Nancy Drew: Codes & Clues
The Nancy Drew Clues and Codes app was a huge hit with our parent and child testers. The graphics are very cute and well-done. The sound quality is great and the game is easy to navigate. Parents especially liked discovering a fun way to introduce coding to their children. Kids were engaged from the start, excited and thrilled to be able to help Nancy and her friends solve a mystery that spans six chapters. This all happens immediately because as soon as the app opens the story line starts and immediately draws your child in. After Nancy explains the mystery it is up to your child and her friends to find the clues and then create the code to help her dog (which your child gets to name) solve the mystery. As you progress through the game there are lots of fun seek and find activities. The coding part of the game is picture based and simple to understand. Along with coding, this app will help foster spatial recognition and get your child thinking about problem-solving. Also, while playing your child will beam with pride and a sense of accomplishment after clues are found.
