[prMac.com] Beijing, China - Super Jay, the new English division at Ruixin Online, an emerging developer focused on creating educational applications for mobile platforms, is pleased to announce the release of ABC Adventure HD: Front Yard Defense. This challenging children's game is a throwback to a classic, arcade-style game mixed with an innovative way to teach children about letters and words. Created specifically for iPad and geared towards children ages four to seven, ABC Adventure HD is a fun and fast paced alternative to the outdated song and drill method once used. Offered exclusively in the Game section of the iTunes App Store, this game will do more than educate, it will keep children entertained for hours.
On launch, ABC Adventure features 32 hand drawn High Definition levels in a familiar front yard setting which the child must defend from the sneaky robbers. This adventure game begins by teaching children the letters A through Z. As the level opens a female announcer prompts the child to pick words with a letter in the beginning, middle, or end of a word. During game play, children are able to whack the robbers back into their hidey-holes, scoring points and increasing their combos in order to make Rocket's ragin' combo bones rain from the sky. Available in the iTunes Game Center, kids can challenge their friends to beat their high scores, and win badges for their hard earned achievements. The game is also equipped with bonus chests and double scoring blue jays in later levels.
With two different game play options, ABC Adventure also teaches the difference between upper and lower case letters. Furthermore, this unique game starts introducing children to three letter words, builds vocabulary, as well as introduces them to the relationship between letters and words. The three star rating system also encourages repetition and continued learning as the child tries to achieve a high score, thus continuing his education and use of the selected letter. These basic concepts are important building blocks to teaching kids to read, write, and spell, however as the kids play this challenging finger-tapper, they will forget they are learning and simply have fun.
The beautiful and colorful graphics are drawn specifically to capture the attention and delight of children for extended periods of time. Clearly written prompts and vocal guidance will ensure the child will not get frustrated trying to follow the instructions, and the funny sound effects made by the robbers will keep children giggling even if they get an answer wrong. The intuitive main menu is easy to navigate, and will keep kids wanting to learn more and more. Ideal for any toddler, this game creates an easy platform for parents to teach their children letters in a fun and interactive way.
