[prMac.com] St. Petersburg, Florida - Chad Towns today introduces Jonah and the Whale, a faith-based application based on the biblical story of Jonah and the fish, for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. Designed specifically to leverage the iPhone's unique abilities, Jonah and the Whale is an enjoyable game that helps teach biblical truths to children.
Jonah & The Whale uses a third person jumper perspective where players become Jonah as he is launched from the whales mouth. Players attempt to travel as far as possible by hitting bubbles, hanging onto a bird, and getting help from friendly sea life. Jonah and the Whale is a collaborative effort between Chad Towns (creator of many popular iPhone apps), Mike Vallez (iPhone app reviewer), and Bryan Bowers (creator of many faith-based iPhone apps).
"We were excited to create this app." said Bryan Bowers, founder of Bowers Technologies. "We found very few Bible based iPhone games were available in the iTunes store. Many parents are looking for positive gaming experiences for their children and Jonah meets this need."
Jonah and the Whale has the following features:
* Helps improve hand and eye coordination
* Professionally narrated story of Jonah and Nineveh
* FaceBook integration
* High score submissions
"We are sure parents will appreciate this game. It is very fun to play and at the same time helps to teach children the store of Jonah" said Mike Vallez.
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.0 or later (iOS 4.0 Tested)
* 13.8 MB
