Alba, A Wildlife Adventure is the story of a young girl who has a week to save a wildlife preserve from being demolished to make way for a luxury hotel. Armed with a camera, a petition, a toolkit, and some medicine, Alba wanders around the island making it a better place for the local wildlife. In addition to filling bird feeders, fixing birdhouses, and picking up trash, Alba also helps to rebuild parts of the nature preserve and uses her camera to capture photos of the island’s diverse wildlife. 

Alba also has a journal with information about the various island animals to help her seek them out. The player can see a picture of the animal, where it is located, and even tap a button to hear the sound they make. Getting a picture of the animal will add your photo to the journal. 

The game has a leisurely pace, meaning that the player can really explore the island and try to find all the species of birds and other animals that live there. 

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure is appropriate for all age groups but younger players may need assistance with the reading portions of the game as they provide information on what to do and where to go within the story.

Alba: A Wildlife Adventure  helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Focus: Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks. 

Some of the tasks in Alba: A Wildlife Adventure have a few steps before they can be completed. Once they receive information about a goal, the player needs to use their focusing skills to stay on task and follow the directions they receive from the characters in the game. These tasks are usually only a few steps, so players who struggle with focus can practice in a game that is very low-stakes. Using the task list, the map, and the animal journal together is a great way to remember what you need to accomplish and stick with it. 

Flexibility: Trying something new. 

The island in the game is open to explore, so players can go wherever they want at any time. This means that they can practice their flexibility skills and try something new in between tasks. If the player wants, they can go around and chat with townspeople, pick up trash, try to fix the wildlife information boards throughout the island, or even just sit on a bench and look at the beautiful scenery. For players who struggle with flexibility, this game is a very relaxed way to introduce a little bit of this skill into their life.
