He told me that it makes him feel, "happy, and sometimes, a bit scared." What I like about it is that it forces him to problems-solve. He starts with an overview of the level, works out the objective and then assesses the obstacles that will have to be overcome. Depending on the number of slugs and trolls he will then decide whether he should play the level or I should."
