Game Type: ESRB Rating: N/A Platform/Console: , LWK Recommended Age: 6+ Thinking Skills Used: ,

The goal of Forest Battle is to save pet animals that are being held captive by fearsome and dangerous wild animals. Teaming up with other pet animals, the player’s job is to shoot them towards the wild ones, knocking them over to incapacitate them. By knocking out all of the wild animals, the player saves the pets from their dangerous captors. The game is colorful, cute, and easy to play, lacking any offensive materials, making it suitable for players ages 6 and up.


This Game is Good for Kids Who Need Help With:


Developing a systematic approach for setting and achieving goals.

This game challenges players with creating a plan of action before attempting a task. The player only has a limited number of attempts to hit all targets, making each shot count. The player must use her Planning skills not only to aim her shots well, but to also decide which of the wild animals she wishes to target. Many times there are more wild animals to target than pets to launch, requiring the player to plan out ways to take out more then one wild animal per shot. This could mean hitting them directly, or destroying the structure below them causing them to fall. Without good Planning skills, the player will often fail to hit all of the wild animals with the limited number of attempts she is given.

Working Memory

Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working.

In Forest Battle, the ability to hit multiple targets with different animals is key to maximizing a player's score. Working Memory skills can help the player recall firing angles that resulted in effective shots, as well as which type of launch animal is best suited for certain strategies. There are four types of launch animals, and each has its benefits, like being better for demolition or for precision aiming. By recalling such information while playing, the player will make more damaging hits, be more accurate and use fewer shots -- all of which will bolster her score.
