Funny Faces is the newest HTML5 game we created for kids. Not only will children love this fun and quirky game, they can also sharpen their cognitive skills.
This is because we designed Funny Faces to help boost kids’ visuo-spatial abilities. These are the abilities we use to perform everyday tasks, like navigating streets, estimating distances between objects, and even writing. They are crucial to have a successful career in sports, arts, sciences, and engineering, among others.
This HTML5 game tests the player’s spatial memory. Each level is designed to be more challenging to solve than the last.
At the start of each level, a drawing of person’s head is flashed for 5 seconds. The player has to remember its details within this period.
The parts of the head and face are then jumbled on one side of the screen. Player has to reassemble them back to the original within 45 seconds. The game ends when the puzzle is solved, or when the time runs out.
Funny Faces currently has 10 levels, each one featuring a funny or eccentric character. Some of the faces kids will encounter include a masked boy, a trendy pink-haired girl, and even a green-skinned alien.
We also made an interactive tutorial available.
In addition, a star rating system is incorporated into the game. This makes gameplay more compelling, as players will aim to get 3 stars in all the levels.
Research shows that playing games benefits the brain by improving cognitive skills such as visuo-spatial abilities. We had this in mind when we built Funny Faces to give kids an experience that combines fun and learning.
The game specifically tests children’s spatial memory, a brain function vital to artists, designers, astronomers, and surgeons.
The game was developed using an engine powered by HTML5 technology. As such, it will work well on any device that has an internet browser, whether it runs on Windows, iOS, or Linux. There is no need to download any app or plugin.
