Mouse Tech: Brave Storybook Deluxe App Review

Merida, star of Brave Storybook Deluxe (Mouse on the Mind)I’m a little bit of a gaming nerd. Board, card or video, I have lots of favorites, but my favorites are puzzle and physics games. Recently, I downloaded the Brave: Storybook Deluxe App, which features a bit of both.

Disney’s Product Description
Experience the magic of Disney/Pixar’s BRAVE as an interactive storybook app. Read along and discover beautiful art, stunning animation, and special effects. Hunt for hidden arrows and take aim in a Medieval-style archery game.

The Scottish Highlands have long been a fierce, proud land filled with stories, and magic, and danger. Merida, the Princess of DunBroch, adds her tale of courage and determination to the ancient lore as she sets out to defy an age-old tradition and forge her own destiny.

My Thoughts
The abridged retelling of PIXAR’s newest film is fun and engagingly read. The stylized pictures and animations are attractive, and the games and hidden special effects add a layer of replayability to what might be a once-and-done activity.

I found the interface for the coloring and archery games easy and fun to use, and while I have been told that I’m just a big kid, I’m sure your little ones will enjoy it as well.

The only negative I found was that the puzzle game was so easy that it wasn’t enjoyable. I would have preferred the option to turn the background image off to make it more of a challenge.
