Starting the game
You can start the hum kids game by choosing a world after tapping the Play Button.

The play screen is divided in two parts: the upper part of the screen displays the image captured by the front camera, the lower part of the screen displays the 3D jaws and the cavity monsters to be brushed away.
Your children will be guided to brush 16 zones. When the game starts, the active zone you have to brush will be highlighted with a cavity monster. The front-facing camera identifies the hum kids toothbrush connector dots and the child’s face to detect whether they properly brush the right zone, and provides suggestions on the brushing technique.
Brush to defeat the monster!
When you brush too fast, a turtle will show up to guide you to brush slower. Alternatively, if you’re brushing too slow, a rabbit will appear to direct you to speed up.
