We Discover Wildlife: Forest Quest Review [iOS]

forestquest_iconIf there’s one type of game I haven’t really played much of on the iPad, it’s board games. This is because I mainly play solo games on my mobile devices when I’m by myself or trying to kill some time. However, there are times when I like playing being involved with what my children are playing, so once in a while I’ll check out a multiplayer game that the whole family can enjoy. We Discover Wildlife: Forest Quest by Kindermatica is a digital board game meant to be played by the whole family.

Since this is a digital board game, it’s a lot more immersive than a physical board game. There’s music, ambient forest sounds, and quite a bit too look at. Graphically, it’s a really good looking game. The art and all the elements are very well done and I like how the game board is presented in a 3D view instead of just a normal 2D game board.

With that said, gameplay is just like a typical board game. Each player rolls a dice to move around the board and depending on what they land on, must either answer questions, take photos of animals, or present items collected as to not suffer a penalty. First person to make it to the finish, line wins.

As a family friendly game, We Discover Wildlife: Forest Quest is pretty good. It’s a really nice way to get the family together like it was back in the days when board games were really popular. I like the educational aspect of the game too as it’s a fun way for kids to learn something new about the animals they love. I suggest playing this on an iPad, although it works equally well on the smaller iPhone screens.
