Gwen the Magic Nanny is a time management game developed by Teravision Games and published by Namco Networks. The player takes on the role of Gwen, a highly skilled babysitter who recently discovered that her family possesses magical abilities. She finds herself in a place called Fantasy Town, in which seven diverse families live. It is Gwen’s duty to assist the families in managing their respective households and taking care of their children. The player must go through 21 levels, as the families take up three levels each. Each level entails a wide variety of tasks including watching over the kids of the different families, preparing their meals and making sure they are fed on time, keeping them entertained, and putting them to sleep among others. Instead of bringing the children to specific needs stations in the house, the player must simply drag food to them, or drag each child to various rooms in the house, depending on what they want or need at the moment.
The levels become more challenging as the player progresses in the game, and s/he will have to manage more children in the seven households simultaneously. When the needs of a child are met, s/he gives off purple orbs, which the player must gather because these orbs activate Gwen’s magical powers. In addition, the player can use spells to help her fulfill various tasks including cooking meals for the children, pacify angry children, and even teleport through different rooms in a house.
