Football Game With New Tournament Mode Now Available

One of the really popular apps with the children on WizeFloor is definitely the Football game. The game can sometimes run for hours on end with children taking turns playing against each other.

We have thought about how we can improve the game to make it even better. So today we are pleased to release a new update for the Football game with some new exciting features.

Tournament

All active cloud subscribers now have access to the new tournament game mode. The tournament game mode allows four or eight players to engage in a knockout style competition. When the game starts the players are greeted by the new VS screen showing the teams participating in the game.

VS

If a match ends in a draw the game will be settled by a Golden Goal where the player who scores the next goal wins. Last team standing gets the trophy!

As always we provide ample opportunity for customization. You can, for example, create your own team and choose your clubs logo. We hope you will enjoy the update!

WizeFloor Used by School Children to Develop Apps for Daycare Children

In a daycare center in Odense in Denmark, the benefits of their WizeFloor are twofold. Here, fifth grade students from a nearby school in Paarup have learned to develop digital app games for children in daycare, so the younger children can learn about right and left, colours and animals through play and movement.

To develop an app is mainly reserved for people with a background in information technology - or at least just for adults. But this is not the case at the school, where pupils from the fifth grade have successfully developed an app for the daycare children’s WizeFloor.

New Update With Improved Versions of Puzzle, Categories and Piano

We are pleased to announce a new update to the WizeFloor software. This version focuses on improving the Puzzle, Categories and Piano applications with new features.

Puzzle

Puzzle

The Puzzle game is one of our most popular games and we have added several new features in this version. Feedback on selection of puzzle pieces has been improved and a new setting to slow down the selection of the pieces has been implemented (e.g. for children with special needs and elderly). Multiple puzzle images can be included in the same tile and be selected randomly when playing. Background music from a file or YouTube is now also supported. Finally it is possible to compete against other groups on the scoreboard.

Categories

Categorize

The Categories app is our collaborative categorisation app that can be used for many different purposes such as language training, math and geography to name a few. This version has an entirely new appearance and interface. New features such as putting pictures on the category fields and playing background music from a file or YouTube have also been implemented. This makes it possible to use the app with younger children who are not strong readers yet. We are looking forward to see how you will use it when creating new tiles.

Piano

Piano

The Piano has been updated with a new form of interaction and feedback when hitting the keys. The keys do not repeat as fast as previously which results in a smoother experience when playing on the piano "Big" style. A history of previous notes are now displayed in the music sheet on top of the piano so you can learn some musical theory while having fun playing.

Other

As usual we have made many other changes in the software.

  • The interaction in the Scratch app has been improved.
  • We have fixed a problem with touch screens in the Rubber Ducks app.
  • Improved camera software with support for new cameras.
  • Updates are now downloaded automatically in the background.
  • Various improvements of offline mode.
  • All apps are included in one installer.
  • "Enter code to unlock" is available again for ceiling installations.

Installation
