Go Car Go is a great app because it’s fun, challenging game where you build your a car to make it over an obstacle course.
I must admit it took me a while to appreciate this app. The graphics are simple and the idea seemed basic – plus the first levels seemed easy. Sure – throw a couple of wheels on a concrete block and watch it zoom the the finish line. Then it got more challenging – and we all got obsessed. I have spent a lot of time with my kids strategizing on how tall to build the car, where to put the wheels, what way to stack blocks to prevent drag or provide momentum. It’s been quite the family bonding time.
Without really knowing it, we’re learning some physics in the process. Although, this app is probably best for kids 6 years and older, younger kids will enjoy building the cars too. Surprisingly, my youngest didn’t make his creation look like a car at all, but more like an upright plane. It might not have made it to the end, but he had a great time building it.
