New 'Hero of the Rails' app launched

Callaway Digital Arts Inc. known as the makers of the Misty Island Rescue app for the iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad have released a similar app based on Hero of the Rails.

The 2009 special includes a storybook version to read along with moving graphical illustrations.

The description reads; Now you can experience Thomas & Friends like never before! Read, watch, listen, and play with Thomas, Hiro, and all your favorite engines in this action-packed adventure. 
With multi-touch animation, CGI video, painting, puzzles, and games, Thomas & Friends: Hero of the Rails provides a unique immersive experience the whole family will enjoy!

After a race with Spencer lands Thomas in the bushes, he discovers Hiro, an abandoned engine from a far-away land. Once called Master of the Railway, Hiro is now rusty and broken. 

Thomas promises to help repair him, but quickly realizes that he can’t complete his usual jobs and help Hiro on his own.
To make matters worse, nosy Spencer is close to figuring out that Thomas is up to something! Can Thomas and his friends pull together to help Hiro before it’s too late?

Hero of the Rails can now be purchased at a special introductory price on iTunes both in the UK and US along with the Misty Island Rescue app.

  1. I love the Thomas Storybook Apps! It is probably one of the smartest moves that HIT Entertainment has done for Thomas!
