 Mosster Releases Four New Music Apps for Children

Written by Sarah Hanlon

Attention, parents! There’s a brand-new suite of apps available on the App Store for your youngster to enjoy.

Mosster, the developers behind PanPaTan, PanPaShake, Tachin Tachan, and Tachin Mini, released all four apps on July 28.

The first app in the suite, PanPaTan, is available on the iPad for $2.99. PanPaTan focuses on teaching children valuable music skill such as playing and listening.

The app encourages them to interact with the iPad in unconventional ways to create music.

Children and parents can play along together, as well, thanks to multiplayer functionality and the ability to play up to four instruments at the same time.

PanPaShake, the second app in the Mosster lineup, is a free nighttime app for iPhone and iPad. Children can listen to Twinkle Twinkle Little Star while watching animations on the screen.

Shaking the iPhone or iPad controls the tempo of the song, which in turn teaches children about rhythms. New songs will be added to the app in upcoming updates, as well.

The third children’s app, Tachin Tachan, allows kids to team up with five musicians and make beautiful music together.

From Quirky Bird to Little Maraca, each character has their own unique instrument for kids to play.

Similar to PanPaShake, children must interact with the iPhone and/or iPad in various ways in order to make music.

Tachin Mini, the fourth and final app in the new series, is a lite version of Tachin Tachan. In this edition of the app, only one character (Mr. Moustache) is available to play with.

However, the app still functions like the full version in that kids can make music and play with it.

Mosster takes app development seriously, but they believe adding a physical aspect to their games is just as important as having a solid app.

According to their App Store descriptions, “We believe real toys have always been incredibly important social tools for the development of children. And that’s something we are trying to bring to our digital medium.”

On a final note, all four Mosster apps do not contain any sort of in-app purchases or advertisements, which is music to a parent’s ears.

Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1, developed by Bastei Luebbe GmbH & Co. KG, is an interactive graphic novel for iPhone and iPad. If you have an interest in computers and technology, this is a graphic novel that will definitely pique your interest.

The concept of cyber terrorism is a scary one, and it’s even scarier to know that it’s something that goes on almost every single day.

The world we live in is one that is constantly immersed in an ongoing battle between those who want to use technology to harm and those who are prepared to keep it from happening.

Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1 takes readers on a wild ride that’s filled with suspense, drama, dynamic characters and intriguing situations.

You’ll follow along with an impressive cast of characters, from the young upstarts with the greatest security software on the market to the evil cyber criminal who is willing to do whatever it takes to bend technology to his will.

Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1, like many other iOS comics and graphic novels, can be navigated by swiping your finger across the screen in the direction that you want pages to turn. In addition to that, I was pleased to see that the novel is broken up into individual chapters that can be accessed from the menu screen.

Believe it or not, chapter separation for easy navigation is actually something that many iOS comics lack. As you progress through the story you’ll encounter interactive elements and unlock facts about cyber threats and how they impact our society today.

As far as graphics and storyline, Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1 is truly an amazing graphic novel to read.

At first it’s difficult to separate fact from fiction, but once you realize that what goes on in the novel is incredibly relevant to today’s world, the lines between fact and fiction become blurred and it makes for a truly immersive experience.

Though this “feature” could technically fall under the category of functionality, I feel it’s something that really makes Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1 stand out from the crowd.

The app includes a unique visual feature, dubbed 3D Parallax. You might be familiar with the term, as it’s something that Apple has recently integrated into iOS.

Essentially what this does is create a stunning visual effect that reacts to device movement. Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1 takes it a step further by hiding interactive elements behind objects, which can only be discovered by moving your device around.

Also, Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1 features a menu screen that goes far beyond chapter selection. You can learn more about cyber terrorism, see the collection of facts that you’ve accumulated and read more about them, and check out links to the Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1 project.

Here’s a story of redemption; a little rejected devil is looking to make his ascension to heaven. Here’s a story of conquering the odds, and finding the gradual path to enlightenment and eternal sanctity.

Am I looking too much into it? Perhaps, but the implications of What The Hell?!, from Saket Sinha, speak loudly to those of all creeds.

This puzzle based adventure game is comprehensive, challenging, and tied together with a sad tale of demonism and a slight twist of hope.

Features: star What The Hell?! Is A Heavenly Arcade Treatstar What The Hell?! Is A Heavenly Arcade Treatstar What The Hell?! Is A Heavenly Arcade Treatstar What The Hell?! Is A Heavenly Arcade Treatemptystar What The Hell?! Is A Heavenly Arcade Treat

This game boasts over 30 levels, each one requiring you to collect bonuses, avoid angelic figures, and hop from lofty patch to lofty patch. There are three central stages of the game, each one that helps to tie together a narrative from the main character.

