[prMac.com] Lakewood Ranch, Florida - The Swedish-US based joint venture Happi Papi has announced Happi Reads 1.0, an iPhone version for the US market of its acclaimed iPad game. The game has sold extremely well in Sweden since it was launched about two months ago and has topped its App Store category for six weeks straight.
Happi Reads is a learn-to-read game where kids, just starting to read on their own, can practice their reading skills. The game idea is simple and straightforward. Children are presented with a word and three pictures. The object of the game is to read the word and then click on the corresponding picture. If the wrong picture is chosen, the series goes away and is replaced by a new one. The concept is both rewarding (you earn fruits you get to "eat" after each level) and easy enough for a child to start playing on its own right away.
"We are thrilled that the launch of our iPhone version in the US coincides with us topping the charts for both educational and kids games in Sweden" says Patrick Larson, Happi Papi's US co-founder. "Hopefully this will encourage a few more people to try it out." he concludes.
