The children loved The Twits by Roald Dahl as you may have read.
This time though they were thrilled to get their own back at the Twits because they did feel very sorry for the birds and the monkeys and how the Twits would treat them.
How did they manage this? Well, through the App of course – it is the digital world!
The House of Twits App is available on the iPad and iPhone and the children couldn’t wait to get playing.
The House of Twits app consists of a number of rooms in the Twits’ house which you can unlock by levelling up. In each room you can play a number of tricks on the Twits by poking them (yes really) and pulling Mrs. Twit’s eye out (!). Maybe gross, but the kids quite like treating the Twits badly especially since they disliked the way they treated the monkeys and birds.
HOUSE OF TWITS is set in Mr and Mrs Twit’s revolting house and allows players to explore rooms including the filthy kitchen, Mr Twit’s shed and even the ghastly bathroom! You score points by poking, feeding and tricking the revolting pair. From serving a disgusting dinner of spaghetti and worms, to swiping Mrs Twit’s glass eye and giving Mr Twit’s beard a tug, players will be able to have loads of mischievous fun and score points along the way.
Many elements of the app will be familiar to existing fans of Roald Dahl’sThe Twits – most notably the fiendishly inventive tricks that Mr and Mrs Twit play upon another – whether it’s Mrs Twit cooking up a plate of wormy spaghetti or dropping her glass eye into her husband’s mug of beer, orMr Twit cunningly adding bits of wood to his wife’s walking stick to convince her she has the dreaded shrinks.
HOUSE OF TWITS is hilarious fun for children aged 6-11, and will appeal to everyone with a sense of mischief, whether they are existing fans of The Twits or newcomers to the characters and story.
