Not an easy game for young kids. If you are tired of games that are easy to beat this may be the game for you! This game was a challenge to me and I'm an adult. The graphics are really cool too.

Awkward strategy game
Good visuals, awkward play.
The butterflies in the first level do not follow the leader, get distracted (by the wind pattern? - hard to tell). Impossible to control more than one third of the group; what governs the behavior of the other two thirds is anybody's guess.
It might get better later on (?) Will not spend any more time on it though, too frustrating.

This game is Migrating straight to my trash bin!
Nat Geo has put out 1 or 2 OK games, this one however, is the worst games I've ever played on BF! Each level has 4 parts of the country to Migrate through, but it all looks the same. Each of the 4 areas has 4 waves of the migrating "animals" to reach the finish line. You make yellow "Leaders" for them to follow, but the waves don't come all at once. If you have 20.. 5-6 might come out, and then 1 by itself that wanders off, no matter how long I waited flying a Leader back and forth at the start. So that 1 is a usually a goner. You fight wind current, or use them, but must time it or the birds eat you. Other bugs attack, but there is no HP or health reading, so you don't know when your butterfly/animal will die. This game is full of bugs,(the PC kind and insects..if you hate spiders in a game, don't even try it!) horrible graphics, stressful and boring. While there is some mild thinking to do; this is more of a "Arcade/Action game, not a strategy one.
1) If you have any hand/eye, sight or hand problems, (I do) this game is not only bad, it's painfull! 2 hours after the trial I'm still hurting.
2) Scoring is pointless, and along with getting them to the finish line, is the main goal of the game. Your goal is to get your animal (or the 1st lvel, butterflies) from one side to the other, without other bad bugs, birds, animals etc killing them. Each level ( I played 33 before trial was up) I lost 1/4 of my butterfly's, but it gave me a "Perfect" score and said I saved 100% of them? OooooooK.
Even for players that like fast paced clicking, this game will be far to dull for all it requires.
I do NOT reccommend this game at all. Not even for free. If I could give it no stars I would. Stick to TV show Nat Geo, your games could be great, but like this one, somehow just end up boring and you seem to listen to nothing us players want.
