Pixel and Parker is a unique adventure story app for kids. It is a story app, and it is also a board game app. Kids explore a different path every time they read the story, and they get to pick the path by playing games. I love the interesting combination of both game and story to make the app intriguing and engaging for the kids. It is currently free, but even it is not free, I still think it is worth the cost.
Parker is a boy, and Pixel is his cat. Pixel and Parker are good friends. One day, Pixel runs around to chase a butterfly, and by the time Parker decides it is time to go home, Pixel is nowhere to be found. The whole story is set as an adventure for Parker to search for Pixel.
Instead of typical way of storytelling, Pixel and Parker lets kids spin the wheel to decide where Parker should go. It is like Chutes and Ladders, but with spinning wheel instead of dice. There are about 30 different places for Parker to search, and each time the story will be a little different depending on the numbers kids get from the spinning wheel.
At each stop, there is a two page reading about the scene, and activities for kids to interact on the page. Your child will feed the squirrels with acorns, chase the butterflies, ring pixel’s bell, … Each activity is different and use different skills.
The game ends when Parker arrives home and greeted by Pixel waiting on the porch.
One bonus is every time during the play, kids receive a different T-shirt for Parker. Each time before they start a new adventure, kids can pick a different t-shirt for Parker. It is a small activity, but kids all love it.
Parker and Pixel combines storytelling and board game in one, making each play a different adventure. It is a great app for early readers or toddlers who just enjoy a story and play, a great story game for family night.
