Brave Kid releases Kubi
Brave Kid Games has announced the release of its first software title, a new children's software title for the Mac called, . Created with the PTK game engine, Kubi includes 5 inventive activities that encourage kids to explore their creative sides and to challenge their spatial skills. "With the first activity of Kubi, the child is equipped with a palette of colorful paint that can be placed on an on-screen board. With this board as his canvas, the little artist can create pictures, patterns, words and anything a child can imagine." Kubi costs $20. A free demo is available online.
Two of the activities are puzzles: one simulates a "slide puzzle" where players must slide slices together to form a whole picture, while the second is made up of layers and the challenge is to place the layers in the correct order to build a picture. The remaining two activities are two games that involve matching an original picture, which is on the left of the screen, with a copied picture on the right of the screen that the child is required to copy by "painting" the blank canvas to exactly match the original.
