The "Amaze Me" Playground concept

The entrance to the game AMAZE ME is shown here. Kids began the chase , with one chasing after another . The chaser attempts to reach the one fleeing, tagging him out. Its a fun alternative exercise that promotes team building and community challenge. We produced the idea of this game in 2011 in the South side of Chicago

"River Jump"
       
     
"River Jump"

the idea our studio came up with in this game is simply to avoid the water blocks. This is an extended idea from the familiar HopScotch game.

The idea here is to extend and make the game floor more challenging, perhaps to where young boys can also be challenged as well.
