App Alert: Odd Squad Blob Chase

Photo-A-Day #3573

With the new episode of ODD Squad Saves the World today there was also a release of a new app for ODD Squad. This one is pretty fun and follows something that happened on the show. A blob gets loose in ODD Squad headquarters and it is up to Olive and Otto to chase it down. In ODD Squad Blob Chase you take the role of an ODD Squad agent, like Eva has above. I guess we’ll have to call her agent O’Eva. Using Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division you have to trap the escaped blobs. As the difficulty increases so does the way in which you use the tools to help capture the blobs. You also get different blobs to capture and they do different things. Some may reverse direction when they get to the edge whereas others will fall off the edge. You have to think ahead before you start taking away or putting up obstacles in the blob’s path.

We were provided with a download code to play the game and review it. I let Andrew, 3 years old, play with it first and he got the hang of it right away. He loves numbers. Eva also loves math and she had a great time playing as well. The game is geared for kids 5-8 so it is perfect for her to play. It is also good for Andrew to play and challenge himself. More about the game below. Continue reading App Alert: Odd Squad Blob Chase
