[prMac.com] Madrid, Spain – PlayToddlers today is pleased to announce the release of Shapes Builder 1.0, an amazing educational game for iPhone and iPad that introduces children, aged 4 to 7, to shapes in a unique and fun way. Shapes Builder is a colorful puzzle that shares some of the play mechanics of one of the most popular dissection puzzle game in the world, the classic Chinese “Tangram.” The gameplay is interesting, educational and fun: children must join geometric pieces to form a figure. Once they’ve completed the figure, a magic wand appears, and they need to follow a path with the magic wand, like doing a magic trick or spell. With the help of that magic, a real figure is revealed.
The game play is also intriguing, grasping the attention of children. It contains 6 themed islands with 36 different figures of animals, persons, buildings or vehicles, like a witch, a snake, a monkey, a plane or an Arabian palace. Every time they complete a figure, a path to the next figure appears, and since they don’t know which figure that is and what it represents, their natural curiosity is triggered allowing them to feel like explorers discovering those figures across the islands.
This one-of-a-kind combination of educational activities and fun makes Shapes Builder a unique game for iPhones and iPads. The idea was born after watching how the children play with building blocks, using their imagination to play with a square and a triangle block, like if it was a real house itself.
As Guillermo Fernandez, Co-Founder at PlayToddlers, explains “We developed this game because we wanted to induce that magic feeling which triggers when children build something with their hands, and combine it with the tablet and smartphone world.”
Sebastio Lopes, Creative Director at PlayToddlers, adds “The game takes advantage of the touch interface and the graphics effects those devices allow, thus making the experience much more spectacular, rewarding and appealing.”
The educational aspects of Shapes Builder are especially enhanced focusing on spatial recognition, differentiation of sizes, colors and rotations, and identification of geometric shapes.
