Scholastic I SPY Arcade Game Apps for Android & iPhone

Scholastic Media recently launched ‘I SPY Arcade’, a series of four new gaming apps inspired by the brain-teasing play of I SPY books and games from Scholastic. Each I SPY Arcade app features arcade-style games that keep players entertained while offering on-the-spot logic and reasoning challenges, 65 progressively difficult levels and ‘Super Challenger’ bonus levels.

Scholastic I SPY Arcade apps

The I SPY Arcade apps include:


Players race against time to determine the relationship of moving objects and match them to clear the game board and advance to the next level. Objects match in different ways (i.e. color, shape, usage, etc.), so players must pay attention and constantly change their thinking.

I SPY ARCADE: SPY SQUARES (Available January 2012)

Every object has its place in Spy Squares and players are challenged to figure out where each belongs! Objects in every row and column on the game board share characteristics – some obvious (color, shape), others not so obvious (name, function). More squares and more objects appear through advancing levels, making puzzles more challenging to solve.

I SPY ARCADE: FINE LINE (Available February 2012)

Leverage knowledge of numbers and math to divide objects on the game board into two or more groups with equivalent values. The farther that players advance through the 65 levels, the more complex the puzzles -- with more objects, more lines, and more math and logic concepts.

I SPY ARCADE: CRITTER CRAZE (Available March 2012)

Corral bugs and critters in a fast-paced game of visual discrimination. To advance through the levels, players must match critters with common characteristics. As each level gets solved, players unlock magnifying glasses, flashlights and x-ray tools to help distinguish the critters.

Each of Scholastic Media’s apps are developed in-house, ensuring the tone, look, and feel of the Scholastic brands such as I SPY, while guaranteeing that parents can trust the apps to be both educational and entertaining.

All four applications will be available for the iPhone® and iPod Touch® on the iTunes App Store, as well as for Android™ smart phones and tablets on the Android Market and other carrier stores at $2.99 each.
