We travel a lot and as a mom of 3, the last thing I want are kids that are bored or kids that are not having fun. Travel is delicious so the getting there should be fun too! Often as we attempt to catch our flights, transfer planes or get to a destination via air, we are often met with delays.
Being a prepared mom, with well-traveled kids, the smartphones are charged and the tablets are ready for an active day. The tablets and smartphones have apps on them that amuse and entertain the kids. The gaming App that I will share with you never has downtime on it, so it is play, play, and play some more!
Discovering a fun game app for travel really can change the mood of everyone in the travel party because if there are a few happy faces it is hard not to be part of it. I love smartphones and tablets because you can be so very busy on them and carry so little with you and I am sure you too will lavishly live travel out loud discovering even more in this app.
In my world, if an App is free and fun and family friendly it gets my winning vote. An additional seal of approval is when I actually sit down to play the app I am not discouraged by my lack of tech savvy and gaming but rather spurred on to really defeat all the obstacles. The App Spot It! Duel is exactly all of this and fun, just in case I forget to say that word, it is FUN! Remember, I am playing this app as an adult and to me, the challenge is to defeat, conquer and level up, while my kids are playing it for FUN! (ha, sometimes adulting stinks)
A Little Spot It! Background
Spot It! Duel is the app that I am going to share with you today. The (app) game is for kids ages 4+ but I will tell you if you like games with matching and you love your mobile tech (smartphones and tablets) you are going to love the app. My kids range in age from young teen to older teen and they are all going crazy with the app. Perhaps the kids love the app as they are already familiar with the Spot It! brand of games.
The Spot It! games they are familiar with offer endless play and no downtime and I can compare it to a jamming game of ‘Go Fish’ that challenges and pushes each other’s buttons to be better with each round. The game Spot It! offers a game where you have to make lightning-fast choices and play is for up to eight players. In fact, the game has won dozens of awards and is known globally. The app is available for iOS and Android.
Discovering A Fun Game App For Travel
Spot It! Duel App
I never get sick of seeing VICTORY on the screen, let me share more about the game. Spot It! Duel is the brand’s first-ever video game adaptation. Back in the day we would carry cards around with us, and a whole bunch of clutter to stay occupied, now it’s all in your hands and in your pocket, ain’t life grand?
Spot It! Duel is perfect for the whole family to play and it does not take a game night to play it or pull it out. Download the app and play with it. You do not need to haul cards around with you, it’s mobile and an app that you put on your smartphone or tablet. You can play the game in the car, in the airport on a cruise ship, on a train, it travels with you! The overall theme of Spot It! Duel is a fast-paced, very addictive symbol matching game oh and did I mention it is free?
From my point of view, the game is simple to play yet challenging enough that you stick with it and it is great for all ages, not just kids. As you move into new Arenas (that is the term for the levels) you will find the challenges increasingly and considerably harder. Your hands will fly and your eyes will roll, it is great gaming fun.
What Can You Buy
If you want more options (but you won’t need them) Boxes, Gems, Coins. Boxes provide people, score bonus and gold all which play into your favor when playing. Gems help you open boxes faster, and if you buy more coins you can buy more boxes or gems.
Boxes can also be won as you move along in level of play. If you win your round or level up you earn a box. A box has these characters in them (characters differ by level) and each character has some special traits to help you earn more points and to move up to the next arena if you can figure out how to wield their power.
ENTERING THE ARENA
Nothing is more frustrating than the ongoing battle with Frosty. Frosty freezes your ability to match, and he takes all the matching items for himself. The whole battle can make you want to challenge yourself even harder. When you finally do break through freezing powers of Frosty it is an incredibly ‘icy’ winning sensation! Personal experience speaking here as I battled my starting in Arena 2.
Ray looks like a football player and you will meet him in Arena 2. Ray increases the user’s score (whichever player is using him) and each move eliminates the other bonus symbols. In other words, if you are not using Ray you are gonna ‘suck it’ and you will not level up!
Every time you win you get a box, in that box hope and pray you find Hattori. Hattori will transform symbols to get a bigger combination which gets more points in order to move up to a new Arena.
In the image above I was Mad DX and I was battling Frosty! Get ready for the ability to match all symbols of the same color INSTANTLY on your disk and the shared disk if you have Mad DX. Again, Mad DX comes through winning a box and he will help you to get more points so that you can start moving up through the Arenas.
It’s time to travel, so download the app, and have some fun while you hit the road, travel by plane or however you do travel. Lavishly live travel out loud and have some family fun!
