Description

Presenting Biba Playground Games! - a bundle of games for you to play with your children out on your local playground. With this perfect blend of digital and physical play your family is sure to have an unforgettable playground trip that really gets kids moving.

As parents, Biba knows balancing screen-time with your kids can be a challenge - so why not turn the screen-fixation on its head. Our games turn screen-time into ACTIVE time, encouraging social and imaginative gameplay that get kids OFF the couch and moving!

Each Biba game presents imagination-centric adventures aimed at getting kids naturally active, and with this suite of fully interactive experiences, kids can go from pretending they're grand prix racers, to seeking out dinosaur bones, to collecting tiny baby robots to participating in cooperative relays--all made possible through the power of the device in your pocket.

Set in your local playground, Biba uses the equipment around you; simply select what equipment you have at the start of the game and you are ready to play. While the BEST experience may be in a BIBA playground, Biba games are designed to be playable in any neighborhood playground.

WHAT IS A BIBA PLAYGROUND? With over 6 million minutes played and 4,500 playgrounds worldwide (and growing!), Biba playgrounds leverages new augmented reality technology simply by scanning designated markers displayed throughout the playground to unlock new content, activate mini-games and reveal treasures and fun achievements when scanned.

BENEFITS & FEATURES

HELPING BALANCE SCREEN TIME
We know that balancing screen-time can be tough! That's why Biba games seek to use screens to get parents and kids engaging in outdoor and active experiences on their local playground. No sitting around staring at screens, in Biba games, kids ARE the avatars!

EASY TO PLAY
Biba games are simple to play and designed to re-imagine play for children, breaking kids away from sedentary video game experiences and getting them outside where the real fun happens.

DRIVING KIDS IMAGINATIONS
A whole new category of imagination-driven games that bring back the basic joy of play, blending digital interaction with the real world physical activity that kids need!

TOTALLY FREE & PRIVATE
We here at Biba are parents too, which means all of our games are not only free forever, but they respect your privacy, complying with COPPA/PIPEDA privacy legislation at every turn.

ACTIVE AND OUTDOOR
Biba games are intended specifically to get kids participating in what the World Health Organization refers to as “moderate-to-vigorous physical activity”--games that elevate heart rate and encourage consistent movement.

And don’t forget - Biba games are often wacky and unconventional, so for the best experience, please remember to agree to camera and microphone permissions when asked for!

Version History

Launched Sep 06, 2018 (over 2 years ago).

Releasing new versions every about 1 month, on average.

Mar 09
2020
(Current)
Version 4.2

Introducing two new games for the Spring season! 'Cops and Robbers' and 'Zombot Tag'!
These two twists on the schoolyard classics make for super active play with larger numbers of kids. Try them out next time you're visiting your playground with a party of children in tow!

In other big news, Biba now supports installations in INDOOR playgrounds as well! If you ever find yourself at a compatible indoor Biba playground, all you need to do is press 'Indoor/Outdoor' on the equipment screen to switch modes. Easy peasy!

Let us know what you think of the new games and remember, our map has been updated as well so finding Biba playgrounds should be easier than ever!

Version 4.1

We're happy to announce that we've rebuilt the map feature! This feature should now show Biba locations more accurately. Feel free to move around the map now and explore all of our locations!

Secondarily, this version includes some game updates:
-Treasure Hunter now features a number of new animations for a series of equipment and trap scenes.
-Relay now changes game state locations to visually distinguish between levels of progress.

Version 4.0

Our final update going into the holidays!

Firstly, some changes for Butterfly Bounty--starting with a new save feature! You can now take a break during your adventure should you not find the Golden Butterfly in one go. Along with that, we have also now included Bibabot campsite visits throughout the adventure! See what the other bots think about BigBot's objective. And finally, BigBot will now occasionally lose his butterflies during the game...hope you've got your net with you!

Secondly, we have made some finer changes to mini-games here and there. From Dino Dig to Relay, you will notice some smaller changes and additions throughout. Dino Dig now has a different bone-to-rock ratio and a new sweeping game. Relay's 'Double Dash Mode' should also produce more obvious feedback for players. Let us know how it works for you!

And finally, after much demand, we have slimmed down our equipment selection process! Simply pick your equipment once for a session and we will never ask you again. And if you need to change it, we give you the option on the game selection screen. Easy peasy!

As always, we appreciate your feedback, so if you or your kids have some ideas or thoughts as to what changes or additions you would like to see or even new game ideas--free free to send them along!

Another version with new fixes and performance improvements!

Jul 29
2019
Version 3.8

Greetings families! This build fixes a bug where the AR moment in Collectobots was freezing the game. A naughty bug indeed, but should be all taken care of!

You will also notice, we've made accessing specific pieces of equipment for selection more 'obvious' during playground selection. This should hopefully help better represent more of the specific items at your playground during play!

-Big bug fix for Collectobots AR Moment. The AR moment used to hang the game, but no longer...all fixed.
-Rotating Catalog: we've added a rotating catalog menu to help promote exploration of other titles.
-PLAYTRACKER USERS: Any remaining PlayTracker users, please be reminded that Biba games no longer work with PlayTracker, which has since been discontinued.

Version 3.4

We've made a series of updates that speed up the app and have brought in a slew of new features! Changes include the following:

PLAYTRACKER USERS! Given that more users have been using our in-game activity tabs as the primary means of tracking their childrens' play activity, we will be formally retiring the PlayTracker app and all associated services. If you are a current PlayTracker user, you will notice that PlayTracker no longer functions with this version (or future versions) of our games. To transition any older users, we will be continuing to update the activity tab in our games with more and new play tracking features so that we can unify most of PlayTracker's features into our games without you requiring multiple apps!

TREASURE HUNTER UPDATE!--We've made a LOT of updates and fixes to Treasure Hunter to make that experience better than ever before, with new mini-games, level effects and treasure updates! So keep providing your feedback and wish list on what we can do to make Treasure Hunter the best it can be for your kids!

DINO DIG UPDATE!--We've completed an art update of our Dino Dig game including a brand new augmented reality digging moment that pops up mid-game! Try it out!

COLLECTOBOTS UPDATE!--We've finally brought in the augmented reality 'collectobox fixing' mini-game from the former standalone version of the game. Hooray!

More updates to arrive in the coming weeks!

Version 3.3

FOR ALL USERS: PLEASE UPDATE TO THIS VERSION! We've applied some critical fixes for certain models experiencing odd behaviors, including missing game selection tiles and game-load crashes. We've also recently moved our game bundling to a new system so this build will eliminate crashes related to the older bundling system. End-game crashes in Collectobots should now also be fixed.

Furthermore, you'll notice we've started to make some changes to our games, so you can look forward to some upgrades over the coming weeks and months!

Version 2.6

You asked for it and we listened--we've now brought all of our core games into one convenient package so you can manage your Biba games from one location. All of our previous standalone titles are now available through this app from Collectobots to Relay to Dino Dig. This makes it easier for your family to play and easier for us to update with fixes!

AN IMPORTANT NOTE: We will be replacing all current standalone games with this collected version of games! This means although you will be able to retain your current standalone copies of our core games, they will no longer be on the app store nor will they receive further updates. All future core game releases and updates will be made though Biba Playground Games.
