Rush Hour


This is the classic problem solving game brought to a tablet.  It is another example of technology actually improving on the original game – no more picking up each car and lorry and physically moving them, just swipe them aside!  There are other alternatives available which also follow a similar format, so it’s worth checking them out.  The game involves moving traffic out of the way so that you can move the red car off the grid.  Each set up is different and involves planning ahead and considering the most effecient way of achieving your goal.  This is a task you can set individual children to try to beat each other, or as a warm up for a session of problem solving!  There is a free option available too.  The prices for the full version vary slightly between Apple and Android.
