What's it about?
To play KNOWLEDGE BATTLE, first select your language (English, Spanish, or Portuguese). Sign up for the free trial or pay for the monthly ($5.99) or annual ($59.99) subscription. Set your kid's profile and tap Play. After selecting an avatar, tap on it to read the intro story. Choose an academic subject to play a game, and begin the game. Collect "Power Cubes" as you complete games. Kids can also play arcade-style games in between the academic skills-based games.
Is it any good?
There's a broad range of academic subjects, skills, and games on this app, which includes customized age levels. Knowledge Battle will be especially engaging for kids who love arcade-style games and collecting points. The games played in between the educational games resemble some of the most popular just-for-fun apps, and kids can rack up big point totals quickly. Some of the educational games on this app include audio prompts, while others require reading. For some kids, the rapid background music that plays during games may be very distracting (and annoying for parents). Turn it off in Settings on the main page. Overall, Knowledge Battle is a good choice for broad, low-stress educational skills practice for kids age 5 to 12 who love arcade games.
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about how kids can balance their time on Knowledge Battle between the eight subject areas. Sure, it may be more fun to play games in a subject area that's easy, but why is it important to practice all academic skills?
Watch as your kid plays some of Knowledge Battle's games and ask questions about what your kid is seeing and doing. Read Common Sense Media's How Can I Help My Kids Learn with Digital Tools?
