If you thought that Google Play had done it all, then it’s time for you to think again. Grab your mobile phone and download this new Google app: Verne: The Himalayas. You will most surely be surprised.
Google Play strikes again, with another original app: they have recently launched a game design for children, but grown-ups fond of gaming, applications and IT can also give it a try. This new Google app displays a beautiful story and has an interesting concept: it allows the users to explore the snowy Himalaya Mountains (the highest mountains in the world).
The game is an offer to travel and to enrich children’s knowledge about things around them, like geography and things that hold the world record. The main character is the legendary mountain ape, Yeti, who is 500-foot-tall. This character allows the user to move around in the game and actually explore the surroundings. The game also connects to Google maps and uses 3D graphics.
It is quite an experience for an application! In the game, you can climb versants, practice extreme sports, and even play traditional Himalayan instruments, obviously, always assisted by the big, friendly Yeti. His name is Verne, and there is also a voice over, which provides you with information. Thus the game covers the domain of education as well.
Children and parents alike may find the game both entertaining and educational.
If you don’t like to miss any update, and you are passionate about games, than you should try Verne: The Himalayas. It might make you curious enough to go visit the mountains yourself (if you haven’t done it yet). Summing it up, you can enjoy an exciting virtual trip, or you can watch your kid getting excited about this app.
The game Verne: The Himalayas is now available on Google Play and if you have and Android phone, you can download it. This new Google App is perceived as an experiment by its creators, who made public the following statement:
“If Google chooses to later expand this experiment to encompass more of the world and the 3D imagery it collects, it could easily turn this concept app into something that is more like an interactive, kids’ version of Google Earth”.
