Oceanhouse Media has today the first series of officially licensed iPhone Apps based on the beloved Dr. Seuss classic, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! First of all there’s Grinchmas, which is a snowball and present-throwing game – available in the App Store for $1.99. In addition there’s also Dr. Seuss Camera – The Grinch Edition (a greeting card maker), available for only $2.99.
Also coming this holiday season from Oceanhouse Media is a How the Grinch Stole Christmas! e-Book App. Written by Dr. Seuss in 1957, How the Grinch Stole Christmas! is being adapted for the first time to an interactive book format for the iPhone and iPod Touch which should bring it bang up to date for today’s kids.
Anyway, back to the two current Apps – the Grinchmas app is a game in which players assume the role of the Grinch perched atop Mount Crumpit. By swiping across the multi-touch screen, players throw either snowballs or presents down to Who-ville, depending on whether they feel “mean” or “merry.”
The Dr. Seuss Camera – The Grinch Edition app for the iPhone is now available in the Photography category and allows users to create festive “Grinchmas Cards” using the iPhone’s built-in camera. Players can pose with characters or choose to become the Grinch, his faithful four-legged friend Max, or even little Cindy-Lou Who. Cards can be personalized with comical and colorful stamps, borders and classic Seussian text. Grinchmas Cards can be e-mailed to friends and family or saved to the Photo Library.
