One bonus game includes the same locations and games that Rosie has already journeyed to and completed, but also includes an advanced shape activity that introduces children to diamonds, stars, hearts, and semi-circles.
The second bonus game allows players to navigate Rosie’s boat through the water. The narrator speaks the name of a shape and players avoid the obstacles in the water in order to navigate the boat through the gate with the image of the spoken shape. The name of the shape also appears at the top of the screen and players can tap the microphone to have the name of the shape repeated.
The settings section of the app allows users to mute the narration, reset the game, and select the number of questions to ask in the bonus game. A link to Unit11’s website is also accessible through the settings section.
There are no social media links or in-app purchases in Rosie’s Boat Takes Shape.
This app introduces and reinforces basic shape recognition to younger children in an enjoyable way.
Rosie is an enthusiastic child, who is trying to collect parts for her damaged boat. Your child then helps Rosie in her mission. They will visit a farm, a shop, and a factory as well as a lookout point to collect parts for the boat where they will learn about basic shapes and practice what they have learnt.
To provide learning reinforcement, when your child completes the story, a special bonus game is unlocked with Rosie in her boat.
The story is fully narrated and if desired the audio can be muted.
