Created to immerse readers in the world of Planes wherever and whenever, the app features "tilt-and-play" technology that gives pilots a chance to fly as "Dusty" through the story.
These games are pretty difficult for an old timer like me, but youngsters will probably take to them easier! Also, I highly recommend downloading this on an iPad rather than an iPhone if possible, to aid in ease of play.
There are many "tappable" features, so tap on anything that catches your eye to hear character names, dialogue, and actual animation from the film!
Also, as this is a retelling of the movie, if you don't want to know the plot, you may want to wait until after the film's release to read it.
But in the meantime you can always play the game!
The "Race & Fly" game allows readers to race as their favorite Planes characters.
You can unlock other planes as you advance.
There is also a "Scan and Fly" feature. Once a day, you can scan a "Planes" logo to unlock a plane trading card!
I scanned the logo off of my computer to do so...
...and unlocked a Dusty card!
Also, those who purchase the Planes Read-Along Storybook and CD Bundle – available exclusively at The Disney Store and Disney Parks – will receive the “Planes: Storybook Deluxe” app for free, including four exclusive Planes to fly as in the app’s “Race & Fly” game; a download code can be found inside the book cover and is redeemable on the iTunes App Store.
I'd like to thank Disney Publishing for providing Disney Musings this App for review.
