Odd Squad Artifact Adventure Game for Kids Game Play Instructions
How to Play
Collect pieces for an artifact before your opponents do. Choose a set of commands to help your vehicle reach the artifact pieces you need.
Starting the Game
Select the play button on the bottom center corner of the welcome screen to begin.
Choose between single- and 2-player modes.
Pick which mobile unit faction to play.
The game has voiceover narration, which will serve as its tutorial.
Using the mouse, left click to select and navigate.
Tap on the screen with your fingers to navigate and select.
The central bar lets you add motion commands.
The button on the bottom left allows you to activate any of the powers you’ve collected.
The home button on the upper left corner returns you to the welcome screen.
The play button is located on the lower right corner of the screen.
To win the round, collect all three artifact pieces before your opponents do.
Pick a direct to go from the bottom of the screen, then select the play button.
Each move will take you one space at a time.
To change the direction of the move, select it until it shows the desired direction.
You can change the directions as many times as you like before hitting play.
The screen will show you the route you’ll be taking.
You can have up to five moves per turn.
Each time you collect an artifact fragment, the playing field changes.
If you occupy the same position as your opponent, your van will be bumped off to another part of the playing field.
Once you’ve collected all 3 of the pieces, move toward the artifact activation button to clear the stage.
In later levels, you can use the repeat button to move the van by the same pattern of steps twice.
If the repeat leads to a red spot that doesn’t work that is fine provided you reached the goal before running into the red spot.
You can find the repeat button at the right end corner of the move bar.
Hazards and power ups
Strewn across the later levels are obstacles
Jam rivers: You cannot cross these without rockets.
Tornados: These will knock you off course. Some tornadoes move, so it’s best to move away from them.
Rock candy: These will often block your only path and cannot be surmounted without drills.
Jam: You will get stuck in these, preventing you from using your remaining moves.
These are essential to crossing major obstacles like jam rivers and rock candy.
Rockets: Allows your van to fly over jam rivers and jam puddles.
Drill: Lets your van bust through rock candy.
You can switch between the power ups using the power button on the right.
Once you collect a power up on a level, you can play them throughout the game.
The single-player campaign consists of 3 stages.
Each stage must be won in sequence.
Take turns playing against a human opponent.
You will use the same controls.
You don’t need to use all your moves in a single turn, but it pays to do so.
Using up all your turns will help you bypass some of the obstacles before the manifest.
Often, it’s a choice between picking the shortest path and the safest one.
Safer paths are often longer, but are easier to cross if you don’t have the appropriate power.
It’s often better to take the shorter path and bear the penalty than to go the long way.
Whenever possible, collect the power up first.
Creating a repeating path will give you up to twice as many moves in a single turn.
If the path is clear, you can use the repeat option to get you to your goals faster.
If there are any obstacles in the way, make sure you activate them before pressing play.
The game is suited for children of all ages and for fans of the PBS series Odd Squad.
The game has no adult content.
