In Cosmobot—Hyper Jump the player controls a rocket-powered, space-going robot. The player starts the game on the launch pad, taps the screen, and launches the robot into space. The robot then flies from one magnetic planet to another, collecting coins and energy packs along the way. The robot also needs to avoid things like asteroids or getting too far away from the magnetic planets.

The goal of the game is to get as high above the launch pad as possible, collecting as many coins as possible. Coins can be used to purchase upgrades to the robot. There is also a daily challenge and additional robots that can be unlocked.

Cosmobot—Hyper Jump has in-game ads and purchases. The ESRB rated it E for Everyone and LW4K stands by this rating.

Cosmobot—Hyper Jump helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Cosmobot Hyper JumpFocus

Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.

Maintaining your focus when playing this game is very important. If the player doesn't ignore internal and external distractions, he or she will either time their jumps to new planets poorly or fail to notice when they are too close to one of the mines. In either case, the launch will be over and the player will have to start again from the beginning. They will miss out on coins and fail to raise their furthest distance.

Self-Awareness

Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.

This game requires the player to be aware of the cosmobot’s (or “their”) surroundings. They need to know what obstacles the robot could hit and which direction they should launch to get the most coins. It is also important for the player to be keeping track of their emotions. If they aren't paying attention to how they feel--being self-aware--they will become jumpy and jittery and find it difficult to get the timing of the game right. If they reach that point, they will mess up and fail to get coins that are needed for their robot to be upgraded.
