Keep on reading to find out what’s so unique about this particular one!The major difference that sets this app apart from other social skill apps is that it is based around a cute alien character named Kloog who crash lands onto earth. The user will have fun helping Kloog “understand our social rules and customs and go on a journey with Kloog through our social world and learn with him as he interacts with people to get parts and fuel for his ship so he can return home.”The Story of Kloog:In a galaxy far, far away lies the planet of Zoogopholis. Kloog, one of its many inhabitants, lives a happy simple life, but dreams of visiting other galaxies and exploring other civilisations. While on one of his adventures, Kloog experiences engine trouble, and crash lands here on Earth.To his surprise, the people on this planet are anything but normal. They insist on greetings, speak in riddles, and have strange rules around interaction. While Kloog thinks this is all too weird, he needs the people of Earth to help him to repair his ship and get back to Zoogopholis.He soon realizes that if he’s to get home, he’ll need to be social to achieve this!Features of Mission Rescue Kloog:17 exciting quizzes to test understanding“Let’s discuss” sections throughout the app to confirm user’s understandingAbility to unlock funny bonus videos as they progress through appNew and innovative way to teach social skills17+ lesson plansApp is reward driven and encourages user to collect parts and fuel to help Kloog return homeFun and interactive350+ informational slidesAvailable on Google Play and App Store!To learn more about this app visit the app’s website!
