Champaign, Illinois – Spinlight Studio today announced the return of one of its most huggable heroes. The star of Gappy’s First Words is back! In an all-new game designed to make learning letters a blast for young learners everywhere.
In Gappy’s Mystery Letters, players follow a moving star with their finger to magically reveal a secret letter. With the movement based on the three popular handwriting styles, Gappy’s Mystery Letters offers a fun introduction to writing, along with a full-featured digital drawing pad and 52 virtual coloring sheets players can win, color and share.
Gappy’s Mystery Letters features:
* A fun, interactive letter-tracing game
* A digital drawing pad perfect for doodling and coloring
* 52 virtual coloring pages to win, color and share
* Three user-selectable handwriting styles
* A new parent’s gate to keep children away from settings
* A universal app design for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch
* iOS 7 compatibility
“Gappy’s Mystery Letters is ideal for the younger sibling of the kid that liked our last game,” says Matt Hutton, Spinlight’s CEO and co-founder. “While Gappy’s first adventure focused on words, the new game is all about recognizing the letters they’ll eventually need to write.”
Of course, it wouldn’t be a Spinlight app without an element of fun, which is where the drawing pad and color pages come into play. “It’s really a drawing, coloring, handwriting and letter recognition app all combined in one,” says Hutton. “Kids can just doodle if they want, but most can’t resist the urge to unlock all 52 coloring pages, and that provides all the motivation they need to play, laugh and learn.”
* iPhone 3GS, 4, 4S and iPhone 5, iPod touch (3rd, 4th and 5th gen) and iPad
* Requires iOS 4.3 or later
