Roxie Has A Thing For Vacations And Doors

Posted on August 3, 2011


If your kids love seek-and-find adventures, they need to meet Roxie. OCG Studios has just launched it’s second “Roxie” app so let’s take a look at the two wonderful ones they’ve launched thus far!

Roxie’s a-MAZE-ing Adventure

What do you get when you cross a maze with beautiful artwork and loads of seek-and-find objectives? Why, Roxie’s a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure by OCG Studios, (iPad-only,) of course. This gorgeous app is hard to put down and has charmed players of all ages.

Roxie’s a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure is a brilliantly executed world reminiscent of video games we played as kids.

The feel is classic, however, the graphics are rich and stunning – your iPad (and your kids) will be smitten, wondering what took you so long to buy the app. The design is nothing short of outstanding.

The star of the show is the child playing the game. She needs to navigate a maze through beautiful scenes in order to locate certain objects.

Kids might be traveling by car, air, skis, walking or even rafting and the hidden objects are shown on the bottom of the screen so kids know what to seek, but finding these objects is a definite challenge. There are 16 different screens to navigate and each one takes a lot of time to conquer.

The music is refreshingly original and matches the graphics perfectly. It sets the tone and is the icing on the app-cake.

If you have multiple children who tend to fight over games, no need to referee fights for this one. Roxie’s a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure has a handy profile creator that keeps track of each player’s success. So, there is no frustration over progress lost, and tantrums are avoided. Can I get an amen from the moms out there?

If your kids are fans of the “I Spy” books and similar challenges, they will adore this game. As a matter of fact, for less than the price of a single “I Spy” book you will get this fun, interactive game your kids can’t accidentally rip or wear down. The maze element adds a great extra brain teaser and makes gameplay last longer. It has earned rave reviews from users all over the world and, most likely, your family will fall in love with it, too.

Roxie’s Doors

Roxie’s Doors carries the same look and feel of it’s predecessor, but this time it’s a book. A book about doors and what lies behind those doors.

It’s another seek-and-find adventure that’s fun to look at. On each page lies a door. Behind each unique door lies many curious objects. The narrator (and written script) states objects your child needs to find behind each door. Touch on the objects and watch the list get whittled down.

If your kids like “I Spy” books, they’ll really enjoy Roxie’s Doors. Not only is it challenging, beautiful and unique, but the world behind each door has a bit of a 3D feel to it in that the depth and angle of the picture responds to the motion of the iPad.

I can see Roxies Doors being the perfect Friday night family challenge. Gather around the iPad and see who can find the apple first! Skip around to your favorite doors and find all the objects you can.
