Review and Giveaway: Time Island--Online Virtual Adventure CLOSED

Time Island is a virtual learning game that takes place on an island inhabited by creatures called Goggs.   The goal is to survive and outsmart the Goggs. 

Some games are educational and some are fun, teaching various skills such as hand-eye coordination, spatial reasoning, music, logic and mathematics.  The theme is survival in nature.  Your children can come in contact with other players, if your settings allow, but curse words are automatically banned from Time Island.  Site managers ensure that Time Island is free of cyber-bullying and other inappropriate subject matter.  If rules of behavior are broken, parents and children will be warned and can be banned from the site.

This game site is a lot of fun.  First, you get to name and create your avatar.  You get to explore many different island habitats, such as beaches, lagoons, and caves.  Along the way, there are various things to collect and do.  You must keep up your avatar’s hygiene, feed it and clean your hut once a week!  I like that they have to clean their hut—great idea!  You can earn chips to purchase items at the You can catch up on the news in the Time Island Sun which is filled with interesting educational facts, riddles and other tidbits.
I really liked the graphics.  They were colorful and very appealing and overall, the game is a lot of fun.  The downside to Time Island is the amount of time that it takes to load and once got stuck.  While it is not painfully slow, it does take a few seconds for games to load.  It isn’t always clear what you need to do or where the buttons are.  Reading the FAQ section helps a lot.  However, I think this game has a lot of potential and my daughters, ages 5 and 7, really liked it.  I think it would be equally appealing to boys as well.
