Starlit Adventures is a digging game with a good dose of puzzle added in. The player controls a girl on a mole who must go digging through various environments to find the stars stolen by the bad guy. Along the way, the player will face various enemies, obstacles, and types of dirt.

There are several different outfits/costumes available to buy either with green coins earned in the game or through a real-world purchase. Each costume has different powers that will help the player clear the levels. There are also stickers to collect and challenges to complete.

Starlit Adventures has in-app purchases. The ESRB rated it E for Everyone and LW4K stands by this rating.


Starlit Adventures helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Starlit AdventuresFlexibility

Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

The amount of unique obstacles that the player faces, plus the variety of different suits that can help overcome the obstacles, means that the player has a lot of chances to practice being flexible. They have to deal with a lot of ways to overcome obstacles, find all three stars, and discover the hidden sticker packs. They also have to cope with change as they encounter different suits, environments, and block types. And all of this together means they will be trying a lot of new things. If they don’t, the player will not clear or even complete all the levels.

Planning

Developing and retaining information in our minds while working.

Planning skills used in this game include short-term planning and problem solving. None of the early levels take very long—and the player can only see part of the level at a time anyway. This means any plan the player makes will be short-term. Each level also includes several small problems. Which monster should I eliminate first? Which way should I dig to get the most gems? Which suit is most useful for this level? If the player doesn’t use these skills, they will be unable to completely clear levels and move on to new areas.
