[prMac.com] Champaign, Illinois - One year and five titles after their first app release, Spinlight Studio today is pleased to announce a major update of the game that started it all. Swapsies 2.0 - now a plus app built for iPad and iPhone/iPod touch - was officially released to the iTunes App Store on Sunday. With two new occupations. And a whole lot of extra fun.
Pilot and baker have now officially been added to the original lineup of occupations, joining a police officer, firefighter, astronaut and five other jobs that fascinate little learners. Just like the original game, players can customize their character, and switch hats, shirts and pants to create everything from a doctor to a "Pi-ranch-onaut." But now, every real-world match unlocks a fun activity, adding a whole new dimension for adventurous tots, whether they're flying a plane, sorting cookies or putting cattle back in their pen.
In addition to the new characters and activities, Swapsies has also been expanded with a whole new quiz feature with bonus rounds designed to keep kids engaged while developing their empirical learning skills. Perfect for tots and preschoolers, Swapsies 2.0 features:
* 10 different occupations
* Six customizable characters (three girls/three boys)
* Thousands of possible combinations
* A fun activity for each occupation
* An interactive quiz mode with bonus round questions
* Accomplishment tracking
* Intuitive navigation
* Reward sounds to create positive re-enforcement and encouragement
* Retina screen support for iPhone and iPod touch
* Large buttons for small fingers
*iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, 3/4G iPod touch and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.0 or later
