Numberlys is the latest iPad (and iOS) app from Moonbot Studios. Moonbot Studios are the creators of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore – my choice for the best iPad app of the year in our list of Best iPad Apps of 2011.
So needless to say I had huge interest in this new app as soon as I saw it released. Here’s a little Intro on the app, straight from its App Store page:
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 World’s 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".
I’ve only just installed the app a short while ago and had a quick glance through its opening pages. As a lightning first impression, the app looks amazing and unique. The imagery and animation are gripping already. I’m going to leave it alone now and explore it properly with my daughter this evening – but I have a feeling this is going to be another big hit for Moonbot Studios.
Here’s an App Store link for Numberlys; it’s priced at $5.99 – and please not it requires iOS 5.
