The Little Mermaid - Now Available!

Game Collage is excited to announce a brand new iPad title available in the App Store - The Little Mermaid and Other Stories by H. C. Andersen.

Experience an interactive adventure that pushes the frontier of what literature can be - children and adults love it!

This magical book brings to life three of Hans Christian Andersen’s timeless classics.

• SWIM through the bottomless ocean with The Little Mermaid
• TRAVEL to distant kingdoms in Emperor’s New Clothes
• BEFRIEND a Happy Family celebrating life under a large burdock leaf

Enchant children and adults alike with stories that spill out of their pages. The book features close to 40 ANIMATED or INTERACTIVE elements across 65 beautifully ILLUSTRATED pages.

• SHOOT fireworks from an ancient ship
• CHASE crawling bugs across a page
• DREAM among enchanting fireflies
• LIGHT celebration lanterns

A full physics engine makes the pictures move with how you hold the book! Tastefully orchestrated sounds immerse you even deeper into the magical world. These stories will make you want to read them over and over again.

•• A free update coming soon - more sounds, more interaction, smoother graphics! ••

As always, thank you for your support! Your positive ratings and helpful suggestions keep this book alive.

Impressed by how polished this is. This is my first fairytale app, but if others are this impressive, it won't be our last. Will rate and review.
