Blaze And The Monster Machines Dinosaur Rescue App


NICKELODEON LAUNCHES BRAND-NEW
BLAZE AND THE MONSTER MACHINES DINOSAUR RESCUE APP, SECOND GAME INSPIRED BY THE HIT STEM PRESCHOOL SERIES



Nickelodeon’s brand-new Blaze and the Monster Machines Dinosaur Rescue app, the second game inspired by the hit STEM preschool series, is available now on the App Store for iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Blaze and the Monster Machines Dinosaur Rescue exposes preschoolers to STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) concepts as they travel through Dino Valley with Blaze and AJ.  The debut Blaze and the Monster Machines app reached #1 in the App Store’s Kids & Education categories and #2 overall among paid iPad apps.
Blaze and the Monster Machines Dinosaur Rescue encourages children to develop problem-solving strategies and complete physics-based puzzles by using various tools from Blaze to rescue his friend Zeg’s lost dinosaur eggs from dangerous situations.
The app features three different and exciting locations within Dino Valley, including the jungle, rocky plateaus and the volcano. Each location contains eggs and a hidden prehistoric gem. Using simple engineering machines and tools, including wheels, pulleys, levers, mirrors and solar panels, kids can experiment with height, weight, trajectory, and adhesion to retrieve the eggs and gems.
