Quality

Gozoa: The Key Quest is a very well planned and executed app that has so much for children to learn and explore. The developers have done an amazing job creating a very intricate game that is still easy to use. With various helpful hints throughout the app, children learn to navigate through each world to collect the key and overcome various obstacles. The graphics are great and include various underground tunnels, diamonds, flowers to collect, and villains to defeat. Overall really great organization, graphics, and simplistic set up.

Education

While the math problems are scattered throughout the levels, this app does require a good amount of logical thinking and problem solving to move through the obstacles. There are various jump boards that launch Gozoa to other levels and in order to get to the math problems, players must open certain doors etc. The difficulty of the math problems are based on the difficulty selected for each world (there are 6 total) and they can be addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division problems. There are also problems that require players to select the correct time on the clock or set the time according to the digital numbers that show. This variety of math skills helps to keep things interesting and challenging for children and once they complete one level, they can move up to he more advanced levels for more challenge.

Entertainment

Since this app plays very much like a video game there is a ton of fun to be had. The developers have created intricate levels for children to move through on top of the math problems that provide even more challenge. In addition to moving through the various levels and challenges, players can earn golden flowers and diamonds that they can use to purchase things for Gozoa’s home and laboratory. This additional feature may inspire children to go through the other difficulty levels to earn more diamonds to use in the store so they can add more clothes, furniture, and other belongings to Gozoa’s home.

The only thing that might be a little frustrating is the fact that at this point there are only 2 worlds that are available. Once children move through the second world and find the key, the next world doesn’t automatically unlock. This may be coming with the next update of the app and requires players to go back to one of the other difficulty levels to play if they want to keep playing until the other worlds are included.

Value

Priced at just under four dollars this app is a bit higher of a price tag than some apps, but I assure you it is well worth it. The developers have included 6 difficulty levels, math problems, logical reasoning challenges, and a fun video game-like environment that children will love. With more worlds to open, this app is one children will likely enjoy for hours.

06/22/14: After careful consideration the developer has dropped the regular price of the app to $1.99.

Child Friendliness

What I love about Gozoa: The Key Quest is how the developers incorporated lots of helpful hints and instructions for children as they move through the app for the first time. With each new challenge, a little helper pops out of a box to teach players what they need to do. There are also indicators throughout the app that point players in the right direction to find their next math challenge or lever to locate. There is also a map that can be accessed at any time that allows children to see the entire level so they know where to go.

Parents can rest assured knowing this app is super safe to play. There are no social media links or advertisements to be concerned with though there is a button that provides info on more Gozoa apps however it is protected. Overall, this is a great app for children ages 6-11.
