[prMac.com] Madrid Spain - Technology company Virtway and the popular toy producer Famosa are proud to announce the release of Pinypon Play World 1.0, for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch devices. Pinypon Play World allows children to construct their own Pinypon World with their friends or family (in a collaborative way), while they chat in virtual-space as if they were using Skype. It has been created by the technology company Virtway and the popular toy producer Famosa.
The game (a one-time purchase with no additional costs), has met with great success after it was released in Spain, and has achieved good positions in the rankings charts:
* 1st Position in Games - Education
* 1st Position in Games - Family
* 1st Position in Games general category
* 1st Position overall in Spain on iPad
* 8th Position overall in Spain on iPhone
One of the characteristics that makes the game stand out is that children can construct their own Pinypon World with their friends or family (in a collaborative way), while they chat in virtual-space as if they were using Skype. Virtway's virtual-world technology allows users to talk among themselves as if they were in the real world. Sound attunes to proximity and, if users are playing together, they can talk with any number of people at the same time.
Children can invite friends to partake in their gaming experience with prior confirmation from their parents, which is enabled through a parental control password. For parents who spend a lot of time away from home, this offers a fantastic opportunity to play with your kids "online" and talk with them while building an amazing world together.
The game's ambiance is derived from the aesthetics of the Pinypon dolls. Players can construct buildings using Pinypon houses such as the Villa or the Burger and decorate them with various elements such as furniture, household items, etc. Also you have complete freedom to use the traditional Minecraft-style blocks along with any of the new blocks with alternative forms.
Another innovation introduced by Virtway is the option of using physical objects such as balls to help augment your child's creativity. We have seen groups of kids who have created a football field with blocks and who play from one side of the field to the other with the intention of scoring a goal!
Virtway is preparing new updates that will include new game mechanics and new Pinypon objects that will delight children. In education centers that utilize Apple technology, the game is available with a 50% discount.
