Customer Reviews

I am in love with this app! :)

I love how easy it is to navigate through the environment in this app. The graphics are very crisp and the subtle touch with the ocean sound on the pier really adds realism to the gameplay. This app is a very educational and beautiful and I would highly recommend it. I would recomend VNurse lite also from this developer.

Nice educational app

This app is intended to be educational and fun. It is a 3D environment that allows kids to learn about oceanography with information they'd have to study for class. It makes the class material fun to read and learn. Nice app.

Exploding fun

I love this game. It is awesome. I love the fishing in the game. This game is perfect for learning and education for children. This is a great game by NSU and CGS gaming and simulation. Special dedication to my mom who helped make this game and put it on the App Store.
