Review: Connectorium - Games for Soul
This educational puzzle and book app is intriguing, challenging and unlike others we have seen.

Features of Connectorium - Games for Soul:
During this uncommon story Nina has to find a way to put the situations right that have become 'disconnected'. Waking up one morning she discovers that things are not the way they normally are.
The story shows her stopping on her way to school to help her family, friends and neighbours by being friendly and supportive.
She helps them to figure things out such as colour mixing, engineering, digestive system, education, cooking, gardening and music. The narrator reads the story and throughout there are associated logic puzzles.
During the puzzles your child draws arrows between the pictures to connect them. When they get it right it turns yellow and when the connection is not right is turns red. Keep making correct connections until the puzzle ends.
If you feel that you have tried all the possible connections you can choose the green tick...at this point you can see how many connections there are supposed to be, giving you a hint, then go back and try again. You can also shake the iPad and this will move all the pictures around into different positions which can sometimes help to solve them.
Each time you make a correct connection you can find out more information about it. This information is written only, not read aloud, so your child can only understand it if they can read or you do to the puzzle together.
Some of the puzzles are trickier than others. This App is good to play together with your child. My nine year old boy loves this and played it all the way through until he solved them all.
10 out of 10!
The story and the characters are a little strange in places, but overall I feel the book and puzzles are beneficial and have good values. The little boy at the end of the story feels disconnected . Nina befriends and supports him letting him see that everyone is connected, he feels much better, as does everyone who Nina meets on her way!
