Review, Appy Chat & Giveaway
Developer: Slant Six Games Inc.
When did you decide to develop this app?
In 2012 just after our team had finished working on a big console title, we were keen to try a much smaller mobile project and we decided to try our skills at a children’s app!
When did you first release this app?
The app was released April 25th 2013, and is currently featured as New and Noteworthy by Apple.
How long did it take you to develop this app?
15 weeks. We decided to take a small team and short development cycle with this project and we’re super happy with the result!
What is your favourite feature?
It has to be the variety of mini games available, defeating the tentacle sea monster or dueling with swords. Also the spinning interactive globe is super fun and unique!
What is your favourite page in the app?
One of our favourite highlights is the cannon shoot out in Barnacle Bill’s hideout, you have to try and catch him with a cannon ball and win all the gold!
What skills were you hoping to help the end user to develop?
Social skills, fine motor, reasoning, communication and encouragement, reading
What age range would this app most suit?
Ideally this would suit 5-10 year olds. It’s meant to be played with friends and family in the spirit of a traditional board game but with modern technology so you can plug your device into the big screen TV
Are any new updates coming soon?
Yes! We are busy developing new content, we’ll keep you posted on the details
Ahoy there! Max’s Pirate Planet – A Board Game Adventure is a high seas pirate board game adventure on a thrilling and interactive spinning globe.
This is a paid board game which comes complete – no in app purchases! Also please note, if you start walking around asking for loot or saying things like “yar”, “yo-ho” or “ahoy”, we cannot be held responsible.
Legend has it that Barnacle Bill hid his hoard of gold in the fabled Sunken City, then hid pieces of the map in treasure chests all over the globe. The chests are protected by monsters you have to defeat. Choose from five unique pirate characters and sail your ships around the globe in a race to find the map pieces. If you play with your friends, you can challenge them to a duel with swords and cannons to get ahead in the treasure hunt. Once you discover the secret hideout of Barnacle Bill, you must try to defeat him in a cannon shoot out to win the game and get all his gold! Everybody ready? Yo-ho-ho and off we go…!
