Nosy Crow have just launched a brand new fairy tale app, Jack and the Beanstalk, out now on the App Store, claiming it’s their best one yet, blurring the distinction between story and game more than ever before to create a completely new kind of reading experience for children: Jack and the Beanstalk is where on-screen gaming and reading meet.
Nosy Crow say:
Conceived and created with reading for pleasure at its heart, Jack and the Beanstalk rewards the reader’s success with more story, and encourages repeat play with endless variety. You can play games in different rooms of the giant’s castle, and collect keys to unlock more of the story – and every so often, Jack meets the sleeping giant, and your success (or failure) at collecting his treasure determines the outcome of the whole story.
It’s a brilliant re-telling of the story that contains all the familiar elements that everyone knows and love – along with lots of imaginative new features.
