Hidden Pictures Puzzle Play
Mac OS Games
Sharpening strategic thinking skills helps build school success. Puzzles and games make it more fun! This app enhances kids’ listening, observation, and problem-solving skills and also introduces the math concept of coordinate graphing.
The kid-friendly approach of Hidden Pictures Puzzle Play turns your computer into a puzzle-making machine. Just add imagination! Make an original puzzle with step-by-step audio guidance, for a friend or family member to play. With this dynamic feature, kids can experience the thrill and challenge of game design. By choosing different background scenes and images to hide each time, the possibilities for new puzzles are endless. To make the timed game even more challenging and fun for the puzzle-solver, the puzzle-maker can add bonuses and penalties called goodies and gags. Once a hidden picture puzzle is created, the puzzle-solver uses the colored lights along the edge of the screen to deduce where to look. Next, he or she enters letter-number coordinates to map out each dig. Watch as one of several animated diggers, or “excavating experts,” goes to work to find the hidden pictures. If a child wishes to solve a puzzle rather than create one, he or she just lets the computer create a randomized puzzle from one of three difficulty levels. Kids can also choose to print out the images to make their own hidden picture hunt around the house. This software program is great for the whole family. Whether your child loves the challenge of solving puzzles or creating them, Puzzle Play Hidden Pictures offers hours and hours of opportunities.
