Nostalgia trip

I’m 24 and love Arthur like another reviewer here and still actively watch the show. This game is fun and cute, however it can get kind of repetitive pretty quickly, and I wish there was more to unlock/win from doing well at the games. When you get to a certain point it’s actually really difficult, and if it’s difficult for a grown adult it might be too overwhelming for a child once you reach a certain level. I also wish you could choose which mini game you want to play, even if it’s just in a free play/open ended mode. Otherwise this game is great and a nice way to pass the time.

I love this game.

I love this game. I'm a 24 year old who loves Arthur and still watches it. Reminds me of my childhood. I have an iPhone 7plus and it keeps making it crash and slow down. Isn't there a way you can update it or something so it doesn't do that anymore?

love it

My toddler loves it. It is still a little hard for him to do on his own but we do it together. There is a bug in the library game and he isnt a fan of the piano game but we love all the other games. It is very cute.
