[prMac.com] Singapore - Mezmedia is proud to announce Bamba Clock 1.0.0, the eleventh in the Bamba series of educational apps for kids. Aimed at kids four and older, Bamba Clock teaches children how to read an analog clock through pirate-themed adventure stories.
Kids learn to tell the time step-by-step, they start with the hour hand, then the minute hand and then finally both hands. Completing each clock challenge advances the story. In one such challenge, players unlock Captain Birdbeard's treasure chest by moving the hands of the clock to the correct time. Whenever the clock hands are moved, the time is told (narrated in English) so kids will learn what the minute and hour hands do. The goal is for kids to learn how to read the clock through fun and interactive play.
There are four adventures to choose from - players chase Captain Birdbeard across the Seven Seas, take part in a sea race through treacherous thunderstorms, hunt for hidden treasures on Mystery Island and finally test their mettle with the Clock Quiz.
At the start of every story, kids choose a companion character to join them on their adventures. Kids who are fans of the Bamba series will be familiar with these characters, such as Unidonk the Unicorn/Donkey or Ellie-Anne the Zombie Girl.
After completing each quest, kids will be rewarded with a surprise trophy. They can view all their rewards in the treasure room on board the pirate ship.
"Developing an app for kids to learn how to tell the time was very challenging. All those numbers can get really dull. I think that's why there aren't many good apps out in the market that can do this while retaining that fun factor. I like to think we've solved that problem with Bamba Clock."
"Besides, reading the clock is a very important skill all kids should get early. We know this too well, when as parents we are setting limits on play time for our children and so on," said John Ng, co-founder of Mezmedia.
