Nut Rush 3: Snow Scramble is an HTML5 run and jump sidesdcroller where players guide a squirrel though a winter-themed obstacle course. Using only one button, players control the trajectory and distance of each jump. With well-timed leaps, players can maneuver their character through the course with ease. Like most run and jump games, players hop from tree branch to tree branch in an effort to reach to end of the course. Obstacles consist of laterally moving gingerbread cookies and stationary snowmen. Appropriate for children 4 and older, Nut Rush 3: Snow Scramble allows players to practice their flexibility and focus thinking skills in an immersive and engaging environment.
THIS GAME IS GOOD FOR KIDS WHO NEED HELP WITH:
Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.
By nature, run and jump games force players to think flexibly. Random obstacles make it difficult for players to simply sail through a course. Instead, players must time their jumps, while gauging the amount of height they need in order to avoid falling from the stage. Holding the jump button for a longer period of time will result in a higher, longer jump, while tapping the jump button causes the squirrel to make a quick, decisive hurdle. The same logic applies for the tree branches, which are spaced in a similarly random fashion. Players must read and react -- adapting to changes in the course with speed and intuition.
Getting started and then maintaining attention and effort to tasks.
Goal-directed persistence is an important part of the focus thinking skill. Simply put, goal-directed persistence is the drive and determination a player must posses to reach the end of a course in Nut Rush 3: Snow Scramble. Within each level, there are a number of smaller tasks for players to achieve. Collecting acorns and finding powerups ultimately dictate the player's score. Therefore, it is in every players best interest to collect as many acorn as he or she can. However, this task requires a high level of concentration, as grabbing acorn tends to make certain obstacles harder to avoid and most jumps more difficult to make. But with attention to detail and an eye toward the end goal, players should have no trouble at all.
