Nanny 911 is a Mac sim game for both parents and kids. This game will teach you how to behave as a mother, father or kid. To play this game is deceptively easy, however with more actions needed in higher levels, it can be challenging.
To play you begin by selecting your nanny who will not only advise you along the way, but will grade you after each level. When a parent is not acting appropriately, he/she will be outlined in red. For example if the mother should go and take a nap when the children are acting up, you click on the thumbs down button and then on the mother to change this behavior. Unfortunately she may not learn on the first click and you may need to discipline her more than once. This procedure is also true for praising a parent who may be doing a good deed. The parent will be in a green glow and you click on the thumbs up this time to let the parent know they are doing well. To discipline a child when that tot is up to some kind of mischief, you click on the parent button and then click on the child. If the parent is doing a good job talking to the child click on the thumbs up and then the parent. If the parent is yelling and in a red glow, click on the thumbs down to let him/her know. There are goals to meet such as cleaning and disciplining each day and night. In addition you will be given letter grades for how well you play.
If you should need a break, there are mini games in between some of the levels. One such game is a match play where you connect like objects in a chain to destroy. You will definitely need the break from the main game since it will get hectic and challenging as you get to the higher levels. The children are messy and undisciplined and the parents are lazy with bad habits like talking on the phone or napping during inappropriate times.
Nanny 911 is not a game for me. I could not wait until I finished this play. It reminded me of the sim plays like Baby Sitting Mania and Nanny Mania goes to Hollywood. The first I didn’t like, the other is good only because it had more of a story line. In Nanny 911 the parents are introduced but you didn’t feel warm and fuzzy towards them. Nanny does give reasonable advice and I can imagine some people will need it, but do you want to be scolded and graded by Nanny over and over again? Parental behavior modification, although tempting, is not for me. Some of you out there will get into this play so try it out for yourselves and have fun.
