Windows 8 Game To Entertain Kids: Toca Boo

Toca Boo is a cute little game for kids which will keep them busy. The game is designed specifically with an intention in mind to be as unobtrusive as possible and in the game, you play as Toca Boca, the lovable little ghost whose only job is to scare away as many people as is possible. You can also click on objects to interact with them, and the popularity of this game is quickly growing on the App Store because of its ruggedly simple controls and great connection with kids of all ages. The game has an average of 4 star rating out of 5 which is pretty neat given that it was only released a few days back, and has also been featured on the Windows App Store. The cute little Toca Boca is a very lovable character indeed, and it’s actually pretty fun to watch him scare the people who then run away while the adorable Toca Boca has a good laugh!

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.

Toca Boo Main 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.

Toca Boo Scare people

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!

Toca Boo Listening for sound

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.
