In each of the 10 available levels, kids will learn about a different aspect of French culture, including words, basic language, landmarks, food, customs, famous French men and women, colors and numbers, and more! Each mission (level) consists of fun animations outlining the story line, a brief overview of the mission, flash cards of French terms, people, or items, and 2 sessions of memory where you get to test what you’ve learned. After successfully pairing up each French term to its best match, it’s time to go to battle with the aliens! Tap each alien in “Whack-A-Mole” style to defeat the alien king. Although created for children, Save Paris! is great for adults too! Try playing and then review everything you have both learned with your child to reinforce learning, or Save Paris! together!!
Prepare for battle! Aliens have invaded Paris and you must save the city by playing this action-packed adventure travel game.

- 10 different secret agent missions, each one with its own series of pair matching and “whack a Gloopy” games
- Mini travel guide featuring pictures and information about Paris (Mission #2)
- Multiplayer setting – Enter up to 4 players
Each mission contains a dossier filled with critical information required to defeat the Gloopies: facts about Paris and France; geography, historical landmarks, vocabulary, culture, food, and famous French people. Using this knowledge, you will play a memory matching game. If you are able to make the matches without your Gloop meter getting full, you will then face off against a wave of aliens in a fast paced Gloopy game. Once the aliens are defeated at the first level, the next level is unlocked and you will move on to the next mission. When the final mission (Mission #10) is successfully accomplished and General Gloop is defeated, you win! At this point you can choose to either go back and play the entire game again, or play any of the individual missions to improve your high scores.
