This innovative new iPad app offers stunning graphics, exciting interactions, adaptive difficulty, and immersive gameplay. In Ansel and Clair’s Adventures in Africa, embark on an amazing African journey to explore three interactive locales: the Nile Valley, Sahara Desert and the Serengeti Plains. Your friendly travel companions, designed specifically for touch screen devices, are Ansel, an intergalactic travel photographer, and Clair, a robot with an encyclopedic knowledge of well, everything. They are on a mission to take photographs and document their journey, but they cannot do it alone and need help. In each locale, your child can take photographs of things they have learned and arrange them in a travel log. Do not forget to help Ansel by finding him food to eat when he is hungry, lighting a fire to keep him warm, or saving him when he is in trouble. There are puzzles and games such as navigating the chambers of the pyramids to find actual pyramid artifacts “hidden treasure”. There are things to learn about animals, plants, places, and landmarks such as wildebeest migration, frog metamorphosis, papyrus plants, temperature extremes in the Sahara, snowfall on Mount Kilimanjaro and much more. In summary, this app will provide hours of entertainment for children, and also educate them.
