We love computer games here in the NerdFamily household! But finding something that is both age appropriate and challenging for the kids has been hard. So we were stoked to get a chance to review Secrets Can Kill and Trail of the Twister! Both my 9 year old boy and my 7 year old girl read both the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boy mysteries so they were chomping at the bit as soon as I opened the envelope!
We loved it! These games are mystery and logic based games. Both games have a multi thread take so it takes and immediate action and clue gathering. So they always have to be looking for information that they will need later. That duality enables them to play the games repeatedly because they won’t remember all the logic games and tricks. We know that because first we went through one game as a group and now they are trying to work through it again. And they are still finding it fun and yet challenging.
Now these aren’t easy games but that is the fun. This isn’t something that you would get a child who was just starting to either read or game but someone who is ready for some complexity. We loved it and think it would be a great give for a young gamer!
