Pretty fun

This game is fun no matter how old you are but I would make a few changes….. one: make the game a little longer.(you can’t really do much) two: I personally would make it a game where you add more things maybe each week or two weeks.(there is no really a lot to play. However, the game randomly end after completing the 3 or 4 short games

Deserves 5 Stars 😜

First off, this game is great. I got it for my sister and she loves it. I have no complaints, but one suggestion. For the voice recording, I find it cute but kind of annoying that the Pigeon always says “I have a frog in my throat.” I think the app should kind of make your voice sound like the Pigeon’s. I know this is complained about often, but THE BUS DRIVER NEEDS A SKIP BUTTON!!! I listen to him OVER and OVER and it also gets annoying!
I know the app won’t have further updates, but I just wanted to point this out in case minds are changed. Other than that, the game is fantastic. My sister and I put all sorts of wacky things into the stories. The game is awesome and it deserves five stars. If you’re reading this, please don’t listen to the bad reviews. 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
