[prMac.com] Pleasantville, New York - Artgig Studio, a boutique interactive agency, today is pleased to announce the release of their new educational app, Alien Buddies, in the App Store. Alien Buddies, described by Apps For Homeschooling as an "incredibly fun way" to practice number names, number sequencing, letter names, shapes, and colors, is designed with a variety of games and play modes to suit a range of ages from Preschool to Kindergarten.
The games include:
* Matching: color, shape, letter and number recognition (audio and visual modes)
* Dot to Dot: sequential counting, fine motor skills
* Stickers: creative free play, fine motor skills (over 40 stickers and 8 landscapes)
In the visual and audio Matching games, the cast of cute and quirky characters will lead your child on an engaging journey to reinforce fundamental skills: recognizing colors, shapes, numbers and uppercase and lowercase letters.
The Dot to Dot game reinforces sequential counting with audio feedback and helps develop fine motor skills as your child completes each picture.
The Stickers activity builds learning confidence as kids are rewarded with stickers to create their own alien worlds.
Artgig President, Matthew Kicinski, says, "Alien Buddies continues the homegrown effort under our Artgig Apps brand to produce apps we want to make - for our children, and yours. Matching activities are pretty common for little kids but I think we've put a unique and quirky spin on these games that kids and parents will enjoy. And we've integrated the stickers activity so kids earn stickers as they play and then use those stickers in creative free play. We've seen children testing the game and coming back to it on their own, and that is extremely satisfying."
* iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad
* Requires iOS 3.2 or later
* 18.2 MB

Alien Buddies 1.0 is $1.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Education category.
