Game Review: ReachOut Orb

ReachOut Orb is an interactive game for teaching well-being to Year 9 and 10 students.

In the game, you enter a world where a negative force known that drained color from the world and you must return color to the world. So you go around the world solving this Pacman like puzzles, talking to people and solving their problems.

I like how it tries to teach well-being in a more metaphorical way. Especially when you are helping the people, it actually introduces techniques that you can apply to improve your well-being. The dialogues are also quite funny.

I also think the graphics is really cute and the game looks really polished.

The website also comes with additional resources for teachers.

What I like about ReachOut Orb?

I’m not really its target audience, but I still finished the game in one sitting and really enjoyed it. I think the idea behind such a game, paired with Teacher’s Resources, is really good to help students.
