Convinced by TAIL
DANIEL: „At first I was excited because I am definitely bad. However - The training with TAIL is good: If I do it, I write more beautifully and better, make less mistakes!“
FRAU MALIC: „His teacher has noticed - in the last two weeks of practicing with the game - that he is better at school. Daniel takes more time to write. Everything is much more readable. At home, he is easier to follow the rules. He is now more willing to do what he is told.“
Mrs. Malic and son Daniel (8 years)
Frau Künzl: „After a year Isabel is just as enthusiastic as in the first week. What is the reason ?: The illustration is fantastic, heavenly and child-friendly. TAIL is very different from other computer games. By waiting to learn and acting at the right moment, the ability to concentrate is increased and the endurance put to the test.“
Isabel: „I like your game because the intro is funny and the background has interesting noises. The illustration fits the type of game it is! Can´t stop playing it because it is so much fun!! Thank you for sending it. P.S.: It should be a girl. Phil should be Philippa!“
