Star Wars DroidWorks is an intellectually stimulating, viscerally captivating program. It provides a great introduction to scientific principles of energy, force and motion, simple machines, light and magnetism, plus a wealth of information about various metallic materials. In our testing, it appealed most to users with curiosity-driven patience and tenacity. One final note -- one parent reviewer noted that their 4 year-old son was captivated by the program, AND was able to successfully complete missions, after their requirements were read to him!
Although adults, even Star Wars fans like myself, could soon tire of Droid Works as the novelty wears off and we are forced to exercise our brains more than we like to in the evening, the younger school-going brigade will find it as fascinating as a virtual Meccano set that allows you to take on the Empire instead of the family pet. Very highly recommended for family computer sessions.
Gaining and applying this information for the purpose of successfully completing missions for the Rebel Alliance appears to be a motivational spoonful of sugar for the otherwise scientifically unmotivated or challenged individuals. For those already interested and fascinated by the field of science, this program is a useful tool for applying knowledge and motivating further learning in this area. And for anyone interested in science and/or Star Wars, this is a package worth exploring. I give it an exceptionally high 4 ½ out of 5 GiN Gems, because it presents an ingenious way to get children interested in otherwise vague science concepts, and is a heck of a lot of fun too.
DroidWorks combines puzzle solving, education and action into one fantastically enjoyable game. The many available droid bodies and parts allow players nearly infinite possibilities. This game is one you shouldn't miss.
Missions play out in a 3D world (which, sadly, doesn’t support 3D hardware.) Otherwise, a
is, in many ways, like a level of JEDI KNIGHT: there’s just a whole lot less killing.
Overall, DROIDWORKS is a fun diversion for Star Wars fans of all ages.
