New Super Lucky's Tale
New Super Lucky's Tale is a running and jumping game where you play a fox on a quest to recover pages from a magical book that will save his world. Play is action-oriented but the islands and characters are full of quirky characters and treasures. It stands out not only for the more approachable challenge but also for the fluid platforming mechanics.
The exploration, platforming and lovely worlds are of such high quality that this is an excellent game for players of any age. Play involves exploring the hub world and collecting tokens on the platforming levels while also staying safe from dangers and enemies.
The result is a classic platforming experience that is also approachable for a wide range of abilities. The quality of the characters, well-designed gameplay and variety on offer make this a great option for players of a wide range of abilities.
Review difficulty level
Some children might feel frustrated with different game levels or obstacles. Talk to them about recognising when it's time to take a break and turn their attention somewhere else. Often, when they come back relaxed, they're more likely to find success.
Master skills together
Some platform games require a lot of skill and combination movements, which can be frustrating to master. For younger players, set time aside to help them learn and practise the skills.
Platform games can promote perseverance. Encourage children to "try, try again" until they succeed while taking regular breaks.

Families have "My 7-year-old loves Lucky's Tale. She prefers to play with someone there to talk about it with. In the beginning, she needed a lot of help as it was her first platformer but she’s got the hang of it now. She likes to be encouraged to retry when she’s stuck and Dad sometimes does some difficult jumping for her. She’s brilliant at the logic puzzles where you have to push the statues around in the right order. We never help with those as we feel working things out logically by herself helps her critical thinking in other areas. She does tend to only play for a max 20 mins at a time."
Rated PEGI 3 for occasional, very mild violence in a comical or abstract context. Suitable for all ages. Players run and jump through 3D and side-scrolling environments. They can hop on enemies' heads and/or use a tailspin to stun them. Enemies disappear amid puffs of smoke, colourful light effects, and coins when defeated. Some of the bosses can be a bit disturbing or menacing.
