Our examiner, Andy Robertson, first checked Assemble With Care 3 years ago. It was re-examined by Jo Robertson and updated 10 days ago.
This starts with a little girl who has a broken cassette deck. To fix things you use a variety of tools to unscrew, detach and disassemble each object. This starts as simply needing to replace empty batteries or re-spool tape back into a cassette but later becomes more complex with wires, electronic components and more disassembling.
But this isn't a test of your engineering skill, but how well you can pay attention to how something is made and how you can take it apart. You manipulate each element on the screen to completely disassemble and identify what's not working.
Each item you repair unlocks the precious memory held in the object. This might be a departed parent, a treasured memory or a message from someone far away. In doing this, the game hints at the tension between the things we can fix and the deeper things we cannot, without one eclipsing the other.
This is not yet rated by PEGI or ESRB, but has a 4+ rating on the Apple App store.
6+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game. The story telling and the disassembly and fixing of items is good for younger children. This does get more complex, but with a bit of adult help even the very young can enjoy this.
