Based on Colin Thiele's 1964 children’s book of the same name, Storm Boy takes place on the beaches of South Australia near the mouth of the Murray River, where the titular protagonist rescues orphaned pelican chicks, one of whom later becomes the child’s pet and faithful companion, Mr. Percival.
Experience an interactive retelling of the classic tale by taking control of both Storm Boy and Mr. Percival in key moments, such as when the pair rescued stranded sailors during a storm. Relive their friendship and enjoy seaside activities across a wide assortment of fun and relaxing mini-games, including sand drawing, sailing, cockle hunting, playing fetch, sand surfing, pelican feeding, and more.
Improved performance for lower-end devices, improved touch input for Storm Boy walking on the beach.

Developers have fixed my problem on my iPad Air. I can happily say this is the loveliest and serene story in the App Store. I had not heard of this story/book from Australia. The story was short but I feel full of plenty enough interactive portions to keep me interested all the way through. I am not sure what ages this story is aimed for but the end is a bit rough for small kids. Beautifully done. Changing my initial 1 Star ⭐️ to a 5 star ⭐️ rating. Congrats to the heart behind this game.
********Game looks awesome but it starts strangely, white screen then the title page does load but there is no fluidity in the plants, water etc. The sounds of the few footsteps I could haphazardly cause the boy to take (meaning no instructions on how to get the boy across the screen) do not match the steps. Sound is off. I could not advance the game smoothly because it acted like it was frozen on and off, back and forth. I restarted my iPad, cleared the back pages, deleted the game, reinstalled the game. No change. I’m bummed. Help
UPDATE- development team has assured me they are working hard on the problem and should have an update for us soon.

Hi Maebelle, I'm sorry to hear that the game isn't running properly for you!
Can you tell us what type of iPad you're using, so that we can investigate? Please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we can continue to help you there! Thanks in advance. //
Update: We just fixed all performance issues in our last update! Let us know if you have any other issues.
This isn’t a game
I finished this story in 10 minutes, it’s not even worth $1, nothing happens at all, there’s 0 game play, unless you enjoy useless but calming mini games in which nothing actually happens. You walk around and you can swim, but nothing actually happens in this game, it’s an interactive story. But the story doesn’t change at all based on the player
Waste of money
I was so happy to play this game but there is not even an hour worth of playing because the story line ends this is a wast of money
