Pettson's Inventions iPad App - Reviewed & Recommended

Review: Pettson's Inventions

Excellent educational game of creativity, engineering and skill that stretches the imagination!

Features of Pettson's Inventions:

  • Open your mind to the process of engineering and physics
  • Determination and trial and error are required to solve the puzzles
  • Use your imagination as you are challenged to think about the entire invention before you build it
  • 66 levels give you variety and improves your skill
  • Thinking outside the box is encouraged
This app really works your brain as you try to figure out how to get the Inventions to work using the pieces provided.  

Old man Pettson appears on the screen and verbally gives your objective (in English, Swedish or German).  There is also the possibility of receiving a visual clue, which I think is important when your child first plays the game to ensure it is not too difficult and deters them.

Around the side of the screen you see a range of random objects.  To increase difficulty you can set the game to have extra pieces do not have a place in the invention.  This can be turned off for younger children. 
Drag the objects to where you think they belong to start the invention.  

The inventions are crazy, imaginative, fun and challenging.  Your child has to really think about how each piece relates to the next in order to solve the puzzle, it's not that easy and with 66 levels of increasing difficulty you can be sure your child is learning as they play.

Hear the giggles and enjoy watching these remarkable feats of engineering in action!
