Mostly cool

My young children love this app. However, when the four year old holds it close so that he can see to get the details, he often touches the edge of the dig site and it starts it all over causing frustration. Aside from this it is easy to use and very cool.

Amazing and very realistic!

I LOVE this app! I’m a teacher, and this is a great way to introduce students to the process of extracting dinosaur skeletons. I like that there are facts for each dinosaur, and time period that they existed. It’s a perfect (and fun) example of showing kids how negative numbers on a number line work.

Fun for everyone!

I love this dinosaur fossil digging simulator and my kids do to! Most AR games either look cool or do something interesting this one does both. The animation is top notch and the digging game is very well made.
