What you should know:
Forget Batman and Spiderman; these superheroes have nothing on Rhinomite, a flying rhinoceros with an impressive wardrobe who responds to taps and swipes that follow spatial preposition commands.
This cleverly designed game focuses on the use of a wide range of spatial prepositions to help kids fly their horned superhero. Even the placement of the words—at the top left corner of the screen—is deliberate and intended to reinforce early reading skills. The game features prepositions like above, around, below, between and through. It also gives directional commands—left and right—to caution children about obstacles and other items in Rhinomite's path. As players move their superhero through a bustling city, they earn coins to spend on a selection of superhero suits, encouraging children to practice math money concepts and express themselves creatively through outfit selection.
The game is challenging and gets harder as kids progress through the levels, which decreases the likelihood they'll get bored quickly. Despite a lack of violence often associated with comic books, the old-school graphic novel interface will appeal to both boys and girls in a wide age range, allowing the app to grow with children.
