guess the animal


Guess the Animal is an educational, trivia-style skill developed by Spitfire Game Studios LLC. Though it is a skill ideal for kids, it enhances both kids’ and adults’ knowledge about animals and their habitat. This fun yet scholastic game attempts to enlighten curious minds and motivate them with substantial facts that are often overlooked in the midst of oceanic facts. The Alexa-powered interactive game seems specially crafted for individuals and families who are likely to enjoy playing while being intellectually illuminated.

The gameplay kickstarts with a brief description of animals, one at a time with information on where these animals live. Each question contains a precise clue towards the end leading the player to identify the animal correctly. Overall, seasoned questions surrounding a series of animals are added to the skill to pique the interest of players and prod them to guess rightly based on the given clues; and those who get the most correct are sure to win the game. An interesting pick of 5 questions in one session is one of the standouts of this voice application. Another motivating factor is that when the player answers wrongly the skill renders the correct answer followed by the score before moving on to the next question in the series. Moreover, the informative questions seem purposed to edify young and growing minds alike about different animals within the context of the natural environment surrounding them. The voice app also offers players the provision to purchase the ‘animal pack’ to gain access to additional questions featuring more animals. The openness of the skill’s creators to keep adding more animals is yet another advantage. All the more, the option to repeat the question along with the clues adds to the beneficial aspect of the skill. Well, that being said, there seem to be a few downsides that could let down the players at times. One of the significant downers is the limited access to free questions players are endowed with. Also, the skill boasts of a variety of animal packs to select from, yet players are deprived of options to choose from, as a result, only one animal pack can be purchased- Australia animal pack. Last but not least, the misalignment of the display images with the streaming question causes players to feel confused when giving answers. The picture of the animal that corresponds to the correct answer of the previously relayed question is displayed alongside the clues to the next question.

The VOGO Voice team scores this skill 4.4 out of 5 stars based on our rating system. Yet, you’ll have to try for yourself and see if it is a truly fun-driven educational voice app that will help your kids to broaden their knowledge of a variety of animals. Bear in mind to get the most correct to win the game. So why not try out the skill and see if it offers your kids the enriching experience you had anticipated for them.
