City Hacks in Search of Sleep

This Parent’s Choice¬†award winning app¬†is designed to engage the child’s reading comprehension and deductive skills. This game is actually an interactive e-book that explores the mystery of sleep and why it’s important. When my nephew first started the game, he was confused because there were a lot of buttons. He later discovered that they are supposed to be used for and how how they would help the main character stay up. He wished that there had been a brief tutorial to help him get comfortable with the interface.

As with most kids playing an electronic game, my nephew skimmed over the 20 page narrative, so when he got to the crossword puzzles he was stumped. Once he realized his error he was able to complete the crossword puzzle without any trouble and learned new vocabulary words so it worked out in the end.

All in all, he found the games to be enjoyable, especially hunting for the clues that helped his character to progress. In his own words: “I liked the games and had to find clues so that the character could go to the city hacks. Once I figured out what to do it is a lot of fun and I plan to continue playing.”

Here is a video preview of the game and all that it has to offer. This app is available for free on iTunes.


I received a review copy in exchange for my honest opinion of the product. In this case, since I’m an Android girl, I had to enlist the help of my Apple-immersed nephew for this review. Thanks for your help Braxton!
