This is so much more than the board game you purchase. This is also an app that you use in conjunction with the board. The board is just the beginning! My 10 year old son absouletly loves Bloxels. He makes his very own video games to play and share. He likes the fact that he can create his own characters, his own levels and tell his own story. He is on the 6th rendition of one of his games and each and every game is better then the last. He is always learning new and exciting things with Bloxels. Bloxels encourages him to get in touch with his creative self and develope his storytelling abilities. As a parent I do not have to monitor or limit his Bloxel time because every minute engages him think, learn and grow. Kudos to the inventors of Bloxels!

Got this for my son's 10th birthday. He was super excited, had seen the commercial for it, wanted it SO bad. By the end of the day, he said the game was "garbage" and wanted to know when we could get him a present that worked. You spend time getting the gameboard just right. Then are expected to sit PERFECTLY STILL( have you met children?) while the tablet "captures" your design. Just to finally have it load and looks nothing like your design gameboard. Kids and adults both tried to get this to work. May have gotten one board, but no heroes, after hours of trying. What I thought was going to be screams of joy, instead tears of disappointment. Not the experience I wanted for a special birthday. Total waste of money and lots of time.

            This is a wonderful game that helps put creativity and free thought into a normally mindless activity. Tablet play is always a sensitive subject as far as constructive uses are concerned but I would be okay with the kids getting lost in the tablet for a couple hours if they are playing this. It is a simple platform to use making it quick to learn but at the same time the possibilities are vast as to the things you can do and create...even adults can get a kick out of creating with this.

              Comments about Arco Industries Bloxel Video Game Creation Platform:

              My son took a Bloxels class at our local library, and he has enjoyed the game ever since. To further support his interest in game design, we recently bought the Bloxels Starter Kit for him. The starter kit comes with the game design board, a game guide, a poster, and colorful blocks to create characters, backgrounds, etc.

              Furthermore, the Bloxels' App seamlessly connects with the game board to place your creations into the game. The app also explains all of the functions of the different colored blocks and how to use the board with the app. Game creation couldn't be easier and more fun! I definitely recommend this kit for any child interested in game design and for any parent who wants an educational addition to video games- so that their child isn't mindlessly sucked into another video game.
