RuniRoon

Description

RuniRoon” is an engaging runner game that helps a child understand visual and/or oral instructions and improve motor coordination.

The child needs to control with his/her body the character (a raccoon) that runs along a path in order to collect the correct objects that will appear. By making side walking movements, the child will help the running raccoon to collect the objects and avoid obstacles or objects that look quite similar e.g. have the same shape but differ in color. When collecting the wrong objects, or hitting on obstacles, the child loses stamina and could even run out of lives.
