Roxie's a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure is an interactive journey and an exciting combination of a book and a game that the whole family can enjoy.

Along the way, search for letters, penguins, numbers, ice cream trucks and lots of other cool surprises.

The art was created by Roxie Munro, in conjunction with OCG Studios' creative team. The American author/illustrator of 35 children's books, including five on mazes, Roxie's books have been translated into many languages. She has received numerous awards for her work including the "New York Times" Best illustrated award, "Best Children's Book of the Year (TIME Magazine), and many starred reviews.
On the OCG Studios website you can see how this beautiful and a-MAZE-ing app was created, starting from scratch with the first hand-drawn sketches in the 'making of the app'.
OCG Studios' mission is to develop and design beautiful and interactive apps. Roxie's a-MAZE-ing Vacation Adventure is the first app we've released but we're planning to make many more beautiful apps in the future.
Mazes are educational tools which are fun and educational at the same time! They help children learn decision-making and critical thinking skills, and make them think ahead and plan steps in advance. Mazes teach alternative ways to solve problems and judge spatial relationships. For younger children, mazes help develop fine motor skills; for older children, maneuvering through mazes helps improve handwriting. Researchers have proven that mazes are particularly suited for boys and reluctant readers. And they're fun!
This app requires no reading skills so which makes it suitable for children of all ages and nationalities.
