Notice to nostalgics! Ubisoft has announced the launch of an application that will bring back memories to some. Adibou signs its return to iOS and Android this Thursday. Intended for children aged 4 to 7, it uses the codes of the star educational game of the 1990s, but with a touch of modernity.
The most nostalgic exulted at the announcement of the return of one of the most famous heroes of their childhood at the end of 2021. Adibou makes its appearance on smartphone and tablet this Thursday. Nearly 30 years later, it has hardly changed.
For young people in their thirties or those who are close to it, it is a certain Proust madeleine. Adibou, the little extra-terrestrial in the red cap and surrounded by his friends, rocked their education thanks to PC/console games and educational TV programs. Acquired by Ubisoft ten years ago, the license created by Coktel Vision has returned to the forefront thanks to the children of the co-creator of Adibou, Manon, Thibaut and Hugo Oskian, who proposed to Yves Guillemot to reconnect with the adventures of the hero.
Adibou bywill be back on April 28!
📱 Available on iOS and Android.

In partnership with the company Wiloki, set up by the three children, Ubisoft has therefore brought Adibou back to life in an iOS and Android mobile application intended for children aged 4 to 7.
The perfect remake for nostalgics
And Adibou the application relies on the affect that made the success of the game of yesteryear. You can find all the Adibou codes there. The character has been modernized in 3D and has a smile taped to his face and still his little pointed ears under his cap. He even still has the same voice and his environment remains colourful, joyful and lively. His friends Plop the dog, the strange Bouzigouloum or the bee are also there.
In the world of Adibou, after having created his profile according to his age, the child will therefore be able to walk around the house, the vegetable garden or the garden, go to the mathematics room and become familiar with learning numbers. and logic through different little games. He can do the same with letters, or listen to stories (The Pyramids of Egypt, The First Steps on the Moon, Robin Hood, Little Red Riding Hood, etc.), watch videos about Adibou or learn about different games that appeal as much to their logic as to their memory or dexterity (Memory, Casse-briques, etc.).

A multitude of activities to appeal to creativity and logic
Each activity is adapted to their age and three levels are offered to follow their progress. The very short mini-game format will delight them and the thumbs up validates the results, an element now well identified by the very young. The game also involves logic in the minds of young players. Growing wheat in the vegetable garden will feed the birds on the roost. To make the cakes, it will also be necessary to collect fruits and vegetables, but also to collect honey thanks to the bees.

With the return of the most famous educational companion of the youngest, Ubisoft opens the door to a buoyant market, that of learning through digital technology. A field on which Powerz recently ventured, an educational game carried by former members of Shadow, which wants to facilitate the learning of languages, French or even mathematics for children from 6 years old. Or just after Adibou, but relying on the same springs: learning more easily and intuitively in a joyful and playful environment.
