A few weeks ago we were asked to become Airside Andy tablet & mobile app beta testers.
Today we can share the fabulous news that the app, which is the first kids MMO (a massively multiplayer online game) in the world, is free to download on iTunes and Google Play.
After checking their website I knew that we were definitely the right family to be testing it, and also thought that the girls would be very interested in doing so as they love anything about flying and the airports.
With my family living in the Czech Republic, my husband’s family in Belfast and all our lovely holidays we tend to fly every 1.5 to 2 month somewhere.
This means we have been to quite a few airports and to show my girls actually what is happening behind the scenes, or the glass windows of the airport terminal was very exciting.
As flying is very close to our hearts, both girls straight away liked the fact is resembles what they often see when we are at the airports. The graphics are amazing and they really loved the buzz at the virtual airport.
Both girls loved exploring the busy world of the airport through fun characters and an environment filled with joyous, creative and open-ended play. Customizing their own avatars was also very enjoyable.
The biggest hit was undoubtedly picking up rubbish and catching the baggage, and that way collecting tokens to buy stuff.
We had to learn to catch/rebound luggage tossed off the plane onto baggage vehicles. I myself spent quite a while enjoying this feature! It’s addictive and now we have to fight over whose turn it is!
Our 3-year-old Olivia could spend ages using the binoculars!
All in all, we love this game.
We have mostly played it actually at the airports or on a plane as you will see in our video, comparing and recognising things we could see in the game and in reality.
