App description

This App presents players with a virtual house and then allows players to move through rooms and complete set mini-games. Most mini-games are presented as simple and fun chores such as mowing the lawn, ironing, delivering mail or mopping the floor.

Reviewers comments

The goal of this game is to allow players to “play house”, playing a series of 19 mini-games designed around the theme of household chores. These games have a range of activities depending on the area of the house the player is in and include sorting mail, mowing the lawn and mopping the floor. Players are rewarded for completing tasks but are free to move throughout the house, with choice of which task to complete.

After playing ten mini-games the game prompts the player to have a break – with the sun setting.

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.
