Today sees the launch of a new video game called Crayola Scoot. My 11 year old son was lucky enough to try this new game in advance of the launch today, and he thought it was great!
Crayola Scoot is a four-player game and is Crayola’s first video game launch in 14 years! This is a non-violent, old school co-operative game so you can get the whole family together on the sofa to beat the Scoot Legends and have family fun!
My son said there’s a lot of good bits and characters which are interesting. Each has a personality. He created his own character and met another character in the game and this friend taught him the basics of the game. The game was fairly easy to pick up but there were some bits that were harder to understand. I think as he continues to play the game, it will become more intuitive.
The aim of the game is to get the Crayola cup which can only be achieved by defeating all the other characters – doing challenges against them. So this game involves the player being able to level up and take on what is thrown at them.
You can choose the starting levels of: easy, medium and hard to play the game, so as you become more confident, you can adjust the game so it continues to challenge you.
The player is on a scooter in the game, and as they move across the ground, the floor changes colour as if they are colouring in with their scooter.
The creators of Crayola Scoot, family games company Outright Games, believes that video games are a source of good for children, having a positive effect on wellbeing, mood and creativity. Here is a video which shows a bit more about Crayola Scoot.
Here’s some of the cool things you can colorize and customize in Crayola Scoot:
My son’s overall verdict was that Crayola Scoot is a happy game and fun for his age group to play.
