Windows 8 Game To Entertain Kids: Toca Boo
Toca Boo is available for free from the Windows App Store.
The feature set of Toca Boo for Windows 8 and 8.1:
When you launch the game, you will see the following screen from where you can start the game by clicking on the circular play button at the center of the screen.
The adorable ghost with the glasses can be seen gliding along the main screen, and it actually does glide along the main screen and it’s not just a still image of him. This gives a very professional feel to the game. When the Play button is clicked at the center of the screen, you will be able to see the below screen, which is a dark room where your objective is to hide behind objects and scare the people as they walk in by suddenly appearing from behind the objects. Toca Boca goes BOO! when he sees people, who then run for their dear life and the cute Toca is seen having his fair share of giggles and laughs! You can see him scaring two girls in the screenshot below.
When someone approaches, Toca listens for approaching sound. This is a signal for you to actually go and hide behind objects. If you don’t do that, the people start running after you and it’s game over for you and the poor little Toca Boca!
You can see Toca listening for sounds in the screen above. This gesture appears automatically when someone approaches. You can make Toca Boca move around the rooms by clicking and dragging him to the desired locations. The mansion in which Toca resides is pretty big, so you get to explore a lot of rooms by dragging him from one room to another.
Below, you can see him in another room, scaring another lady!
The game is cute to say the least, and your little ones will definitely enjoy the same!
