Happy Birthday Jules Verne! February 8 is Mr Verne's birthday and today we have treasure of an app for you to celebrate. 20.000 Leagues Under the Sea is a mashup of the classic novel and a hidden object game. As the interactive story progresses, objects need to be found, as well as various other mini-games completed. Very excellently done, with amazing graphics and true-to-the-text storytelling, this app will captivate older kids and adults. There is a free lite version to give you a taste of what you are in for when you purchase this high definition app.
What's free: the beginning of the story, a handful of mini-games
What's not free: the rest of the story, a lot more mini-games
FREE Lite Version $1.99 Full Version

This developer has taken a range of classic novels and created awesome apps that immerse children into the story with amazing interactive elements. Less of a book app and more of a game app with a smattering of storytelling, children are introduced to the likes of 20.000 Leagues Under the Sea, Around the World in 80 Days, The Time Machine and more. This app follows the exploits of Professor Aronnax, his shipwreck and subsequent "rescue" by Captain Nemo on his submarine, Nautilus. Along the way, there are hidden object scenes, games that involve hand-eye coordination and following instructions, puzzles, match-three and more.
The lite version takes the player all the way up to the point where Professor Aronnax meets Captain Nemo for dinner. The full version continues on and the hidden object scenes often turn into a test of comprehension with the player looking for books about "astronomy, geology, biology, calligraphy, architecture" etc. There are helps and hints which is good as I found the scenes a bit dark sometimes. And there is an end of game bonus when the player finally reaches the end. Definitely worth downloading, for the price of a Krispy Kreme, this is an absolutely fabulous app.
