App description

Tengami is a game within a pop up book. The player has to double tap the screen to make the warrior walk through beautiful settings of dark forests, mountains and waterfalls and also sail across the ocean.  The player has to fold, flip and slide the screen to move deeper into the game. The warrior has to solve various puzzles and find objects in order to gain entrance to certain areas. The degree of complexity increases with each level. Skills required include problem and puzzle solving skills as well as patience.

Reviewers comments

Tengami is a visually beautiful and original game based in Japanese folklore. The warrior has to solve many puzzles, some of which are quite challenging. He moves through different scenes set in all the colours of each season to find various objects which are needed to progress to the next level. There are hints available as to what he needs to do, which is not always obvious. There is also help online at the developer’s website. Some of the scenes are quite haunting such as wolves howling at the moon. This app would help to increase children’s imaginative and creative skills as well as challenging their problem solving skills. While there is nothing of real concern, parental guidance and-or co-playing is recommended for children aged 4 – 5.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
