[prMac.com] Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada - Tiny Diggers has remained on the top ten educational games category on the Mac App Store in many countries around the world. "Tiny Diggers has exceeded my expectations and is climbing steadily on the iPad and Mac computer," says Shane Whitehouse of TouchTilt Games. "Kids can't put the game down, and I even receive photos from parents of their kids playing the game which really makes my day. It has received a glowing review on the popular kids app site BestAppsForKids.org, a spot on the prestigious educational iPad portal app KinderTown and many other head-nods around the internet. Additionally, the release of Tiny Diggers has landed me some new and amazing opportunities as well."
In Tiny Diggers, the players get the choice of driving a dumptruck, excavator or bulldozer while learning about numbers, colours and shapes. The game is aimed at kids aged 2-5 with a heavy emphasis on fun. The obvious goal here is to learn the fundamentals of numbers, colours and shapes but the emphasis is to dig and dump dirt wherever your child wants and interact with the characters and objects. One exciting new feature that has been recently added to Tiny Diggers is the Tool Rewards system. Upon playing the game with each truck, the player will find tools like hammers, screwdrivers or tape measures. They can then place their found tools on a peg board and try to collect them all.
