Paper Ocean | Stormcloud’s new creative origami app with marine animals for kids
✔ iPad + iPhone | kids app for ages 4-7+ yrs.
With Paper Ocean, kids can now dive into a beautiful underwater world, which is populated by some very interesting origami marine animals and fishes. Kids need to busily fold various origami animals, collect pearls and also play some mini games, to watch the ocean come to life.
True to Original Origami
The marine animals are realistically folded out of a bi-colored piece of origami paper, which is great fun. Only in the last step, the origami model changes into the somewhat simpler game graphics. Before the animals are released into the ocean, they can be decorated with little accessories or perhaps have their color changed.
The animals can then be seen in the ocean, which is rather empty at the beginning. Lots of various decorations need to be unlocked, which are all a little interactive (animations & sounds), six of them even include real exciting mini games.
We particularly liked the boat racing game and the Goal wall shooting.
Both the folding of the origami models and the playing of the mini games, are rewarded with pearls, that children can use to buy some new buildings and decorations. There are absolutely no in-app purchases!
Last year, the friendly origami masters from Japan, hosted the two previous games of Paper Ocean, but now he seems to have submerged himself, what we think is a little bit of a shame.
We also miss one other thing: The animals are unable to have paper babies, which was a really good aspect of Mr. Shingu’s Paper Zoo. The baby animals always inherited the colours of the mother and the father animals, you basically had some awesome breeding possibilities.
This is also why we still recommend you to check out Mr Shingu’s Paper Zoo, which is available for iOS, Android and Kindle fire.

Paper Ocean | kids app rating
As you were able to see on the screen shots, there are a lot of whales swimming in Paper Ocean. A total of four different whale paper models can be folded. The app definitely won our hearts, especially as we are such big fans of whales. However, Paper Ocean is simply a long-lasting entertaining app for children, where definitely not everything can be unlocked and discovered in one day.
(+) The mini games are better than in Paper Zoo
(+) Change of night and day
(-) Animals can’t have babies
