Aimed at children (as classified by platforms download the application, for children under 5 years), MarcoPolo Weather lets explore the weather, see the importance of climate and how different living beings react before different weather conditions.
Within the application interface two areas can be distinguished :
- top provides access to the different climatic variables (climate, temperature – in ° C and ° F – and wind) and can modify them freely. The selected character is adapted to the weather of the moment (ie, if temperature is selected below zero, the character will shiver, and if it’s hot, it will show an unbearable heat), as well as a switch to change the settings between night and day. .
- the lower part that slides allows feed, dress or entertain to the selected character. You can also interact with the animals that appear on the screen (eagles, squirrels, etc.) or plant flowers that grow in the rain.
The application on Android version used to perform this analysis includes in-app purchases. That is, to unlock additional weather events such as tornadoes or storms (identified with a lock), you must pay €2.19.
