[prMac.com] Brisbane, Australia - Independent developer Blue Quoll Digital has announced that its Puss in Boots, The Great Adventure for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch is now available on the App Store. This interactive picture book app, recommended for children ages 2+ reinvents and rejuvenates this timeless classic, with the charm, inventiveness and artistic value that characterizes Blue Quoll productions.
Children can read the story themselves or have it read by the narrators, they can also interact with each page of the story by tapping on the illustrations and revealing sounds, popup speech balloons and character voices.
"We have extended notably the functionality of the PopUp Tap and discover feature compared to our previous app, Mr Wolf and the Ginger Cupcakes" says Vincenzo Pignatelli, Artistic Director and Founder of Blue Quoll Digital. "We made sure it is worth exploring each page for children as they get rewarded both visually and acoustically by a popping balloon, a sound or the voice of characters mumbling, grunting and cheering".
"It is getting increasingly difficult nowadays to ignite media attention using press releases for book apps, as expression such as 'gorgeous illustrations' or 'enchanting narration' are overused and are loosing their meaning" says Lucia Masciullo, Illustrator of the book. "However our stories are truly beautiful as illustrations are hand crafted using traditional techniques and story-lines are unique yet still tied to a heart warming tradition".
Puss in Boots, the Great Adventure app follows the release of top selling in Italy, Apple-featured, Mr Wolf and the Ginger Cupcakes in May 2011 and it's available in English, Italian, German, Spanish and French.
