    Welcome to Jack and the Beanstalk - Unlock the Story!

    Our Jack and the Beanstalk app blurs the distinction between story and game more than ever before to create a completely new kind of reading experience for children: this is where on-screen gaming and reading meet.

    Jack and the Beanstalk rewards success with more story, and encourages repeat play with endless variety. Play games in different rooms of the giant’s castle and collect keys to unlock more of the story - and capture the giant's treasure without waking him up to carry on playing!

    Jack and the Beanstalk features:

    An exciting, open environment to explore: find the right key to open nine different doors in the giant’s castle, each with unique games and characters behind them

    Real consequence within the story: wake up the giant at different points in the narrative to create new ending

    A totally non-linear narrative: work your way through the castle in a different order every time and experience different endings based on Jack’s progress through the castle

    An emphasis on reading for pleasure that will be particularly good at encouraging reluctant boy readers who love on-screen gaming to participate in a reading experience

    Innovative use of iOS device features: the app takes advantage of the fantastic potential of the front-facing camera, gyroscope, multi-touch screen, retina display and more
