6 of Maxis' Best Games - Just for Kids!
Sim Park: Create your own Living Park Filled with Wildlife, Plants &
SimPark is the only game where kids create and run their
own flowering, buzzing, chirping, roaring park. Your young rangers choose from
a forest full of plants and animals to fill their living and evolving
ecosystems. Kids can add picnic tables and slides to attract humans. But watch
out - humans aren't the tidiest animals around. You'll see that as kids' parks
stir with life, their interest in nature blossoms.
Sim Tunes: The
bug-crawling, music making, picture painting software!
Sim Tunes is the
only creativity software that allows kids to make their own "musical pictures."
Just select and draw from the color palette - each color corresponds to a
different musical note. Then watch and listen as the quartet of animated Bugz
dance around the screen, triggering bursts of light and sound each time they
pass over a different colored dot or line. String the colors together to create
Town: The Original City Simulator.
SimTown puts kids
in charge of building their own dream towns by choosing from a colorful variety
of houses, businesses, and parks, while learning how to balance budgets and
natural resources. Kids design their own character and decide what they like to
do, eat and say. SimTown is open-ended, so new surprises pop up on Main Street
The Electronic Ant Colony.
Ants. You've shared your food, your home
and your planet with them. You've stepped on them, sprayed them, cursed them
and bombed them. Now you can be them. Based on real ant biology and behavior,
SimAnt gives you the experience of life as an ant: fight for queen and colony;
defend your home from deadly predators; face menacing hordes of enemy ants;
invade the homes of humans; endure the dangers of insecticide poisoning;
reproduce to make more ants.
Safari: Create and Explore your own African safari park and
Sim Safari brings Africa to you! Imagine yourself in rugged bush
country, peering through binoculars at vast herds of elephants, zebras and
lions. Choose from exotic plants and wildlife to create your own safari park.
