Ratings and Reviews
This is my almost-6-year-old daughter's favorite game. She gives it 5 stars, I would give it 4. I like the puzzles and the way the characters have to go solve other tasks and then go back to interact with characters with whom they've already spoken (esp. in chapter 2), but I don't like having to pay separately for each chapter. If there are more than three chapters, I am not paying over $6 for a game that she solves in a morning. I also don't like some of the language-I don't spend a lot of time scrubbing my kids vocabulary, but there is such an effort to not use "stupid" and it's used here; seems like you could find better alternatives. And why do all of the adults just assume that the kids are dirty troublemakers who cheat, lie, and steal? It's a game, so I can have perspective, and my daughter didn't notice it - just a parental question.
Awesome all around
My daughter loves this game. Honestly she is a little under the intended age as she's only turning 4 in about 2 weeks but she loves the characters and the puzzles.
I myself love the animation style, the character design, and even the voice acting compared to a lot of other children's apps. Good job guys, and I hope you make more games like this in the near future!
Unable to play..
My daughter loved the first episode of shipantics but we can't seem to get this one to work. After playing a little of this one the game froze and then after closing it and trying to start back up it just goes to a white screen and nothing happens. I've tried starting a new game from the same place but no luck.
