Magic Light Pictures has launched Gruffalo: Games, the first ever games app based on The Gruffalo.

Developed by Magic Light Pictures with Stormcloud Games, Gruffalo: Games has been created to mark The Gruffalo’s 15th anniversary and is available to download via the AppStore for iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad and iPad Mini, priced at £2.99.

The app features six puzzle games designed for three to seven year olds to help develop reactions, logic and problem solving skills.

Gruffalo: Games allows children to play Snap and 3 in a Row against the Gruffalo, help Mouse catch nuts, complete jigsaws of the characters, have fun with the forest bugs and engage in a matching game.

“We're very excited to be releasing Gruffalo: Games as we want the many fans of the book to enjoy the fun challenging games as much as we do," said Martin Pope, co-founder, Magic Light Pictures.

"We want players to get involved in the world of The Gruffalo, helping Mouse to catch nuts or playing games against the Gruffalo himself. It's such a pleasure and honour to be working with Julia's wonderful rhymes and Axel's amazing illustrations. We hope the puzzle games will be entertaining and rewarding for children and families everywhere.”

The app has been designed to ensure both players and parents feel comfortable and safe with no in-app purchases or third-party ads.

Frank Arnot, director at Stormcloud Games, added: "Once again we have loved working with Magic Light Pictures to produce this app.

"As parents, and readers of bed-time stories, it’s been a delight to help make a series of fun and challenging mini-games based on The Gruffalo. It's important for us as game developers that Gruffalo: Games is a positive, engaging digital product for children to enjoy. We developed our own puzzle games, as well as using traditional game formats such as Snap! and Three in the Row to give players the chance to play against and outwit the Gruffalo."
