[prMac.com] Stockholm, Sweden - Today Wombi released the app called The Pirate's Treasure. It's a classic memory game that has been adapted for iPhone and iPad. The majority of all apps for children are designed for kids to play alone. The Pirate's Treasure, on the other hand, has a traditional board game approach where two children will share one device and interact with each other.
"We wanted to try to create an app where the iPhone or the iPad is a game board for several players. In that sense it was obvious to develop a traditional board game such as a memory game. The technical features of the iPhone and the iPad allowed us to add animations and sound effects to this classic game, which in turn creates an entirely new game experience," says Markus Wedenborn, developer and Co-Founder of Wombi apps.
The game idea in The Pirate's Treasure - a memory game is simple: after several years of searching in the Caribbean the pirates have finally found Captain Blackbeard's hidden treasure-chest. But how are they going to divide the treasure? In a classic pirate duel of course - playing a game of memory. Players can chose between eight different pirate characters. Further, music, sound effects and animations contribute to create the perfect pirate atmosphere.
