Monsters Band is an application for iPad and iPhone that includes 3 educational games aimed at children between 3 and 6 years of age. As well as playing and having fun, children can use this game to develop their observation, association, logic and memory skills, all the while stimulating their creative thinking and curiosity.
Monsters Band allows children to play the famous Memory game and solve various puzzles. They can also take part in a quiz about the characters that appear in the game. In order to answer correctly they must observe the characters’ physical traits, clothes or things that they are carrying.
Players receive points as they play, which help them unlock special stickers that are then saved in the sticker album.
As well as its playability, this easy, intuitive application also stands out due to its illustrations, sound effects, music and interactive potential. Children will love the big, colourful graphics. Each monster is unique and has been created taking into account aspects that children find familiar. The application is both comfortable and simple for children to use due to the size of the images, the effect that makes the buttons literally “sink,” and the concept of pressing the buttons without having to aim. The whole application has been carefully thought out and developed to stimulate children’s curiosity.
A further aspect of the game worth noting is the fact that players can register in order to collect points and receive their own stickers. Although this is not a requirement of the game, it is recommended for a better gaming experience. If a player does not register they will not accumulate points and therefore will not be able to receive special stickers.
The security and protection of users’ details have been taken into account in the development of this application. This is an important factor, especially for games aimed at children. All details introduced by users are saved solely on the device. There is no internet connection nor are details shared with other devices.
Monsters Band is available in 3 languages: English, Catalan and Spanish.
Monsters Band is free to download but users will only have access to the Memory game. In order to play the rest of the games, users must purchase the application “in-app” for €0.89.
Monsters Band is now available to download from the AppStore for all versions of iPad (including the new iPad mini) and all versions of iPhone: 3G, 4/4s, iPhone 5 and supports iOS 5 or later versions.
