Nighty Night - a mix of narration, animation, and interactive components in the new children's app for Android. At this point, it is the only application developers from the studio Fox & Sheep. Well, let's evaluate their work!
So, we propose to lay all the animals on the farm, as was night, and the animals also need to sleep. To do this, we go into every room to every pet, pat him, seeing how he responds to the press on the screen, looking cute animation, and then turn it off in this room (kennel stall) light. Once we turn off the light, speaker wishes good night to each animal, and the pet is slowly lies down, closes his eyes and immersed in a peaceful and deep sleep.
If you try to turn on the light in the room again, nothing happens, just a little speaker whistles, making it clear that it is not necessary to disturb the animals tired for a day to rest. And after all the animals have already laid, and the mission in the application is made, the announcer says that, and we have also got to go to bed, because there was only one character that does not sleep - is you. If the child does not have enough time to sleep, you can replay the whole story again, seeing all the animations for the second time.
Nighty Night Features for Android:
- Designed by the eminent artist, Heidi Vitlingera;
- Pleasant voiceover;
- Dear and beloved children characters;
- 13 interactive characters with animation in 2D;
- Localization into 8 languages;
- Cheerful and pleasant animation - new in every scene with every animal;
- The ability to disable the speaker's voice;
- Ability to turn on auto play, without having to click on the screen, and just enjoy the history and the voice of the announcer.
Of the drawbacks I would like to point out the fact that, after upgrading the application on many devices began to emerge logs - after some actions the app just crashes and you have to start all over again. Also, it is impossible not to notice that, in general, a simple application takes a lot of memory and a fairly long time to boot.
In addition, children's minds are always trying to understand what he is granted for use. Therefore, there are cases when kids run first thing in the morning to wake up all of their new friends. So obviously this functionality would make the application more logical and more beloved, and not a single toy, the interest of which will disappear very quickly.
ResumeNighty Night - a kind of children's e-book for android with a good idea and not a quality performance. For two dollars you can buy 6 more species of animals in order to put them to bed, including those too. Pause when loading and departures significantly from spoiling the game. If the developers have tried to make use of the application ritual, then on the deficiencies would have to pay a lot more attention because of complaints of this program is already quite a lot.
