If your kid loves construction vehicles, he'll definitely love this game. You are presented different types of construction vehicles and some drawings which show how to control the vehicles and what you should do in order to complete each of the levels.
The design of the game is outstanding and the graphics are well-crafted and colorful, perfect for children and with engaging elements like toys as well. Each level has its own objective but the kids will easily get used to the type of gameplay and the actions they should do in order to complete the goal and finish the level with all the stars. The number of stars show the final score and each one of them represents an action done correctly.
As for the problems, we sometimes had some trouble trying to move the vehicles, the controls didn't work properly and it would be good to have a quickly tutorial set at the beginning of the game so as to acknowledge the basics.
The concept is interesting and the kid will love getting to know vehicles such as dump truck, dumper, tractor, grader and so on. Thematica is the developer of Cars in sandbox: construction, a game developed for Android and iOS and perfect for families to play together.
