App description: Numberlys presents a fanciful depiction of the origins of the alphabet and is the newest interactive epic from Moonbot Studios, the creators of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore. Numberlys is a story App celebration of the early fantasy epics King Kong, Metropolis and Flash Gordon with a dollop of the Marx Brothers, a splash of the Fleischer Studios technicolor Superman and a little bit of the 1939 New York Worlds Fair.

Numberlys is huge in scope. It's an adventure! A mystery! A game! And a story!

It's a new way to entertain, learn and rediscover our storytelling "golden age".

Love the graphics and premise for the story.

I'm curious how much game-play there is, compared to story-telling.

It's not a game. There are bits and pieces of "minigames" in there, but they're not many and to call them games is kind of generous - since you can't actually fail. This is an interactive book (and really a childrens book - though of the kind where parents will enjoy it equally) - and if you know that going into it, I'm sure you will love it.

You are right. The App is in the Entertainment Section while i thought that it was listed in the Game Section. It still does have those Frame Rate Issue and the Length of the Gameplay overall are just killing the hole thing.

Nope. Just found it in the US app store on both my iPad and iPhone.
