We received a copy of the new App Wreck-It Ralph Storybook Deluxe to try out and review. I’ve seen the Wreck-It Ralph movie and I’ve reviewed many of the Disney Storybook Deluxe apps. This one is the best by far. The thing that makes it extra special, in addition to having tons of character quotes in the story, is that there is a playable Sugar Rush racing game complete with a kart baking portion so that kids (and their parents) can bake one of a kind racers to use to compete in Sugar Rush. I love that Disney added this to the app, it was a part of the movie that I enjoyed and it translates well. The racing game itself is simple enough, but still fun to play.
The Storybook portion of the app is also very well done. The reader can interact with the scenes by tapping various areas, sometimes a couple of times to get multiple quotes and other hidden gems. Later you see Vanellope popping in and out of frame all over the place. If you can catch her as she’s “Glitching” you will be rewarded with even more quotes.
I enjoyed the narration by Jason Marsden as well. He’s done a lot of work on programs that I enjoy like Transformers Rescue Bots and G.I. Joe Renegades. In this app he does an excellent job and his voice is perfect for the narration.
The Wreck-It Ralph Storybook Deluxe App is $6.99 in the App Store. Here is the official write up about the app.
