Appcessories: Duo Gamer, Duo Pinball & Thomas & Friends Steam Team Station by Discovery Bay Games

A few months ago I wrote about Discovery Bay Games 'Appcessories' Preview, where I learned about Atari Arcade, Duo Pop and Plink, the newest iPad gaming accessories. During that event I learned about a few other Appcessories but since they weren't released yet I had to keep things hush hush. Until now!

The other Appcessories I learned about during the event included Duo Gamer, Thomas & Friends Steam Team Station, Duo Pinball and Dora the Explorer ‘Let’s Play Backpack’. All of these Appcessories took gaming on an ipad to a new fun level for both kids, teens and yes some adults.

The Let’s Play Backpack accessory app features games that reinforce matching, listening and logic skills, as well as Spanish language, inspired by Nickelodeon’s hit animated preschool series, Dora the Explorer.

    Each game includes four adventures: ‘Let’s Listen,’ ‘Let’s Pack,’ ‘Let’s Match,’ and ‘Say It Two Ways.’ In each adventure, players are presented with two choices that show up on the iPad screen. Players then place tokens on the corresponding spot on the backpack accessory to match their answer. The top of the backpack accessory will spin and collect tokens for each correct answer – no need for scorekeeping or counting.

Just in time for that last minute holiday shopping, Duo Games has announced that the newly launched Duo Gamer will now be available for HALF OFF, bringing the cost down dramatically to only $40!

Aside from the price dropping, the company plans to release two additional Gameloft games this month as well as three more in January 2013 resulting in a total of 10 awesome games!
