ACCM review

This review of Peppa Pig Sports Day contains the following information:

The level to which the game was reviewed

All areas/levels of the game were accessed and played.

App description

Sports activities on this app include running races, long jump, and bicycle races. These activities require the player to tap the screen and follow simple instructions (which can be translated into 12 different languages) to activate their chosen character. Other activities include selecting an ingredient or item to make an ice-cream or create a rosette (ribbon).

Reviewers comments

The activities in this app are very simple and only gross motor skills are required to tap the screen to activate the chosen character.  For example, in the running race the player taps the screen to jump over a puddle (and other obstacles) along the track. There is some creativity involved when making choices for the type of ice-cream and rosette the player wants to make, although in these activities players may find the choices quite limiting.  On completion of each game the player is rewarded with a sticker, which they can use to make a digital picture. There is a grown up section on the opening screen, which is protected by a difficult maths equation and has links to other Peppa Pig apps and websites, a privacy/cookie policies and a Kids Safe website.

In App purchasing

None.

Online information

When the app is first opened the player is asked to choose a profile character for the game ie bee, flower etc. However, this appears to be only used to record the stickers the player wins, which can be redeemed in the picture making section of the app.

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.
