Ratings and Reviews
As an educator and a parent this is a great app. My 9 year old son loves it. Wish there was more than just the three episodes. Great combination of todays kids and Aboriginal culture. Love it.
Awesome. Groundbreaking. 11 year old kids from a remote town in the Pilbara telling a ripping yarn in a brand new medium.
Very impressed! This is such an awesome app :) very engaging, love the story, artwork, characters and setting. Even more impressive is the effort that it must have took to achieve this! Great work guys! I look forward to the future episodes :)
