Thomas & Friends: Magical TracksSpring 2017 Mobile Apps
Thomas the Tank Engine Magic Tracks is a virtual train set that features the beloved title character and tons of familiar friends like Percy, Henry, and James. Players drive the trains all around the landmarks of Sodor- up hills, around curves, over drawbridges, and even through roller-coaster-like mountain passes exploring the island. They can ride the trains freely throughout Sodor to explore and play a variety of mini-games. Thomas might need to clear the tracks of wayward sheep, outrun falling boulders, or even just get a wash at the Engine Works. As players complete the mini-games they earn new engines, locations, and items to extend their world. The app hones hand-eye coordination, visual tracking, fine motor skills, attention, and following of directions. Although there's fun to be had in the free version, there are plenty of in-app purchases; additional items, trains and activity sets are available for $1.99-$3.90; or, the complete set can be purchased for $19.99.
