Ginkgo Dino: Dinosaurs World Game for Children

The app about dinosaurs, and flying and marine reptiles, is created in collaboration with paleontologists. Each type of visual aid has pros and cons that must be evaluated to ensure it will be beneficial to the overall presentation. Before incorporating visual aids into speeches, the speaker should understand that if used incorrectly, the visual will not be an aid, but a distraction.

ENCYCLOPEDIA

The encyclopedia describes each ancient reptile encountered in the adventure part of the app. All articles are written by paleontologists. We thank them for the thoroughness of their work and their dedication. They worked non-stop on the text for the app even during fieldwork, sitting in a tent next to an excavation!

Our encyclopedia about dinosaurs, and flying and marine reptiles, is an interactive book which you can not only read, but also use for learning and playing! If your child is too young to read or listen to the child-friendly scientific text, she (or he) find so much to do! Even a four year old will enjoy unearthing skeletons, completing puzzles, or comparing dinosaurs with modern animals.

Reviews app
Ginkgo Dino is really two apps in one. Children are invited to explore the prehistoric era first by exploring a lush forest, following Ginkgo -- a wide-eyed monkey-like yet undefinable character -- on a journey to meet dinosaurs and other ancient animals. With every creature there is an opportunity for interaction -- Ginkgo plays with some, shares food with others (and we learn that different dinosaurs like different foods), and shrinks from one or two scary beings. Young players will especially enjoy the leisurely pace and seemingly endless jungle.

This colorfully designed resource is packed with scientific information and exploratory learning, but there could be a better balance between text and gameplay. Kids who have a passion to learn all they can about dinosaurs will likely spend a lot of time visiting the ancient forest and paging through the encyclopedia in Ginkgo Dino: Dinosaurs World Game for Children. Less passionate kids with only a spark of curiosity might not be satisfied with the limited gaming opportunities.

I was a book publisher in the past. Plus I was making kid's apps for few last years. Such a project is a test of all our past knowledge and skills. It doesn't look like anything we've done before. And I couldn't say that it was easy for us. But it was interesting. Hope we made it really cool.
