Parent's Guide

Essentially a game of Angry Birds, but with the disgruntled fowl replaced with little plastic figures, Gogo Crazy Bones is a simple enough game to get your head round. You create a team of five of your favourite toys, and hurl them across a long map at the other figures, aiming to knock them over to win. There's three different modes of play for each level - Battle, in which you're hurling your team at your opponents' forts to knock them down, Basket, where you need to get each of your Crazy Bones into buckets to score enough points, and Knock Out, where you need to, er, knock each figure out of their hatched area in a game of Gogo sumo.

However, there is a little bit more to the game than meets the eye. Requiring a working knowledge of basic geometry and physics, working out the best angle for your trajectory is a great way for kids to get their head around the basics of physics - especially as it doesn't involve many numbers, but does involve things crashing into each other. But while it doesn't require an intimate knowledge of Newtonian mechanics, the game's decision to limit you to a maximum of five Gogos per level means it may prove a bit too challenging for the youngest of the young, particularly on the harder levels. For slightly older children who collect the Crazy Bones figures though, it may prove a worthwhile investment, especially if they've played and enjoyed the Angry Birds games before.

Although it involves chucking various plastic figures at each other, there's nothing especially untoward about Gogo Crazy Bones. Any collisions that happen are exactly as you'd expect from plastic figures - they simply clonk into each other and bounce off. 'Defeated' figures simply disappear in a puff of smoke, making this thoroughly family friendly.
