Ratings and Reviews
Very interactive which is awesome
They love this game, just the down side is when they have to take a break from the game and go back to it, it doesn’t let you. It says on a page saying Name: _______
And then a load of words in a different language. Doesn’t let you press anything like home or maps. So they have to start all over again which then becomes a different story.
Needs an update I think.
Lots of fun, lots like the books
As a life-long fan of the books, it's been great fun watching my son play this. He loves it too and it's now the go-to app when we're out and about and he's needing entertainment!
My daughter is really enjoying the game but has found some of characters are getting their lines in a muddle with other characters and one character (Miss Taylor)has Latin placeholder text. This is during the ‘Pearl Bracelet’ adventure.
