Zyrosky is a fun, multi-level switch accessible game that engages children with and without disabilities. It is very configurable to a users abilities and interests. Graphics are clear and sound is interesting. It is nice that kids who can only operate a single switch can easily play.ReviewForDev,
ZyroSky is a great app for those who are beginning to learn about switch use and engage in cause and effect play due to motor or cognitive difficulties. It is more age appropriate and sophisticated than any other beginning switch apps on the market for older kids. The settings are phenomenal – as you can grade the levels of both difficulty and sensory input to the child. This in itself will insure competency and motivation to continue playing.AppyMall,
