Designed for kids ages 7 to 10, Super Solvers: Midnight Rescue is a great educational game that aims at improving the kid's vocabulary. Gameplay is similar to Spellbound, but designed for older kids. Morty Maxwell, the master of mischief, is up to his old tricks again, and this time the Shady Glen School is the target of his outlandish plot. Armed with paint that turns things invisible and five robot paintbrushes, he's trying to erase the school, and you only have until midnight to stop him.

Kids will need to hunt for clues and collect evidence to determine which of the robots is really the Master of Mischief in disguise. With more than 200 reading selections, including letters, diaries, and children's classics, and more than 400 questions, Midnight Rescue offers thousands of unique playthroughs. There are also on-screen definitions and pronunciations of more than 500 words to help build vocabulary. In addition to building vocabulary, the game also helps kids develop important comprehension skills, such as gleaning the main ideas, recalling key facts, and deductive thinking. Kids must gather, organize, and analyze information, and finally draw well-founded conclusions in order to win. Midnight Rescue is definitely a masterpiece of its kind, and a must-have. Two thumbs up!
