In Butterfly Hunt children are supposed to develop their skills trying to catch butterflies in the order defined by the game. To catch butterflies, the player should use the arrow and shift keys to make the game character move left or right, jump, and swing his net.
The game offers 4 modes: Arcade, Alphabet, Numeric and Super (the last two can be played in the registered version only). In the Arcade mode the game displays a butterfly of a certain color, a player has to find it among other butterflies and catch it. In Alphabet and Numeric modes butterflies have letters or numbers attached to them, and the game tells you which of them you should hunt for. In Numeric and Alphabet mode the player can select difficulty level. The Super mode is for older children who can already do the sums.
Catching a particular butterfly is not an easy task, as it keeps flitting among dozens of others. So playing the game will also help children train their reaction and speed.
I definitely liked that each next level is played in a different background, e.g. Green Hills, Country Seat, Aqua City – these are the three levels the trial version is limited to.
Some of the parents may not like that the game character is able to jump extraordinarily high and it does not look natural. Some players would probably like to have an opportunity to change the character.
The game is free to try, but the trial version is limited to three levels, with some of the modes being locked.
