Amelia and Terror of the Night Review
Introducing the iPad to your own children can be an interesting and difficult process
Introducing the iPad to your own children can be an interesting and difficult process. The chances are the little scamps will take the touchscreen aspect a little too literally and tap the life out of your precious screen.
Amelia and Terror of the Night seems to have contemplated this idea, as this interactive storybook is covered with touch points. Each page comes with a huge amount of objects and characters that users can bring to life in a tap. Each screen has marked areas that reveal hidden characters and objects, and the user’s desire to explore is only heightened by the dangled carrot of looking for hidden stars, that if successfully collected, can unlock an extra scene.
Combine all this interactivity with tilt controls and you have an iPad app that is brimming with life. Of course, it is also greatly helped by an engaging story and beautiful artwork.
There is no doubt that the story of Amelia and her friends’ quest into the forest will charm you and your children, and keep them occupied as they discover the hidden mini games and hunt stars. Moving through the interactive pages, you realise that this is the benchmark apps should all be aiming for – an engrossing story that is supported by smart animation and extra fun and games that help immerse the users in the world that is being presented to them.
Introduce this to your child’s bedtime for instant popularity.
