Maggie Simpson in The Force Awakened is a live action/adventure series about an ordinary kid from a stable family, who suddenly finds herself thrown into a strange and compelling world of magic, danger, and mystery. Maggie, a baby born to poor parents living on the streets, has been orphaned at birth. Following an accident in which her mother is killed, she was taken in by a kindly but dangerous orphanage. Maggie becomes a powerful Force-maker, able to both control and defeat a variety of supernatural forces in her path. She uses her amazing abilities for good, but when evil forces try to take over the village, she must use even more drastic measures to protect herself and everyone around her.
This video game (and its sequel) are designed as an interactive novel that children can follow from start to finish. A new element is introduced with each scene that repeats events in each episode. These are not cutouts per se but are still connected to the main plot. Some people have criticized the cartoon-like quality of some scenes, but most kids seem to find the experience just as entertaining as the book's storyline.
The storyline begins in the sleepy town of Hogsmeade, where Maggie lives with her grandmother and younger brother, Sam. The family is very poor, and Maggie's father works long hours at a post office. Maggie has always longed to help her elderly family members out, but she feels she lacks the ability to do so. In one instance, however, Maggie learns that she has the power to bring people back to life by using her imagination.
One of the things that sets this video game ahead of its competitors is the way it integrates the game into the storyline of the story line. Throughout the video game, players are taken on a journey through the fictional town of Hogsmeade, looking to locate an amulet that will allow her to visualize anything she wants. It is up to her to find the amulet and translate a mysterious symbol into the code to awaken the sleeping dragons. However, she must overcome obstacles along the way, as her imagination begins to run wild and she ends up missing several items along the way. As she embarks on her adventure, she must also battle a variety of ghostly enemies that are sent to haunt her while she searches for the lost object.
The game's difficulty varies depending on how much time the player has invested into playing the game. The better versions of the game let the player try before they proceed to the next level, while the same scenario is available for the lower quality versions of the game. The game is challenging because many of the non-previous characters that appear in the book are not recognizable faces to younger kids, making them slightly difficult to teach the characters how to interact with each other. Luckily, online flash game developers have recognized this challenge and make their games much more age appropriate, as many of the older players can easily find games that are suitable for their children without having to worry about understanding the characters or how to battle their enemies.
The popularity of the game has prompted numerous websites to come out with their own versions. However, it is important to note that these games are not meant to be entirely 'child' friendly, as many of the missions require the use of guns and other weapons that are, in some cases, too dangerous for younger children. However, the interactive nature of the game makes it a suitable addition to any home video game collection. It is also worth mentioning that the game is available for both iOS and Android mobile devices. What's more is that the game can be played for free, as the official trailer can be seen below.
