ACCM review

This review of Counting Dots - Preschool Toddler Learn To Count Number Game contains the following information:

App description

This App presents a series of numerals in dots. The aim of the game is to touch on the numerals in the correct sequence.

Reviewers comments

This App is designed to help children read numerals. As a child touches on the correct numeral, a child’s voice reads the number aloud. If an incorrect numeral is touched, a sound is emitted and game play cannot continue until the correct number in the counting sequence is touched.

In the parent settings, there are links to additional games and the ability to change game play, for example starting at a higher number or counting by other sequences than 1 (for example the game can count by 2s, 5s or any other interval chosen).

In user testing, some children found the game engaging, but as there is only one main activity game, play was limited and little revisiting occurred.

In App purchasing

Links to other apps by the developer in the parent sections.

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.
