[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - Wombi is pleased to announce the releases of its new educational game for kids 4 and up on iPad, iPod, and iPhone devices. Wombi Detective is an interactive mystery with a wide range of possible outcomes. A series of different witnesses, thieves, crime scenes, and stolen objects create a versatile game that can be solved multiple times. Its stylish graphics and low-key music create a Noir atmosphere, and its playful gibberish language provides a universal feel for all gamers. No reading skills are required to play.
The game's primary character, Detective Walter MacSneak, is a stout little owl sporting a 1940's hat, a tie, and suspenders. He possesses all the owl-like wisdom one would want in a co-investigator, and he is a friendly companion in this mysterious setting.
Between its suspenseful music and illustrations, Wombi Detective creates a "dark and stormy" mood perfect for solving a mystery. It begins when Detective MacSneak's phone rings, and he finds out a robbery has taken place. By collecting enough clues, players follow the path to the culprit. However, it doesn't end there; the case isn't solved until the goods are located.
"This game challenges kids' logical thinking while still keeping it fun," explains Markus Wedenborn, one of the game creators.
It's up to the kids to solve the theft and locate the stolen goods. When they click on the application "notepad," they're able to interrogate witnesses to gather important clues. Using logic, they must narrow down the suspects based on witness descriptions. Players are then given the opportunity to guess who the thief really is. After exposing the guilty party, players locate the goods using flashlights, metal detectors, shovels, and more.
This game contains a range of scenarios and outcomes, so kids can play again and again without tiring of it. Its variety of elements allows room for exploration without getting repetitive.
