What did you like about it?
At first glance, this looked like a game that was fit for kindergarten kinds, but don’t let the cardboard cutout graphics fool you. This is truly a neat application that includes almost 1,000 cardboard cutouts that have been “sliced, glued, photographed and animated by hand. Both kids and their parents love Albert.
The main goal is to follow Albert from sunup to sunrise doing various activities including travelling in a hot air balloon, blowing chewing-gum bubbles using your microphone, throwing soap into a bathtub while tilting your device and catching falling stars in the night sky.
