App Description

The Trip to Panama – the adventures of Tiger and Bear as an extraordinary app to discover and re-discover

Experience Janosch's bestselling classic picture book “The Trip to Panama” in a completely new way. In the app, you are going to travel with Bear, Tiger & their Tiger Duck to Panama – the land of their dreams.

Accompany Tiger and Bear in seven interactive chapters on an unforgettable journey to the land that "smells of bananas all over". Each of the seven chapters contains a fun game in which you can help Bear and Tiger on their journey. By playing the games you will receive rewards, which you can collect on the rotating Panama globe. In an extra area, selected mini games are waiting for you with even more levels.

Using animation technology that creates a cinematic look, the popular Janosch drawings gain a depth of field and are brought to life without losing that picture book feel in the process. Carefully placed interaction opportunities further enhance the story.

The timeless story of Tiger and Bear who go on a journey to Panama, has been enchanting children and adults alike for three generations. A nice home and good friends – that’s what you need to be happy. Because: “If you have a friend, (...) you don't have to be afraid of anything.”

Over 150 Janosch books have been published to date, some of which have been translated into more than 30 languages and have been sold millionfold. His Bear, Tiger and Tiger Duck characters have become an integral part of German literature and television (Tiger Duck Club).

Following the publication of “The Trip to Panama”, the book received the German Children’s Book Award.
The app was developed by Mimimi Productions UG, winner of the Apple Design Award 2012, the German Developer Prize 2014, and awarded as Best German Studio #5 at GameStars 2012.
