The Tin Soldier is now a new experience full of movement and interactive features. We started with the book published by Editorial Galaxia based on the cartoon film by Continental Producciones and Algarabía Animación. The application by Moombite Games has been designed so that it can be read in three languages (Galician, Spanish and English). It has a load of touchscreen areas, sound effects and animations. But, if what you want to do is simply read, you can also enjoy the texts and turn over the pages by pressing the arrows, as if it were a beautifully illustrated album. Or perhaps you would rather not have the text on the screen and simply play with the movements, interactive features, magic and characters that come alive for you to experiment with. Touch the screen anywhere you like and see what happens.
You'll be surprised.

iPad version of the Hans Christian Andersen fairytale that is undoubtedly one of the favourite stories of all times, now told in an adaptation by Xavier Senín from a completely Galician point of view. The main character is now a young Galician boy, also a soldier and also in love with a ballerina, but the other characters are very special. The wicked Harlequin is now a perverse Cigarrón from the Verín Carnival and his allies are a chestnut seller and a sailor. The application comes from the prize-winning cartoon DVD by Continental Producciones and Algarabía Animación and the story is set in the Toy Museum of Allariz, published as a book by Galaxia. The iPad application has been made by the team at Moombites Games.

A different and special way of enjoying this timeless story in the new digital world, of seeing classical literature under a completely new and avant-garde light.
The story has not changed: the beautiful love story of a heroic soldier and a ballerina. A fairytale for dreaming about a better world. But now the stage is the Toy Museum of Allariz and the baddie is a Cigarrón, which turns the story into a purely Galician tale. A story with clear-cut educational values and full of literary strength.
Our verdict: Good
  • + El SOLDADITO DE PLOMO is an ok, 3.5-star app.
  • + The app is currently free, instead of its regular price of $2.99.
