A new app for kids to try out after yourself perhaps,after playing about with it myself for a few mins it pretty neat.. The game is simple to navigate with on-screen controls which are multi-directional. The app is an experiment though and uses 3G imagery from Google Maps.. It will keep kids entertained for a while anyway.. It is educational and filled with points of interest with speakers that sound off some information when you get into close proximity. You cant get lost either with a map on the top right hand side of your screen.
Verne: The Himalayas is a new app that invites you to explore Google Maps’ 3D imagery of the Himalayas alongside a 500 foot Yeti named Verne. As Verne, you can run up Mt. Everest in seconds, skate across icy lakes, chase yaks, discover bits of information, ride a jetpack, play traditional Himalayan instruments, and more.
