With fifteen different mini-games, Outwit! provides much more content than most Leapster cartridge games. The games themselves offer a good deal of challenge, but should never get frustratingly difficult, thanks to Outwit's marvelous ability to adapt the difficulty based on a player's performance. When an activity starts, you may be looking at only two possible answers, with a 50-50 chance of picking the right one. Get a few of those correct, and you'll start seeing three possible answers, then four. But if you're suddenly facing five multiple choice answers and you choose wrong, the next question will go back down to four. Also, the game's animal characters are so enthusiastic in their encouragement, and get so excited when you do well, that you can't help but want to do better for them.

Online interaction: Leapster 2 users can win rewards, like certificates or coloring pages,
which can be downloaded from the website when the Leapster
2 unit is connected to a PC via USB cable. With an online account at, parents can also track their children's progress through
this same connection.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
