Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

Kids follow the adventures of Tom, Lea, Spoon, and Scrabot in the Caribbean as they find buried treasure and thwart a band of naughty kids who are their adversaries. The reading level is suitable for 6- to 8-year-olds, although parents can help younger kids read but have them exercise their deductive abilities. Each of six chapters requires kids to solve a puzzle by "cutting" out and "pasting" the right object needed into the story. If kids choose the wrong object, they can earn points to try again by playing one of three games: a simple tower defense game, a rhythm game, and tilt game that uses the device's accelerometer. 

After the first run through, kids are encouraged to try the game in French or to try the detailed version where they have to not just find the right object, but also the page where it would fit best. All in all, this is a well-done game that will engage younger children
with sound, music, and animation, including a short movie "reward" when
they solve the puzzles.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
