[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - High-up in the virtual jungle ten giggly gorillas are swinging in the trees, putting on a show for the cheeky chimpanzees in Wasabi Productions' latest release, Ten Giggle Gorillas. Transporting readers to a fun and laughter filled world this innovative interactive book for iPad combines charming storytelling and animated characters with user interactions and corresponding decision making.
As the story unfolds readers must use the iPad touch screen to tickle the appropriate swinging gorilla based on clues contained within the accompanying text. Each tickle results in one of over 100 unique interactions and animations that not only indicate if the correct gorilla was chosen, but also reveal the distinct and quirky personalities of each of the tree-top characters. Tickle the correct gorilla and they will jump and dive from the trees, laughing as they go and a quick swipe to the next page will offer a new clue as to whom to tickle next - with a final twist awaiting a successful tickle of the tenth gorilla.
Optional voice-over narration allows the story to be read aloud in a soothing and distinctive style, offering additional entertainment as well as assisting the improvement of reading skills for younger gorilla ticklers. Movie-style animations and cheeky touch-activated dialogue ensure the story can be repeated time-and- time again, whilst a monkey memory game offers an additional challenge within the same jungle inspired world.
Respected US reviewer DigitalStorytime wrote that Wasabipro's Larry Lizard series of books "Really set the standard for truly original and innovative use of the medium."
"Ten Giggly Gorillas in an enchanting interactive iPad book that combines storytelling and narration with movie-style cartoon animation and characters." commented Graham Nunn of Wasabi Productions. "Readers must follow the story to determine which gorilla to tickle, all brought to life with illustrations by award-winning artist Kim Neale in an interactive book that children and adults will love to read together."
