Professor Kim - What's missing here ?

Professor Kim is the 2nd app from developer appp media. It is a game aimed at 4 to 8 year olds that helps to develop memory and observation skills. It is developed for the iPad and requires iOS4.0 or later . It has two different game modes. You can choose single player or two player mode.

Professor Kim - What's missing here is available in  English, Chinese, Czech, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swedish, Turkish. It is edited by Kristin Heitmann and illustrated by Pe Grigo.

The game is based on the concept of Professor Kim in his submarine trying to find the missing animal or object in the sea. There are 6 levels to complete in total. In the single player mode, in order to unlock the  next level, you need to complete each level without any mistakes. Each time you get a guess right you receive a gold fish. You need 5 gold fish to complete the level. If you get one wrong you receive the bones of the fish instead.

At the end of each level you will see your score. There are two boxes, the upper box shows the highest score for the level and below it is your current score. In the teo player mode you will see both scores displayed and the player who has the highest score will have an arrow with a gold fish pointing to it.

The second level is a two player mode , whereby you have to guess the missing object before your opponent does. The fastest finger wins the level. As you progress through the levels the number of objects on the page increases making it more challenging for the user.

The final level takes on a  different playing agenda. Instead of seeing the entire object on the screen in full colour we are shown the outline of the object only using a darkened background. My son found this challenging at first but quickly adapted to it and loved the added challenge it presented. It makes the user focus more on their concentration and attention to detail skills.

In future updates of the app I would like to see the developer adding a reward at the end of the six levels. This could possibly be the unlocking of a bonus level or something similiar.

If you are looking for a fun app to challenge your children aged 4-8 then this is a great app to start with. It will enhance your child's concentration and help with their observation skills.
