LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO - November 23, 2011

Mindshapes, developer and publisher of interactive and fun education apps, has released another game to get the brain juices flowing. With their newest app, The Opposites, players follow a pair of twins who take different sides on just about everything- even which words to use! Players must observe the twins' word battle, matching up the opposing words, all the while learning new vocabulary to maneuver through increasingly tricky levels.

Available on the iPad®, iPhone® and iPod® touch, The Opposites teaches children ages seven and up over 500 pairs of opposing words. The app starts with easy pairs such as “up/down” and “in/out” and becomes more challenging as each child progresses until they are dealing with descriptive words and even technical terms. Each level introduces increasingly complex words for children to match up, so young minds will be stimulated each time they play and their literacy skills will constantly develop. The Opposites includes a child-friendly dictionary featuring a multitude of words that will improve speaking and writing abilities, and features voiceovers to aid children with their pronunciation and to boost their confidence in using new vocabulary.

“At Mindshapes, education is our number one priority, but there is no reason learning can’t be fun,” says James Peak, educational consultant at Mindshapes. “With The Opposites, we have created an entertaining and beautifully designed way to develop literacy skills. This app encourages young players to think deeply about new words and their meanings.”

Improve your child’s reading, writing and oral skills with The Opposites!

The Opposites by Mindshapes is available on the App Store for $2.99.