Each stage has a plethora of obstacles, including plenty of hurdles and impossible leaps.

Your devilish character has four special abilities to help you surmount the odds; fire, freeze, shrink and blast. These powers are crucial to help you advance through the levels at hand and are a thrill to use.

What the Hell?! is well built and highly functional. However, you’re going to have to face your fair share of advertisements if you wish to complete the game, and we’re talking about ads after basically each death and victory.

Still, you’ve got to keep the lights on and we can’t fault the developers too much for that, although we’d like to see them back off a bit.

The game itself has a definitive arcade style feel and is a relatively quick download. I can see this app getting some good press around Halloween especially.

Is this app going to change the way you interface with your mobile phone or device? Most likely not. Is it going to outshine Pacman, GTA San Andreas, or some of the countless infamous games made and adapted for iOS? No luck there either.

However, this is definitely a fun game that carves out its own niche of twisted fun with a great cartoon intro, some challenging levels and a generally well-executed formula.

Since you don’t have to pay, there’s no harm in giving it a whirl. However, you better have a stomach for devilish themes and handfuls of ads as well.

Paper Universe—Drag the Rocket is an arcade style app by Matthias Flur. This fun and creative game transports players into a beautifully simple world made entirely of paper.

Features: star Capture the Aliens in Paper Universe!star Capture the Aliens in Paper Universe!star Capture the Aliens in Paper Universe!star Capture the Aliens in Paper Universe!halfstar Capture the Aliens in Paper Universe!

This app’s name really says it all when it comes to figuring out what it is all about. Specifically, players in Paper Universe—Drag the Rocket are transported into a game that will undoubtedly conjure up the feeling of playing with paper cutouts to entertain yourself during class in elementary school.

In this game, players guide a paper rocket through a paper-crafted universe of “aliens.” Although not an extremely fast-paced challenge, the game play in Paper Universe is still fast enough to keep players on their toes, as they must “capture” each alien in order to stay alive.

This game can be connected to Game Center, Twitter, and Facebook if players want to make it a more social experience and challenge their friends and family members to beat their high scores.

A simple soundtrack plays in the background of the game.

Overall, I was pleased with the smoothness of the operation of the app; the pace of the rocket within the game was appropriately challenging, and no lag was experienced when directing the rocket around the screen.

The graphics of Paper Universe are definitely unique.

As indicated by its name, this app is created so that all of the components of the game resemble paper cutouts or sheets of paper. This style of graphics is certainly very simplistic looking, and it probably won’t appeal to anyone looking for sophisticated graphics in an iOS game.

However, there is definitely still a quaint beauty to Paper Universe, and for the intended purpose/design of the game, these simplistic paper graphics perfectly fit with the overall theme of the app.

Additionally, the layout of Paper Universe makes it easy to get around; the home screen features only the bare minimum of navigational tabs, presenting an app that is not cluttered at all.

As mentioned previously, Paper Universe—Drag the Rocket is a free app. For this “price,” we consider Paper Universe to be well worth at least a trial run on your iPhone. In fact, we think it’s very likely you’ll find the app to be worth keeping around for awhile.

The pace of the game play is great for both children and adults alike, and the friendly simplistic graphics keep it appropriate for audiences of all ages as well.

When you’re looking to kill a bit of time by playing an iPhone or iPad game, sometimes you want something that simple and easy to pick up and play.

If this is the case, Slurf might just be the brand-new iOS game that you’re looking for. Developed by Render Junkies LLC, this simple and challenging game will keep players coming back for more.

Right off the bat, Slurf reminded me of Doodle Jump and Flappy Bird.

The goal of the game is to help your character navigate around barriers in his/her path. This is done by sliding your finger across your device’s screen. If you collide with one of the barriers, the game is over.

Getting the hang of Slurf is easy, while mastering the mechanics of the game is a bit more difficult and challenging.

It took me a while before I could reach a score of at least 5, but after about 10 minutes I could easily reach a score of 20 or above.

It’s rare to find an iPhone game that’s both simple and fun to play. However, Slurf managed to do just that. This particular game does just fine without complex storylines, levels, or in game stores.

It really is the perfect game for anyone who just wants to pick up a game and play it.

As you probably guessed, Slurf doesn’t include very many features. One that is included, though, is Game Center integration. This allows you to compete with friends, surf your way up the leaderboard, and send challenges to your friends to see if they can beat your score.

From what I could tell, Slurf doesn’t include achievements as of yet. Achievements would be a great addition to the game, especially for those who love to collect them while playing.

While testing Slurf, I thought of a few additions to the game that might make it even better. This includes being able to change the game background using various themes, which would help to liven up the game a bit more because the current background can get very boring very fast.
