Last week Miss Roo and I were treated to a new app for her iPad from the lovely PR team behind the new Rastamaouse Ride Da Riddim app. Finally the little mouse with a lot of soul has made it to our tablets and for a few hours last week the sounds of ‘easy man’ could be heard on a regular basis from the lounge. In case you’ve been sitting in the dark and have no idea who Rastamouse and the Easy Crew are here’s the official low down.
The colourful app is based on the CBeebies series, which has gained a massive following of fans who love the cast of unique characters, original music, vibrant look and engaging stories in each episode. Taking pre-schoolers and their parents on adventures through Mouseland, where the main character and his band ‘Da Easy Crew’ always ‘Make a Bad Ting Good’, Rastamouse is the local hero every neighbourhood needs. We love the music in the show and it was a joy to see it carried through in the app with the voices as real as the show too.
The game’s premise is built on the same principle as the TV show; as the player you are enlisted in the quest to ‘make a bad ting good’ playing as a member of Da Easy Crew – either Rastamouse, Scratchy or Zoomer. Bandulu has run out of cheese to make his famous pies for the ‘likkle’ orphans of Mouseland, and President Wensley Dale has asked for your help to collect as much as possible while also grabbing the music notes for extra points.
Something for children and parents alike – the game is engaging and fun, with loads of twists and turns to keep it interesting. The ‘wicked’ features include four unique tricks for each character, along with five ever-changing worlds to play through. Players ride through various Mouseland locales, from the docks to the skate park, all accompanied by the easy reggae which has become the shows trademark.
The simple interface means that the app is easy to navigate, and the world of Rastamouse comes to life in the most interactive way yet. Children will be entertained as they navigate the game’s landscapes and get closer to bringing home the cheese to Mouseland’s favourite chef.
The Rastamouse Ride Da Riddim app will be available from the iTunes store and will be £1.49. This app is definitely one to bring those feel-good island vibes through as everyone waits for the first rays of summer sun – which let’s face it seems a long way away with the snow at the moment.
