Oh come on… That’s a wrap. That’s a hax… Fabulous play on words, right? I do of course expect you to lie to me and lavish me with compliments on how funny and amazing I am. For the last month (Cyber Security Month to be exact) our family has been
addicted playing the new game by Cyber Griffin, Hax Attacks. It’s available on iPhone and iPad (for $.99 and $1.99 respectively) and is totally worth it. This game is a truly fun game with a side of real life cyberlearning tips.
I was amazed at how much my teens, husband, and I learned by playing this game. We all needed a great refresher on passwords, suspicious links, and how to avoid viruses and malware. Who doesn’t need tips and tricks on that? But the truly amazing thing about Hax Attacks? The cyber tips don’t get in the way of game play. And if you just really want an enjoyable game for all ages (I would say about 4 and up could grasp the basic concept but maybe not the cyber tips) Hax Attacks by Cyber Griffin is for you.
We decided to take a little trip into the world of smaller children and see what they thought of/would learn from Hax Attacks. And the results were surprising. Besides a little reading snafus (some of those words are big) my 9 year old nephew really grasped the concept of cyber security and why it is important. Plus… He thought it was so much fun. And my 5 year old niece? Well she just liked playing it. And sometimes, that’s all you can ask for. And don’t take my word for it. Xander has our final Hax Attacks video with those adorable little kiddos ready for you!
