Blizz Kid

Blizzard Kidzz is a series of "games" created by Blizzard Entertainment. Designed for a young audience, Blizzard Kidzz™ games strive to present children with not just the most epic, but also the most educational gaming experiences...ever.[1]

The games stem from the StarCraft, Diablo and Warcraft series—those listed before are from the first media.

GamesEdit

Zergling Teaches TypingEdit

"Skzzzt! Brnnchh! W’rkncacnter! Learn these and many other important zerg vocabulary words while also dramatically improving your words per minute and keystroke accuracy. (Ages 6 and up)"

Gameplay

Zergling Teaches Typing is supposedly a typing game, and a preview is available on the Blizzard website. The player is expected to type a nonsense zerg word, and if that happens, the zergling on the screen attacks and kills a Thor. Afterward a victory fireworks display of excessive length goes off as the point value increases and the zergling grows more and more frustrated. Eventually the level comes to an end and the zergling evolves a level, gaining wings. Only Act 1 is playable.[1]

Turbo Science VesselEdit

"Help captain Quasar and his crew maneuver through the Koprulu Sector by answering exciting questions about science! Learn how a warp drive works, how to tell if a star is about to go supernova, how to screen colonists for viruses, and more! (Ages 10 and up)"

Strat Blaster with Edmund DukeEdit

"Listen up cadet, the Dominion needs you to keep us all safe from those nasty space bugs called the zerg and those psionic creeps known as the protoss. In my training course, you will learn all about interstellar warfare, the finer points of politics, and how to patch up a downed battlecruiser. (Ages 12 and up)."

Guided by Edmund Duke, the cadet takes on various tasks. At least some of them involve complex mathamatical equations.<refname = "Young"/>

TriviaEdit

  • The games of the series often have real-world counterparts, but a number of other tidbits also exist:
    • Among the words of Zergling Teaches Typing is "w’rkncacnter!" The W'rkncacnter is an entity from the Marathon series.
    • Turbo Science Vessel displays a supercarrier on its cover art rather than a science vessel. Additionally, its description references many of the events in Wings of Liberty—a star going supernova harkens back to the fate of Typhon XI, whereas the screening of colonists for viruses is a reference to the colonists of Agria.
    • Strat Blaster with Edmund Duke is a reference to the real-world Math Blaster series. Suffice to say, the equations involved in the former are much more complicated.
