The Vikings had to sail away leaving the youngest boy Rudi in charge. He will have to help the local women if anything breaks... and suddenly EVERYTHING breaks! The first task is to get to the broken object through the maze. Don’t worry, Rudi will let you know if you take a wrong turning. Now we have to fix it! Drag the highlighted elements and put them into their proper places. Excellent! Look, everybody’s happy now! Time for your reward: let’s see what happens next...

That shape recognition and problem solving abilities are an advantage is self explanatory. Our game is also mainly about helping others. We want to show your kids a good example to follow - helping others can be fun and rewarding!

Our second goal is to facilitate your kids’ development of symbolic thinking, or to put it simply, to enter with them hand-in-hand into the world of linguistic humor. Our reader’s suggestive intonation should draw your children’s attention to what is being spoken and help them realize that something is out-of-ordinary.

On the menu screen tap GO! to enter the game. You can skip the introduction by tapping the helmet in the top left corner or follow the arrows which show when the scene ends. On any other scene the helmet also always returns you to the map. The map is the scene with four highlighted objects: a broken house, boat, bonfire and fence. Tap the object you want to fix. Each object directs you to a fixing module consisting of a labyrinth, shape matching game and the reward scene. In the labyrinth your task is to get to the object you chose to fix. In the following game you have to move the highlighted bits lying around to the matching white shapes. The reward scenes contain hidden interactions. The arrow on the reward scene directs you to the next fixing module.

On the menu screen tap FOR PARENTS in the bottom right corner of the screen and then the top left corner quickly afterwards to go to the section for parents.
