App description

Similar to LEGO and DUPLO building toys, this app offers a playful approach to everyday work related activities. Each play round simulates a day from the perspective of the person running the food stand: opening up the stand in the morning, storing delivered food, taking orders from customers and serving them, and at the end of the day, cleaning and locking up.  

Reviewers comments

This interactive virtual reality app features intuitive game play and offers some learning opportunities by introducing the player to some essential activities and tasks that are required to run a food stand. One of the tasks is to use LEGO building blocks to build ice cream creations according to the customer's order, which if the blocks are combined correctly is celebrated with clapping, cheering and confetti. Although there are no in-app purchase opportunities during actual game play the start page, and "for parents" section, links to related apps and products. These sections are protected through basic maths problems like "1x6", therefore parental guidance recommended.

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.
