Monsters vs Robots

October 25, 2013

The Digital Media Diet

The ultimate showdown between monsters and robots!

From Amoraleite and created with Kwiksher software, this new app has a cute story and fun puzzles bundled into the app. The monsters and robots have gathered in the imagination of one young boy, for the final battle. When the "monster boss" arrives it's a showdown of epic proportions. Only the robot monkey knows the code, but young readers can enter it to call the robots over for a rumble!

Relevant interactive elements, like turning out the lights and tapping characters to see additional dialogue fill each of the pages of the short title. The enhancements are polished and intuitive, giving young readers an engaging and sort-of-scary experience appropriate for ages 4-8.

Simple page turn arrows appear after the necessary actions have been taken. There is no highlighting with the narration, which is in a thick Russian-sounding accent, but it really works well with this app ... in a Boris Badenov way (think Rocky & Bullwinkle). Two extras, full of puzzles with creative names for each character are also included for extended play and easy giggles. In-app selection for English or Portuguese also gives the app flexibility for language learning.

Recommended.
