Those loveable blue Smurfs are about to leap from television history onto the big screen this week, and what better way to celebrate their theatrical arrival than with an iOS storybook featuring exclusive images and audio from the movie?
Anyone who's been to a Portland Timbers game knows that Timber Joey, the official mascot for PDX’s pro-soccer team, isn’t a cartoon character. He’s a burly, larger-than-life, flesh-and-blood man -- albeit one that happens to wear typified logger headwear and a wield a massive chain saw. Of course, the depiction of Timber Joey in a flash animated you-versus-the-hordes arcade game wouldn’t make sense as a real person, so here he is in fact a stylized character, and he’s pretty upset about the abundance of fish (these are the Seattle Flounders) trying to trample through his rose garden.
Apple’s iOS devices are enticing to adults who can afford them, but a new generation of kids have also become instantly engaged with them as well -- and developers are more than happy to keep them occupied with fresh new entertainment, including this week’s release of Ben 10 Triple Threat.
