Synopsis

Pirate Attack! (A 3D Virtual Pop-up Book) A 3D Virtual Pop-Up Book by John Matthews

Pirate Attack brilliantly captures the swashbuckling world of the greatest buccaneers. Containing detailed biographies of legendary pirates plus features on their weapons, codes of conduct, and punishments, the result is a compelling portrait of life at sea in a bygone age. Plus there are four spreads in the book that trigger an Augmented Reality experience. Watch two dastardly pirates leap from the pages of the book, raise their cutlasses and engage in a breathtaking duel! It's simple to use. When you reach an Augmented Reality page, just select the relevant trigger card from the wallet at the front of the book, hold it up to your computer's webcam and get set for an interactive pirate experience! Press keys on your keyboard to make the pirates battle, climb the rigging and walk the plank!
