[prMac.com] Malmo, Sweden - Tales & Dice AB today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of Hanna & Henri - The Robot 1.0, their new interactive children's app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch devices. In Hanna & Henri - The Robot, children get to build a robot from everyday objects. The variations are many and the only limitation is the children's creativity. On the way they get to do educational elements like sorting fruit and choosing correct colors.
"When we created the first children's app about Hanna & Henri we already had plans on things we wanted to include in this", says Fredrik Sjolin, one of the creators of Hanna & Henri. "We wanted the children to experience the story from Hannas perspective. For them to be able to choose clothes, to dress Hanna and to follow her day, just as you were able to do with Henri in the first app. We also wanted to include an element where the children get to use more of their creative joy. It was then we decided that this app was going to be about building a robot."
The tale alternates between interactive moments and games, and is presented with a narrator and subtitles, as well as choose to have the narrative voice active or turned off. If it is turned off, text will be displayed and children can read it as a regular book. Users can choose English and Swedish as language.
"When we decided on the graphical design for Hanna & Henri, it was important for us to avoid the general stereotypes." says Christer Degerman, the illustrator of Hanna & Henri. "We have been able to up the quality of the illustrations a bit more this time. It is really fun to illustrate when the images get more interesting and alive."
