[prMac.com] Canberra, Australia - Ricky Vuckovic today is proud to announce that Pogg, an iPhone/iTouch game for kids has been approved by Apple and is now available to buy on iTunes and the App Store. Pogg is a cute game for kids aged 1-8. It stars Pogg, a little green alien who can do all sorts of things: run, hop, sing, go to the moon, and heaps more.
There are 2 modes in Pogg:
Spelling Mode lets you freely type words into the "What should Pogg do now?" box, encouraging kids to experiment with spelling basic words, and showing short movie clips of Pogg doing that action (e.g. typing "hat" results in a short movie of Pogg putting on a hat). There is also a Random button that randomly plays any of the movie clips for quick entertainment (Ricky's 15 month old son gets a lot of enjoyment out of this button).
Picture Mode presents all of the Pogg animations as little icons that you can play by simply touching the picture. This works well for kids too young to spell words, and also acts as a dictionary of the different things that Pogg can do.
The actions are all short high quality movie sequences with a blend of 3D animation and 2D props and backgrounds, each with sound effects and original music composition. Pogg currently has 30 different movie sequences covered by a spelling dictionary of around 300 word/phrase combinations. With enough support, Ricky plans to release many extra animations as free upgrades to everybody who purchases Pogg.
* iPhone or iPod Touch 2.1 or later
Pricing and Availability:
Cute, clean, fun. Pogg 1.0 is only $0.99 (USD) and available exclusively through the App Store.
