With all schools and entertainment closed, everyone is talking about how we can continue to educate and entertain our kids. In this new digital landscape, video games have increasingly shown their value as a way to entertain kids when they are at home and as an activity the whole family can enjoy! Also, not forgetting that Easter is coming soon! It is time for everyone to take a break from this stressful COVID-19 period.
Today is the launch of the highly anticipated Gigantosaurus: The Game which is released on Nintendo Switch, Playstation 4, Xbox One and PC platform! This game is brought to you by Outright Games. This is the first-ever video game based on the hit Disney Junior series Gigantosaurus.
Watch the trailer here:
As a quick recap of this hugely popular Disney Junior CGI animated show, Gigantosaurus is based on the bestselling book by Jonny Duddle and publisher Templar. It is about four dinosaur friends, Rocky, Tiny, Mazu and Bill, who like to explore their world to seek out and learn about the biggest, fiercest dinosaur of all: Gigantosaurus.
In this game, you can either play solo or work as a team of up to four players and players can explore and race together across vast, prehistoric worlds in a one-of-a-kind dinosaur adventure full of secrets, puzzles and epic racing levels.
There are four characters to choose from Rocky, Tiny, Mazu and Bill, just like those characters in the Disney Junior animated show. Swapping between characters is very easy by simply pressing the top right buttons.
There are five worlds to explore and each world has small daring quests where you help your friends from getting extinct. So far, we have only managed to complete a small percentage in Savanna world, hence we don’t know the name of the rest of the worlds.
The adventure is mostly free and easy for you to explore. When there are too many players, it is quite difficult to play as all characters have to go in the same direction. There is no split-screen for two or more players.
You collect seeds during the game and you can use it to trade for statues at the collectables area or use it with other items to plant trees in your world. The mini-quests are to collect eggs and place them in their flower porter (total of 10 eggs), plant your trees (total of 30 trees to plant) and find pages for the book. You have to find a way to work as a team to solve puzzles and save the day! And the end of each story is the start of a super rally to the next zone where you hop in your race kart and see who is the fastest!
Overall, we enjoy the game together. It is quite easy to play and younger children or dino fans will love it. My young nephews are big fans of this game! The graphics are great quality and the music provides a good soundtrack to the game.
