Dig-It! Games Roman Town Review


Dig It! Games Review

Hi neighbors!

Here is a review of Roman Town from Dig-It! Games!  It is an IOS app that my daughter has been playing on my iPad for the last month.  We are reviewing this app for the TOS Crew.  Dig-It Games has other educational apps available too, so be sure to check out their website.  There are a couple others I am sure my daughter would really enjoy.  These apps can be used for homeschool, or just as a fun time of learning and play for your child.


Dig It! Games Review

My daughter has had a lot of fun playing Roman Town, well, all but the Roman Numerals puzzles.  She does not enjoy Roman Numerals, so she was quite vocal about having to work with them.  When I asked for her opinion of the game, that was her big complaint.  On the other hand, when it comes to learning about history, that is an entirely different story.  Sometimes I am not even sure where the desire comes from, but she LOVES history.  She often quotes an off the wall fact she has learned and we all just stare at her.  Yes, I do go verify it at times, and thus far she has not been wrong.  Roman Town was right up her alley as far as that goes.  She also enjoys games that require exploring and puzzle solving, just as long as they do not include Roman Numerals.


Dig It! Games Review

Roman Town is available through your AppStore.  In this game your child will be searching for a master thief, Ladrone.  To complete their search your child is required to solve all kinds of puzzles.  Some of the included mini games  or puzzles are:
Artifact Identifier (My daughter's favorite.)
Calculi (This game is shown below.)
Concentration
Knucklebones
Roman Numerals (The not so fun game for my daughter.)
Pipes

Your child will be able to explore Pompeii, play some ancient Roman games, all the while tracking Ladrone and learning about ancient Rome.  The app is free, but there are in game purchases necessary to access certain areas of the game.  Please be aware that this are there.


Dig It! Games Review

Roman Town is one of those games I like as a parent, game based learning.  My children enjoy playing, and yet while doing so they are also learning history, math, and logic.  Rather than just idle play they are actively learning when playing Roman Town.  Roman Town meets National Education Standards, along with History, Math, Social Studies, Literacy and Common Core requirements.  Roman Town is designed for middle school students, although other ages may enjoy the game too.  The game will help promote critical thinking, problem solving and independent learning.
