Merthyr Tydfil's iron heritage told in 3D game

The history of Merthyr Tydfil's role in the industrial revolution is being told to children in a game on mobiles and tablets.

The free mobile app, developed by a local business, follows the adventures of a 13-year-old boy travelling to the Victorian iron town.

The 3D graphics in Iron also allow the player to walk around a 19th Century farm.

The developer believes it will fill a gap in local history knowledge.
