"Time to Escape"Giveaway Featuring Jumpstart For The Wii: Escape to Adventure Island

The folks over at Jumpstart are having a giveaway at the Jumpstart Blog to show appreciation to their fans and get the word out about the new title: Escape From Adventure Island. I have written about Jumpstart before, how much our family enjoys not only their online virtual world, but the Jumpstart games for the Wii. Recently, my family and I were given a copy of Escape From Adventure Island to Review and I thought I would share a few gems with you. As before, my review will be centered around Ease of Use, Educational Content, and The Fun Factor.

Ease of Use: This particular title is geared for ages 5-9 years and rated "E" for Everyone. That being said, The Muffin Tin Girl who is on the younger side of the age range was able to navigate the game. I needed to show her the buttons to push on the Wii to get her going at first, but once she knew what to do, she was able to have fun on her own! The Muffin Tin Boy who is four, had a more difficult time with the game navigation, but not the beginning content.

Educational Content: Escape From Adventure Island includes 150 math, reading, and critical thinking games for your child to play! Seriously, 150! We have only  tapped into 5-6 thus far! It is Jumpstart's standard practice to make their games not only fun, but educational as well. It's one of the reasons I support them. Just a reminder that it is a game for 5-9 year olds, so if you have a preschooler you might want to read my review of Jumpstart's Pet Rescue

Fun Factor: The Muffin Tin Girl could play Jumpstart (and the Wii too) for hours, I think. She never tires of earning points to use towards rewards. As with previous titles, Jumpstart lets each player create their own "Jumpee", a personalized  virtual game player, where your child can change them up any which way they want. What my son has come to love is that there are many "secret" tricks you can do with your Jumpee to get them places. He once spent about 15 minutes perfecting a jump into a waterfall that he thought was so cool! And as always, I love that they are learning and having fun at the same time.
