JumpStart’s second Wii title, Escape from Adventure Island, is going to be available in retail stores nationwide on November 17th. Escape from Adventure Island is designed for children between the ages of 5-9. It’s an action-packed game that invites players to use their explorer skills and brain power to find a way to escape the mysterious island that they crashed landed on. As players race to collect the pieces needed to repair their blimp, they will navigate 3D worlds both above and below the water. Along the way, players will practice over 150 math, reading, and critical thinking skills all while having fun!
Here’s a few images of Escape from Adventure Island courtesy of Jumpstart.
I was provided a copy of Escape from Adventure Island from JumpStart in order for me to post my review.
You may remember a while back I did another review for Jumpstart, this was of their first Wii game. Unlike the other game, this one is a bit more advanced for elementary age students. Thaddeus will be starting school next year and we thought this would be a great game for him to play because it is for learning. We found that Escape from Adventure Island to be a little more advanced that Thaddeus because he only knows the basic math (anything he can add using his fingers) and he’s not reading just yet (other than his name, and a few other words). However, we know that once he gets into school this game will be a lot of help to him. With that being said, I think you can say that Thaddeus had fun “playing” and “learning”.
