Embracing a Healthy Family: Nickelodeon's Monkey Quest Review and Giveaway 8/24

Nickelodeon's Monkey Quest Review and Giveaway 8/24


I'm sure you have heard of Massive Multi-player Online Role Playing Games or also known as MMORPGs.  These are the things that any die hard gamer knows all about.  My oldest was addicted to a couple of these and for awhile, this was her social life until she got it under wrap.  The cool thing about MMORPGs is if you have family or friends that play, you can all play together and that can be a lot of fun.  Now Nickelodeon has taken a part in the realm of MMORPGs with their new kid game called Monkey Quest.  One of the biggest differences in this MMORPG is that you can control what they can do with their parental controls which is wonderful.  MMORPGs provide an opportunity to chat and interact with others via game play and chat.  Nick has even considered the different modes of chat with standard chat and easy chat to provide parents more control on what their little one can see or type.
Another nice feature of Nick's Monkey Quest is you can choose the membership and since times are tough, there is a free option or a paid option with extra benefits.  It seems Nick has thought of it all with this one!  From July 30th until August 8th, Toys-R-Us is having a special promotion where if you purchase a $25 card, you get a bonus $15 of game play but the card does have to be redeemed by August 8th.  It's really a great deal as you get so many great extras with a paid membership.
I was able to have two levels of players try it out.  First, my eight year old who has played WoW so she wasn't new to gaming.  My four year old is still a novice and they both play other little kiddie games online so they do know how to get around.  They had fun checking out the land of Monkey Quest, being a monkey of course and killing the ugly monsters.  They did have some trouble with the controls and intensity of the levels but I feel with practice, they would learn how to best maneuver as this is how most games are.  If it were too easy, they would lose interest.  I think it's a good game to help them learn more about functions and using different aspects of a computer program.  Overall, they did like it and I feel in time, they will grow to love it.
