What You Need To Know As A Parent
As a parent, you need to understand the complexity behind the simple game. Although it is only two buttons, a gas and a break, there needs to be a careful combination of the both of them to remain balanced and upright. This may teach your kid physics and how going fast isn’t always the best route. It will teach them to slow down and focus on what they need to do to succeed. The game is fairly easy to grasp, there is not much of a plot for it. If your child is young, understand that by clicking a button they can purchase points from the app store for Hill Climb Racing. Upon launching the app, the button saying “GET COINS” should be avoided at all costs due to the high pricing of the game coins which can be easily won playing the game instead. The learning rating of this game is about a 1/5. It is more for the fun than anything and can be a great time passer despite the minimal effort needed to put into the game.
This free racing app is unique in it’s makeup. The car is racing its gas tank and its ability to move on certain plains and topography. The car is not racing any other cars and it is not a competition at all. It will start you out as a beginner on level one with a jeep. There is a huge variety of different cars to chose from but only once you gain enough points to unlock them. You can gain points by playing your way through the levels and gathering coins as they appear on the trail. Once you exit the car choosing screen, you next move onto the landscape. You can pick whichever landscape due to points but it starts you out on “Countryside” as a beginner. The rest are initially locked. This is why it is important not to buy points accidentally from the app store because you are able to unlock all the levels, cars, and landscapes with those extra bucks. As you begin the race, work your way through the break and gas to get a good feel for it. If by instance the car rolls over and you die, you must wait a few seconds in order to not pay for a save. There is an option “tap to save”, but that option costs money. Once the words come up on the screen “Touch to Continue”, that is where you should tap to continue on to trying again or choosing new options. The video tutorial located on this page will show you all the options and where to find each feature in the game. We have come together to give you a video visual of how to play and the correct way to race. Watch the video below for a step by step tutorial of the game Hill Climb Racing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wFDZAfvw0ec&feature=youtu.be There is a hidden feature, which involves the music, sound, and languages. The game can be played in various languages and can be found in the settings button on the top right hand corner of the home page of Hill Climb Racing. On the right side of these options are the sound and music options, which allows you to turn the sound on or off while playing the game. The game is rather difficult the more levels that are achieved. Of course with anything, practice makes perfect. Kids have the time set aside to play their games, and the fact of how simple Hill Climb is to learn will be a major factor in a kids choice to learn it. The different landscapes and different car options will teach your child or yourself the image and meaning behind the words like “countryside, hippie van, tractor…etc”. There is also a potential that a young child may learn some math from Hill Climb due to the adding and subtracting of points to gain new features.
As a whole, we believe that the app has a learning rating of 1/5 and overall experience 2.5/5. The challenge of keeping the car upright is a bit challenging for young children and is recommended for ages 5+. We asked the parents of children who have played the game, and about 50% of the parents said that their child gets bored with the game and goes to another one very quickly. We recommend that you allow the child to try the app and see how they perform under the pressure situations where they have to use both the gas and the break at the same time as trying to find a red gas tank. Overall experience: 2.5/5 – varies for each person Learning experience: 1/5
