Our Thoughts

I was curious about this game and watched my 2nd son play with it recently.    The game is packed with logic puzzles that will make you think to be able to bring the key to the lock.   You have to resolve the puzzle to be able to advance on the map.IMG_6496

Based on a medieval theme this game will help your child to develop his thinking skills as he/she has to resolve them to advance.    The ones that Dominic is doing right now are easy according to him.   When I asked Alexandre if he was at the Knight’s Refuge level IMG_6494he said: “Are you kidding?  I’m at the Wolf’s Den and it is getting harder…”  *grin*    As I write this, Dominic just informed me that he has reached the Wolf’s Den already!

There are six places you have to travel to before you reach the castle.    They are: Sheep’s Stables, Wolf’s Den, Lamb’s Hideaway, Lion’s Woods, Knight’s Refuge and King’s Castle.   Through each level, the complexity of the puzzles gets harder and will challenge the person who is playing.    Each of my older sons have their own game going on right now and Dominic seems to enjoy it quite a lot.   After each resolved puzzle, a scripture appear on the screen and a voice is reading it.   I find it interesting that the voice is there because my 2nd son would have trouble to read the somewhat italic writing.     Also included in this software are tutorials to help you play the game.  If you are stuck somewhere, simply watch the tutorial again so you can resolve the puzzle.

My son Alexandre, age 9 1/2,  is the one who used the game the most.    Here’s his thoughts on it:

“ The puzzles are very cool to test your brain.   I like it because there are some cool verses from the Bible.   I don’t really like that the view solution is there because people could just check to do it.   I find that it is showing you how to cheat instead of thinking.”

My son Dominic, age 7, has just started playing with Keys of the Kingdom.   Here’s are his thoughts:

“Cool!  It is fun and awesome.”

Both enjoys playing with Keys of the Kingdom and find the puzzles being more challenging.  I am starting to think that I should tease my own brain with this fun game…

Keys of the Kingdom is available directly from LBGames for the price of 19.98$US.
