Question never asked I just wonder how the researchers factor experience with game apps into this study. What ive read so far the research says younger people show better navigating skills than older players. Id expect that younger players would have more exprience. But researchers didnt ask my experience with game apps so they cannot know if my unfamiliarity is affecting my ability to navigate. Isnt that kind of important in this research? Or is something besides dementia research happening?
Sadly, like previous comments, this app started well but on about level 8 it became impossible to steer. No movement possible to right or left, so headlong into whatever was in it's path. The helpful comment re steering so as not to crash into icebergs didn't help!! I'm uninstalling this until improvements made, as this gives false info to research. Would also be useful as a Window app, as a bigger screen could improve results.
Who am I It's not enough info gathered about the players. 6 questions doesn't tell all about me. Just because i live in one country doesn't mean i born and grow there up there. Chosing English doesn't mean it's my first language, so might not understand that terminology. ...and many other factors such as played any games before, kind of phone its played on, any physical disabilities and eye sight... could affect the player ability and effectiveness. It's a good start but huge improvement needed.
Game won't run One Plus 3 I just get a black screen. I thought it had crashed the phone but it hadn't it just presents that screen so I can't contribute . It is a shame as my mother is early stage and I wanted to see how she coped.
What a lovely idea :D Slow to respond to tapping the screen meaning I keep crashing into icebergs on route to the sea creature. Also the maps feel quite different from the actual course. Once I'm on the course, allthough I've memorised the map I can't seem to navigate it very well, maybe I just need time to get used to the transition from map to course... Or maybe I'm just crap at navigating... Other than that, a fun, innovative and cleverly designed game with a very admirable and important purpose.
Great that it is helping dementia research Difficult to control the boat...I am not someone who plays these games as a rule. I find the navigation easy enough but the control of the boat not so much. How can the speed element due to cognitive ability be separated from the speed (or lack of) due to lack of skill using the controls?!
