Disney is taking the already superior game-play of the iPad to the next level with their new line of toys that turn the Apple Tablet into a game board.
Cleverly called Disney Appmates, the new line of toys is launched with a game focused on the movie Cars 2.
With no bluetooth or wires needed, the player simply places and moves the toy car around the screen... by doing so, the screen will move and respond to every movement of the toy car - such as skidding in mud, knocking over obstacles and interacting with virtual characters...
Initially, four “Cars 2″ characters will be sold: Lightning McQueen, Tow Mater, Finn McMissile and Holley Shiftwell. Each two-pack will cost $20. The game is free to download. Players can just drive around and explore the world of Radiator Springs, or they can take it a little more seriously by completing tasks such as racing around a track or collecting hubcaps, which is the game’s virtual currency. The coins can then be spent on upgrading to new horns or headlights, which will appear at nighttime.
