What's New in Version 1.0.2
Updated for the new version of iOS
I agree with the other reviewer that this app would be much better if there were map labels to help identify treasure location, a background statement or two on the items historical significance and a trophy case to display the items. Then it will appeal to both younger and older kids, even to some of us adults.
Waste of money
Not worth paying anything for. Wish I could get my money back on this one. Five year old even said it was boring, finished in a few minutes.
7 year old finished the game in 2 minutes. Total waste of money.
