This is a sponsored post to share our experience with a Starlink: Battle for Atlas starter pack for the Nintendo Switch.
I love pushing video games onto my girls. Some parents may be like why should I care if my girls liked video games. My reply is simple, as a boy being told video games are awesome, I learned a lot of about math and science beating the enemies and competing with friends. While it may be more difficult to get a young girl into gaming, introducing fun games is a good start.
Games teach a lot about physical space and actual physics. I love getting my kids to play games that allow them to build cities or design space crafts used to explore the land and space above. Some of my favorite games as a kid have always tied earth into space exploration and exploring the unexplored!
Kids Gaming For The Holidays
Here for the holidays and a great gift idea is Starlink: Battle for Atlas. This new action-adventure game from Ubisoft allows your pilot to assemble a custom starship and pick a pilot which then attachs to the game controller. Swap parts on your starship including wings and weapons and watch the in-game starship change in real time!
While the game is playable for younger age gamers, it also includes a unique and mature storyline for older players and readers. Having an intriguing story for players to follow along is what I also love about console video games over app based “games.”
Starlink: Battle for Atlas is a game that allows players to explore an open world involving space and Earth like settings while taking part in epic space combat. With flying in an open space environment down to the planet surface for land to surface combat, there is mix of gaming environments. The story is typical with the heroes trying to save the universe or galaxy but has a young cartoon movie twist making it a fun all-around game.
My girls are challenged but also getting the feel for controlling ships and playing in a flying environment. The military these days have aircraft controlled by a remote grounded control console and pilot. Nothing wrong with girls having skills to help them in all situations.
The Learning Side To Gameplay for Kids
What makes Starlink even more fun and allows for learning is seeing how different components give different results. My kids have fun with the ease to interchange starships, weapon arrangements, and pilots. Depending on the situation and foes, along with space of surface combat, being able to change our ship and weapon loadout add to putting thought into gameplay. We can even change out the wings from other starships that alter our in-game ship.
We got the StarFox edition starter pack which includes Starlink with the Star Fox story mission, pilots Fox McCloud & Mason Rana, Arwing starship, weapon attachments (flamethrower& frost barrage), and controller mount. Also included is a DIGITAL Zenith Starship, DIGITAL shredder weapon, and exclusive add-on star wolf missions.
Each Starlink: Battle for Atlas Starter Pack includes a controller mount, starship with pilot, and weapons. All packs allow to change weapons, pilots, and starships with seamless in-game changes.
Starlink is available on Nintendo Switch, PS4, and Xbox One and a great gift idea for girlsand boys. Rated for ages 7+. Check out some other great titles from Ubisoft on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook.
