I was on this website and found the top 50 educational games list. I decided to check it out, and found this game. I decided that I HAD to try it. I made an account with a parent's help, and also showed my uncle. If you're looking for a professional game maker, this is not the game for you, but if you're a kid who's interested in making your own games, this is perfect for you.

Violence: Some of the bad guys is the games have lasers.
Consumerism: You can buy the full pack of the game for $19.95, which is advertised on the site. You can also buy smaller packs for $1.99 or $2.99.

I might be nine years of age, but I am at 7th grade level in all education :)

I played this at school one day and these boys said "Why would a 11 year old play this?" (I am 5'3)

I told them my age and showed them the game, and we didn't get off 'till the end of lunch period. The boys absolutely loved it and I loved it too :).

Great game. Good intentions. Good sense of adventure/peace of mind, and I think it should be for 6+ :)

Good messages, but old site design.

The website seems like it hasn't been updated since 2013, and it uses flash, which makes it a hassle to use. The storylines are confusing and boring. Once you get through the stories, it is fun to make games on it.
