[prMac.com] Madrid, Spain - isygames, an innovative new mobile application developer focused on creating educational games, has today announced the release of D. Bones for the iPad and iPad 2. This unique app gives kids ages seven and up the opportunity to learn about the human skeletal system via an entertaining puzzle game, knowledge quizzes, and supplemental information about every major human bone! Designed with vibrantly illustrated cartoon graphics, D. Bones encourages users to remember bone locations and advance their knowledge of the skeletal system as a whole in a dynamically engaging way. D. Bones is currently available for download on the Apple App Store for $1.99 in the Education category.
An educational gaming experience that supports both Spanish and English languages, D. Bones is comprised of three unique categories. As mentioned, the puzzle area of the app challenges young users to put together a cartoon skeleton by rotating different bones into their correct positions. Meanwhile, three included difficulty levels ensure that the puzzle stays accessible to any level of student. As an added entertaining bonus if players take too long to complete their game their skeletons will start getting covered in snow, which they'll need to clear off if they hope to finish!
Getting onto the more educationally focused portions of the app, kids are able to review information on all the major bones of the body one at a time via enlightening informational flash cards. Though not a full overview of the skeleton, these supporting texts provide users with a perfect mobile supplement while learning about the skeleton. Lastly, a visually immersive knowledge knowledge quiz is available to test how well users know the bones of the body. Complete with a beautiful soundtrack, an intuitive user friendly interface, and enough learning content to keep young kids engaged for hours on end, D. Bones is anything but a bare bones iOS experience!
