  • No skip/solve for pinball games.

    You need to complete certain pinball games for certain game components but there is no offer to solve for them as there is for other puzzles. Is the fun supposed to be the the story or needlessly fiddling with a silly sidebar game? They need to fix this. If a person wants to complete one and get on with the story there is no alternatative option. Why won’t the fairy creature offer to solve these as with the others? The puzzles shouldn’t be irritating. The idea of a video game should be first and foremost, entertainment.
  • Weirdwood Manor is fantastic!

    At first, I was just looking for something do do, but now I wish I hadn’t because I have no spare time. I’ve completely finished the game and now I’m playing it over and over again. It’s literally taking up all my time and I can’t wait until escape from Weirdwood manor.

    I came across this when I had an assignment for a class to review a picture book app (studying to be a teacher). I had only expected to flip through the first "book" for the paper and I ended up buying the entire series because I became instantly hooked!! The story makes me think of Harry Potter meets A Series of Unfortunate Events meets Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children. It's mysterious enough to constantly keep you hooked, but not so overwhelming that it's confusing or creepy. This is a WONDERFUL app for any kid that HATES reading. The design and interactiveness of the story makes you forget that you're even reading because you get so absorbed in the story. It's easy enough for kids to work the app and read, yet advanced enough that it will challenge their reading skills and adults can enjoy it too. I read somewhere that the developers had said that the next chapter will come out in 2017, and since November is almost over I'm hoping it must be soon! Eagerly waiting to see what happens next!!

  • Review from my Son.

    By Kittycat9
    My son said the book/game was "Awesome"! It only took him a week to finish the entire series. He is hoping that you come out with a new edition soon. Here are his recommendations for updates and/or improvements: Set up adapted sensing challenge levels so kids at any learning level can play along easier side by side. I have a brother with Cerebral Palsy and autism. He loves reading, but games are harder for him. I have autism, too. But I am really good at games and math, not reading as much as him. He's really good at reading biographies and facts. This game is great because we could play together if the challenges would sense how he responds, and adapt to his ability.
  • Second book

    I bought the set. It took forever to download book one (three hours, ON WiFi!) Book two has been downloading since last night, 1% every three hours. No, I am not kidding. Switched to book 3- same issue. I cannot download through WiFi or phone at more than a snails pace.
