TGWK’s Review of “Fun With Thandros” v1.0 (iOS)

Fun With Thandros is a new educational title from developers Thandros Media. The game is aimed squarely at children with a rating of 4+ however, the game is suitable for children much younger than that as there is a game mode for children 3 and under.

In Fun With Thandros, children will be playing interactive games and stories with Thandros, a fun loving robot who likes to go on adventures. The game features 4 modes of play that they’ve split up based on age groups so it’s a game that your children can grow into if they are very young. No matter what their age is though, Fun With Thandros has something for everyone.

There are four different game modes available. Play! is for children 3 and under. Here players just press on the characters different body parts to make them move and do interesting things. It’s basically just visual stimulus which most kids that age enjoy. Maze Quest is for children 3 and older and requires more skill to play. The mazes are pretty challenging, but they will keep your kids interested as they are part of a story that takes place while they are playing. The last two games, Stories and Twins, are for children of all ages to play. Stories is an interactive story book where players can make choices and decide the outcome of the story. Twins is a simple memory game.

Out of all the 4 modes, my son enjoyed playing the Stories and Maze Quest the most. He’s almost 5 years old so Play! and Twins were a bit too simple for him but he did go through them a couple of time and did find them enjoyable to play. He loves listening to stories so I know that this was probably going to be one of his favorite modes. The voice acting is very clear in Fun With Thanatos and it was a nice touch having the voice actor do different voice for different characters. He also enjoyed the fact that he could make different choices in the story.

With Maze Quest, he found it quite challenging but enjoyed the story aspect of it. The mazes can be a bit difficult but luckily the game shows “breadcrumbs” of paths he’s already tried so with some trial and error he was able to make it to the end on the harder mazes. He is getting better at the mazes though and doesn’t need to use the breadcrumbs as much anymore.

Fun With Thandros really hits the mark when it comes to children’s games. The art looks hand drawn and is fun and colorful. It’s very child-like which I think should help it connect with children better. What I really like about the game is how they split up the different mini games based on age. It means that children can play games that are suitable for their age range, but can also try the harder games if they want more of a challenge. The games themselves aren’t really too difficult though but Fun With Thandros is a great game to start children off on if they are still fairly new to gaming.

Fun With Thandros is available now in the App Store for $0.99. It works on all devices with iOS 3.0 and higher.
