Ratings and Reviews

App keeps freezing


App keeps going blank when chase is played. Only had it for an hour.

A win for Rescue Bot tots,

Olives are yucky

Always on the hunt for Rescue Bots stuff & this has kept my 4 yr old nephew engaged for an afternoon. Good mix of story, which is kind of comic book style, plus 'counting' & math types of activities. Characters are voiced and fun! Had issues on my mini iPad but with latest update NOW works well. When I complained about the last build, the app people emailed me to say they were fixing it and then actually did. That was what I found most exciting! ;)

Interesting but unreliable


My 6 year old son has tried to play the game but the screen in my IPhone goes blank when progress goes to the freeze scenario. Sent an email to playdigital but didn’t hear back from them.

Update: December 20th. Got an excellent response from digital play. They are very interested in working on the problem abs were very nice about trying to help. I feel pretty good about making progress in getting a fix for a game that is interesting and fun for my 6 year old.
