Too bad not available for mobile devices :-(

I bought this thinking that my grandchildren would enjoy it like I enjoyed Highlights For Children’s hidden objects pages as a child. It is fun and very challenging, but alas, I will not be able to share it with them because I don’t usually carry my computer when I travel, just my mobile devices. I have 10 grandchildren and only one lives close and he is too little to enjoy this yet. I’m not sure I would have bought it had I looked at the system requirements first because I don’t have a lot of time to (waste) spend playing games at home but made the assumption that I could play while traveling.

Hey! Just to clarify; the game IS available on iPad and iPhones (search for it on the App Store there!) but it's just not included with your Mac App Store purchase. I wish this was different, but this was a decision by Apple, and not something I can help. -Adriaan

Well thought out and really fun to play! Love the sound effects and all the interactions you can do with this game. I am almost done and wish there was more. I have an idea that maybe after you finish a level you can unlock not only the next destination but also maybe another list for that same board. There is so much going on that you could make the list longer. I do hope you install updates with more pages to do, it would be sad if this is all.

We like bananas!

Absolutely stupid! Wonderous, Creative, Whimsical, Brilliantly stupid. Good concept, adventurous rendering, and a soundtrack that makes it really all worthwhile. Something that lets your common thoughts go sit in a bag. So much of life, so much of even games, take themselves so seriously. This does not! Good medicine. Only have played a short while and am laughing already. And navigation, game play all thus far is excellent. It works. It is fun.
