This Game is Good for Kids Who Need Help With:


Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

In this game, players must quickly get used to dealing with many different types of enemies at once.  Each type of enemy uses different tactics and each one requires a different strategy to defeat. Sometimes players will need to block an incoming attack before making an attack of their own, while other times it is more beneficial to rush straight in and attack an enemy head-on. Tougher enemies, like bosses, require different and more sophisticated tactics. If players do not remain flexible with their approach, they will not be able to progress past points in a level that require a change in tactics.

Self Control

Managing our actions, feelings and behaviors.

Players must collect Rage Orbs in order to perform Rage Moves. These moves are special techniques that are deadlier than normal attacks, but demand a steady supply of energy. If players want to master all of Wolverine's techniques like Whirlwind Spins, and Tornado Claws, they will need to control their impulse to overuse Rage Moves, as the Rage meter will diminish quickly. By off the use of Rage button, players will still have enough enegry to unleash these special techniques on stronger enemies.
