GBA game for a 5 or 6 year old


Recommended Posts

I have a 5 year old son so I have some recommendations:


Kirby and the Amazing Mirror

The Incredibles

Finding Nemo

Ice Age

Brother Bear (Gamespot didn't even have a page for this game but it's a solid platform game)

Fairly OddParents Shadow Showdown

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2

Power Rangers Double-Pack (I believe it contains the Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder games on one cartrdige that were released separately for the GBA)


If I had to recommend one game it would probably be Kirby and the Amazing Mirror. It's not overly hard (e.g. there are no platform jumps where you have to land on a platform the size of a single pixel or be instantly killed), has alot of variety, and doesn't have much text so he can play it by himself. He's just learning to read so a game with alot of text in it usually results in alot of "Dad, what's this say?" The graphics are cute and colorful too.


As far as some of the Gamespot reviews I linked to go, you have to remember that they are reviewed by adult professional gamers. What may appeal to a 5 or 6 year old, may not appeal to an adult so I would keep that in mind when reading the reviews.


I hope that's helpful.
