Review:

Join Aartem and Autumn Aardvark as they journey through the Monkey King's temple to find his treasure. Children use their phonics, story sequencing, alphabet, and word-building skills to complete over forty levels of puzzles to move through the temple. Players call on problem-solving skills to overcome obstacles throughout the temple, practice their story sequencing by discovering and creating chalk rubbings of story elements, and unlock doors by completing word building activities. The game also hones fine motor skills and hand-eye coordination as well as understanding of cause-and-effect.

The game does follow a very predictable pattern of activities, but they progress in difficulty, which keeps children interested and motivated. After children complete the initial forty levels of puzzles, they can unlock bonus content or play cooperatively with a friend. The cooperative activities are great for building teamwork skills. This entertaining and habit-forming game teaches a wide variety of skills.
