[prMac.com] Calgary, (AB) Canada - Hoping to show that not all robots are purely cold and mechanical, Thandros Media presents "Fun With Thandros," a playful new iPhone app featuring a fun-loving robot who is sure to thrill little ones and big kids alike. This delightful app features four classic games: Play, Maze Quest, Stories, and Twins.
Jeffrey Pierson, the creator of the characters featured in the app, worked with the programmers at Thandros Media and author Mike Jackson. The team understood that children love digital gaming and grasp it at a faster rate than anyone else, but for their first app wanted to incorporate a classic style and varied gameplay mode that many apps seemed to be lacking - and thus, "Fun With Thandros" was born.
"I first drew Thandros for my nephew," says Pierson, "and he really liked him, so I started to think about what he would act like, and who some of his friends could be. It was a lot of fun to come up with this world, and I'm looking forward to adding to it in the future."
The new app introduces kids and their parents to Thandros, a happy, friendly robot who loves to go on adventures and isn't afraid to undertake a quest or a challenge. The littlest tikes can enjoy meeting Thandros in the "Play" mode, in which they can tap on the robot and see how he reacts. The preschool set and older can choose "Stories," with their choices throughout the course of the tale affecting its ultimate outcome, or "Twins," a matching game that reinforces memory skills. Finally, big kids are sure to love "Maze Quest," which takes Thandros on a journey through simple to complex mazes in his efforts to halt the evil Professor Stouch's dastardly plans.
With its colorful, hand-drawn graphics, cheerful music, and exciting sound effects, "Fun With Thandros" is sure to provide hours of entertainment for children of all ages, while teaching them important lessons about sharing, hard-work, and determination.
