Fiete Cars – Car Racing App Lets Children Become Creators of their GameJune 7, 2017
Cologne, Germany – Ahoiii Entertainment is proud to announce that from now on, parents can download the update of the currently featured children’s app Fiete Cars (v.2.0.0) on the App Store for free. The game is suitable for kids 5 years old and up. Fiete is the name of a little sailor. He is the hero of now 9 apps by Ahoiii Entertainment, with whom children worldwide can learn something through playing.
The typical sandbox gameplay of Fiete Cars lets children become creators of their own car racing game with Fiete and supports kid’s creativity, imagination, free play and the ability to independently solve problems in a playful way. In the Children’s App Fiete Cars:
The Kids are the Master Builders:
To build individual car routes the kids can use lots of funny building-parts and special-effects, like muddy oder curved roads, farting pads or speed ramps. The handling is easy. The children just need to tap on the items with their finger and place them into the landscape wherever they want to build their roads.
The Kids choose the Driver and the Vehicle:
For trying out the self built racing tracks the kids can choose Fiete or his friends as drivers and lots of amazing vehicles. With 20 brand new ones the current app update of Fiete Cars now includes 40 funny cars, flying objects and animals, e.g. UFO, schoolbus for animals, rocket, elephant, hovercraft, fireengine and many more.
The Kids decide what happens in their Game:
As the app Fiete Cars has no special target the kids need to reach, they are having the freedom to invent own storys and to decide what will happen in their game. Everything is possible. Thus it takes place that the driver granny Lara found a new hobby: She loves to do daredevil stunts over speed ramps with her monster truck. Or sailor Fiete rides with Dolly the horse along cow’s pastures to his meeting with Emma. But Emma is late – it would have been better if she had not taken the supposed shortut over the broken roads with her Oldtimer.
The Kids improve important Key Skills:
Fiete Cars gives children room for free play. Building own car routes encourages the imagination and creativity of the kids and motivates them to independently develop ideas and solutions for their game.
“What began with the focus on creating beautiful and fun apps for kids, that encourage the children to learn something through playing, has lead to developing the brand Fiete,” explained Sarah Walitzek, Project Manager for Koln based Ahoiii Entertainment UG. “It all startet when two of the team members of Ahoiii became parents. The first app Ahoiii developed was actually made for their own kids. Just for fun they uploaded the lovingly and beautiful illustrated app with sailor Fiete on the App Store and were finally overwhelmed by the enthusiastic feedback from thousands of parents. With the intuitive gameplay, the handmade look and his friendly character Fiete conquered kid’s and parent’s hearts over night worldwide. Since then the world of sailor Fiete grows constantly.”
