An animated quest game for children ages 3 and up
A small elephant plays hide-and-seek with his friends in the land of PumiLumi. The funny hidden animal friends invite the player on a discovery tour through different landscapes: a desert, a winter wonderland, an underwater world and a landscape of forest and meadows.
The colorfully large images can be explored by simply dragging them with the mouse.
Thanks to its simple visual language, this app can be played intuitively by little children.
At the start the small elephant presents four landscapes, each inviting the user to play. Each landscape chosen then presents a menu of the hidden animals to be found. When discovered and clicked, each animal friend comes out of its hiding place and makes adorable movements and amusing sounds. What a delight!
Each round of the game redistributes the hiding places anew within the different landscapes, keeping the game of seeking exciting and fun to explore.
This game develops a child's powers of observation, sense of logic and shape recognition.
The appealing illustrations and high-quality animations in this app were created by Elevision, an established animation studio who has already published the "LinguPingu" app, a very popular and successful educational foreign language-learning game for children.
