There would be a damn good chance you'd still buy it if you're a fan of Star Trek, X-Men, or American Dad. StoryToys, the leading publisher of kids' games, books, and educational software for tablets and phones, has released Leonardo's Cat, strictly for iOS.
The Savage Studio-developed puzzle-adventure centers on the inventor's many influential works, featuring writing from Bob Tedeschi (The New York Times), and design by Michael Frith (The Muppets, Fraggle Rock).
According to Barry O'Neill, CEO of StoryToys:
"Watching Leonardo come to life through the imaginations of Michael Frith and the many incredibly talented writers, actors, and designers on this project has been such a wonderful gift. We look forward to seeing how children and adults alike engage with the exciting world of da Vinci and the Renaissance through this clever puzzler."
The plot? Well players need to take back the Automaton, or the world's first robot, which has been stolen from da Vinci's rival, Michaelangelo. You must step into the paws of da Vinci's cat, Scungilli, who must recover the shattered pieces of the Automaton, utilizing da Vinci's inventions to overcome obstacles and traps.
Here are the following features:
- 60 unique levels of exploding, crashing, and splashing puzzles across six environments
