[prMac.com] Melbourne, Australia - Hamson Design Group, through their MiBooks brand, are proud to announce the release of their second kids "choose your own adventure" book for iPhone and iPad; Coastal Quest 1.0.
In Coastal Quest, the reader is off on a trip to the beach, that soon becomes an important adventure. The reader will explore 9 different locations at the beach, such as the pier, the caves, the rockpools, the coral reef, the shipwreck and the surf, as they try to help a sea creature in distress.
Before reading Coastal Quest, the reader can enter their own name so that they become the central character in the book. For younger children, this is a fantastic feature that allows them to become even more immersed and interested in where the story goes. The reader is also able, at certain points during the book, to choose the direction the story takes (like the "Choose Your Own Adventure" format). This allows Coastal Quest to be different and fresh on subsequent readings.
Coastal Quest's interactive style engages children whilst they are reading, allowing them to touch and interact with various objects and sea creatures that provide rich visual and aural feedback to the reader.
The reader is also able to play a small mini-game mid way through the book, as they try to both feed fish to a large pod of dolphins and break their own high score.
Coastal Quest, as with the other books in the MiBooks brand, allows the reader to read the book themselves, or have it read to them with the aid of voiceover audio. This is perfect for some younger readers, who aren't yet ready to read the book themselves but still want to enjoy the adventure and fun of Coastal Quest.
