Blaze Obstacle Course is a fun game that features the popular NickJr character of the same name. This scroller includes twenty different courses in four environments: air, land, water surface, and underwater. Players race through the levels collecting power ups to increase their performance as they avoid obstacles and collect as many flags as possible. Although the game play is basic, the app still includes a hands-on tutorial at the beginning so players know how to navigate the environments and what the various power-ups do.

In moderation, these types of games can be helpful for visual tracking, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor control.
