Our Review of The Smurfs 2 Movie Storybook Deluxe – iStoryTime
Yup, pop superstar Britney Spears was lucky enought to hold Smurfette in her hand in the Ooh La La music video. What a lucky mom! But don’t be sad kids, you can now hold all the Smurfs on your hands and experience a fantastic adventure with them all on your iPad or iPhone!
The evil wizard Gargamel kidnaps Smurfette because she’s the only onw who knows the secret spell to turn his new creations – the Naughties – into real Smurfs! Then an exciting adventure begins, the Smurfs are on their way to rescue the one and only female Smurf in the village: Smurfette!
The 3D graphics are taken from the original animated movie, and kids will also hear the genuine character voices as well. Although the graphics are lively and attractive and there are three reading modes to choose from (Read to me, Read to myself, and Autoplay,) the pages of this storybook app lack good interactive elements, unfortunately.
However, this time I’m happy with the mini games included in the app. The games are wrapped in a section called Smurf Playground and there are four games to play. My kids’ favorites are the the hidden puzzle game and the dress-up activity (you’re going to beautify the Naughty, by the way.) There’s also a quiz game to challenge Smurfs fans, while the last game is called Trophy Room.
In a word, kids who love Smurfs and movie storybook apps would adore this app.
