What's New in Version 2.4
Misc. bug fixes.
Overall really great
Several fun and instructive games, with some bugs and a few oversights. For the developers: the pile up game is great but the handling of the "small"states is not good. They get stuck behind bigger states and when they fall off, beyond the player's control, they still get called up despite no longer being in the board. Presumably, they are still "falling" but it seems unfair the player gets penalized for this. Capital drop: great game but when the writing is Isidro down it's awkward to have to turn the phone upside down to read the capital name. Finally, once the player had earned all 50 states, he or she cannot access the already won states' capitals by tapping in the map. They're all gone and the map reset. It would be useful to have flags and capitals if already won states for learning and reference. Thanks again for a great app!
My kids love it😛
My kids love this app their teacher approved it to count as studying and will let them being their tablets to school now. It's also great that you don't need internet connection to play it so my kids can play it when we're on the way to school on the day of their geography test. Anyways it's a great app you should try it it's totally worth $0.99 my kids love it it's great to help them study. I know when you first get it and you play it your like this isn't what I want but when you unlock 10 states you unlock the bonus game map it out which helps my kids the most rather then the regular game itself. But anyways it's a great app I even play it myself😛😊
Stack the states is a cheap game
This game is great in terms of learning ... But in some places this game is " cheap "!!!
I get the part where you have to place the states on the map... And I agree with that learning skill. But I think that the producers of this game should focus on the other game. The part of one game is titled " Puzzler " . Puzzler is where you have to connect the puzzle and the missing pieces. Kids get soooo frustrated at the lousy work done on it! The puzzle pieces move around and won't allow you to do some things.... And another good part of this game is the part titled " Stack The States "
And that's an awesome game. To round this review up I give this game a 3 star because it's in the middle. Some parts need little details done and some are great.
