Saving Magic Is Here!
Climb tower walls, battle dragons, and save magic. Saving Magic is a family-friendly, free gaming app that combines fun and financial education for MSUFCU's youth members. Watch the trailer for a live example of the game!
In this app, players must complete different levels in each world to obtain magic coins. Once the players have earned enough magic coins they can withdraw them from their bank accounts and purchase clothing, lives, and spells for their characters, which will help in future levels and worlds.
Players will need to spend and save wisely to successfully beat the game. Remember, the more coins that are deposited into the player's bank account, the more interest is earned on the money. This encourages players to save and have more money in their bank accounts.
Saving Magic not only promotes good financial habits with savings tips included in each level, it also teaches players how to budget and manage their resources.
Give your child a jump start on their financial literacy!
Saving with Piggy is an educational game that helps young children (ages 2 to 5) learn about coins by feeding Piggy (aka, putting coins in the piggy bank). The game features Piggy, a lovable animated piggy bank that needs help saving coins.
Through four (4) levels of play, your child can:
learn the visual appearance of pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters.
learn the relative value of the coins (which is worth more or less).
learn the monetary value of each coin (e.g., a quarter is worth 25 cents).
learn the process of saving money.
Once your child masters the four (4) levels of the game, challenge them to play the endless mode and save as much money as possible to help reinforce the concepts learned in the game.
The game is 100% free to play (with no in-app purchases) for both AndroidTM and iOS.
The game is developed by the Games for Entertainment and Learning (GEL) Lab at Michigan State University and supported by the Michigan State University Federal Credit Union. Images courtesy of MSU's GEL Lab. Android is a trademark of Google Inc.
