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.

Concept and Functionality: 

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.

Features:

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.

Value:

Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1 is available to download from the App Store for $2.99 and is universally compatible with iPhone and iPad. If you have an interest in cyber security, computers, and technology, this is definitely a graphic novel that’s worth checking out.

Netwars – The Butterfly Attack – Episode 1netwars_episode_1.jpg requires iOS 4.0 or later and is compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch. This app is optimized for iPhone 5. A small expedite fee was paid to speed up the publication of this review.
