From PR Newswire:

NEW YORK, May 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Launching today, TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: DINO ISLAND, an interactive storybook app from PlayDate Digital, under license by Hasbro, Inc., features the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots changing into dinosaur robot forms to save the day. When the going gets tough, the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots go "Dino Bot" in this exciting and educational story, perfect for early and emerging readers.

Similar to PlayDate's storybook app TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: SKY FOREST RESCUE, which launched in 2014, OPTIMUS PRIME recruits the reader to help the Rescue Bots train and join the action as Griffin Rock Rescue's newest cadet. To rescue Professor Baranova and Frankie Greene from the clutches of Colonel Quarry, the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots need to change into their dinosaur modes, but that's not enough to bring their friends home safely. The reader becomes the hero in this interactive adventure by helping the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots train for their mission, outsmart Colonel Quarry, and give Blades the flight bot the push he needs to take flight!

"When we saw our first TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS app race to the #1 spot in Paid Book Apps in the App Store in over 40 countries, we knew there was a hunger for more Rescue Bots stories," said Shaan Kandawalla, Co-Founder of PlayDate Digital. "We're proud of what we've created in our second feature. This is a TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots adventure that happens as you read it, and it will help early readers practice the basics of reading and word usage in a fun and captivating way."

"PlayDate Digital never disappoints when it comes to delivering a product that is engaging, educational, and relevant for our youngest TRANSFORMERS fans," said Jeff Popper, Vice President of Global Marketing for Hasbro, Inc. "Their Dino Island storybook app places the reader in the action, helping them not only practice their reading skills but problem solving as well."

This highly entertaining app is inspired by the hit animated series TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS, created by Hasbro Studios and currently airing in 130 countries and on Discovery Family Channel in the United States. Now, the adventures of the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots and their human partners can be part of every child's early reading experience in this thrilling new storybook app.
