Whoowasit: An award winning children’s mystery game wrapped up in all sorts of fun
(4.5 stars with 19 Ratings)
2008 might seem like it was so long ago, but that doesn’t mean a game that was once award winning in that year is retro by any means. Even if it did, Whoowasit is the sort of game that stands the test of time, and it’s currently free to download.
Whoowasit won the award for best children’s game in 2008, but even your children today are going to find themselves enthralled and entrenched in what it has to offer. This digital adaptation of the game of the same name provides a tactical adventure game that’s chock full of mystery and intrigue. There is a castle that is in danger, and it’s up to the player to determine what the cause is, who the person behind it is, and where to find them.
You’ll be on the search of a magical ring that is the only thing that can protect the castle, all while searching through various environments and rooms. Keep an eye peeled for anything that might contain a clue or piece of item that you need to use in order to progress, because anything and anyone (ghosts included) could help or hinder you. The game aims to improve teamwork skills, deduction powers, and a number of other traits that are good to have. Give Whoowasit a shot for your kid and we’re confident they won’t be able to put it down.
