Tap and move the objects to place on the building square. By adjusting, pinching, and swiping, you can change perspective, move, and zoom. Once you've added enough to the scene, you are ready to watch it in motion from the perspective of Pango characters. Then use the photo icon take and save photos from the perspective of your characters in the scenes.
IS IT ANY GOOD?
Kids who love African animals will enjoy creating picturesque scenes of safari lands and watching the animals move around the landscape. Pango Build Safari is loaded with options for different landscape flora and fauna, rugged vehicles and campsite supplies, and even fencing for kids to make their very own wildlife sanctuary. Since there's no formal tutorial or many tips on how to build on Pango Build Safari, younger kids may become frustrated if they've never played with an open-ended building game like this before. But if kids explore the tools and experiment with the options, they'll likely be able to figure it out quickly, as the user interface is simple and intuitive. The most surprising part of Pango Build Safari for many kids may be viewing it from a first-person perspective of a Pango character after they've built a scene. It's enchanting to watch your scene spring to life and then take photos of the animals in action.
