Are your kids game mad and always want to be playing something. I know Kaitlin and Jack like games they can be competitive with and always want to be the best at something. So when asked would we like to try out the Fantastic Gymnastics game I jumped at the chance.
Kaitlin had heard of the game before and was super excited to try it. Fantastic Gymnastics is aimed at children aged 8+ and after playing it I can see why it has an older age range. You need co-ordination and skill to perfect your technique with this game and it can get competitive and frustrating when you can’t get it right.
The aim of the game is to make your gymnast spin on the bars and land in an upright position. It is really tricky to get the technique of spinning the gymnast at first but once you work your technique out it becomes easier. We cheated to start with by spinning him to start it off.
The game guide recommends you push the spin button slow and steady and this is in fact good advice, once you get the right rhythm he does spin really well. It’s then all about hitting the release button at the right time.
This game is all about technique and timing. Once your gymnast is spinning you have to time your release to make it spin and land up right. Overall its a good game once you get the technique right just needs a lot of practice to make it competitive as a family otherwise it can be boring and disheartening for the player who cant get the swing and release right.
The Fantastic Gymnastics game comes with gymnast figure, high bar base, 2 high bar support, landing mat and a game guide which includes a tournament chart.
You can purchase the Fantastic Gymnastics Game from Hasbro from toy shops and online for around £22.
