I'm not sure...

It seems REALLY cool and awesome, but it won't work on my iPad mini! I click through the story part and then there are 4 people with the exclamations marks above their heads. I can only click the girl! Is it suppose to be like that? And then once I click the yes button to play the girls story, it's goes to a black screen. Maybe a dark blue, not sure but the point is that it doesn't work. I hear the sounds but never see any picture. Please fix that. It's seems like a cool game.

Awesome App!

This game is great!! It has incredible graphics and a detailed plot. the use of graphic novel format keeps readers engaged. It's very educational - I learned a lot about the Mayan civilization while playing! Incredibly accurate, and still fun! Totally appropriate for all ages!

Not worth the stars until it is fixed.

I am only giving this app one star because I can not post this review without it. It is not worth any stars because I can not even start the game past the opening scene. I am having the same trouble as the other reviewer about only being able to touch of the girl's exclamation mark and then a black screen coming on and not advancing to the next steps of the game. Please fix this game so I can try it and change my rating. Thanks.
