Cure Hunters helps kids practice and improve the following skills:
Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.
Cure Hunters does a good job of changing up the obstacles and creatures the player faces. This means the player can practice using their flexibility skills. As they face new obstacles they must adjust how they react: a spike must be jumped over but a laser shot from the ceiling must be dodged. They also have to be able to cope with change. Creatures that may look almost the same can move differently and some even have ways to cause damage after they are dead. If the player isn't prepared to use different approaches to the things they face in a new level, they will die and end up stuck and unable to move forward.
Understanding our own actions, thoughts and feelings.
This game also provides a chance to practice being aware of self-assessment and awareness. The player has to watch the surroundings of their character to make sure they don't run into any dangerous obstacles or creatures. The player also has to watch their health levels and their ammo levels. If they aren't paying attention to their environment and levels, they will run out of health and die.
