Like Toca Boca’s other apps, Toca Mystery House conjures a colourful, dynamic and kid-safe world for children to dive into. But whereas other Toca titles explore a real-life activity – like dancing or cutting hair – this one taps into the surreal and spooky.
Your mission: to explore a dark, cavernous and moody house, embracing the unknown as you go. You and your child will come upon long hallways, twisting staircases and glowing pairs of eyes – and with each courageous swipe and tap, you’re rewarded with enchanting puzzles to solve, potions to brew, music to perform and charming creatures to meet.
There’s a ghoul in the basement, aliens in the attic and a lot of strange characters lurking in between. Oh, and a few friendly ghosts too.
Just about everything in this house – whether it’s an open window, a skull on a shelf, or a path that seemingly leads to another dimension – is interactive. Tapping on a photo might offer a clue for a chemistry experiment later on. And that slime dripping down a wall may have a hidden purpose (beyond grossing you out).
There’s a ton of adventure to be found, and it’s all more silly than scary. Presented in Toca’s signature animated art style, Toca Mystery House masterfully evokes an otherworldly bedtime story.
