The best way to learn about nature? To explore it, of course. And you’re in luck: Little Mouse’s Encyclopedia, a beautifully-drawn nature game with a charming, storybook feel, turns learning into an intrepid expedition through the countryside.
You’re in good company with Little Mouse, a curious, big-eared creature, who roves the woodland and ponds of her habitat, encountering plenty of plants and creatures along the way.
See the blackbird tugging at a stout worm, or ride a mushroom elevator down the side of a towering oak tree. Swim through pond ferns, and prod at the deep roots of radishes as you bustle through underground warrens.
While you explore – with Little Mouse donning a tiny snorkel and flippers for underwater adventures – you will learn facts about the animals and plants you meet.
Hover over something with a magnifying glass and you’ll pull up a charming card with detailed information: such as how many eggs a turtle dove lays, or why one might want to eat a radish. Facts and figures are laid out next to captivating illustrations, and there are four habitats with more than 160 species of animals and plants to discover.
The controls are easy to handle, which places the emphasis on the magical settings and quirky details. There’s a whole wild world out there – go explore.
