Awesome Reader Girl ,

Best game ever!

This game is fantastic! It is perfect for kids who want to learn about space. And the activities are so fun! It even gives you a look at the size and weight of the planets.🌏🌛 And, you get to make your own rocket ship! The best part is that you get to look inside the planets.

Disturbing, not educational

Bought a bundle of these apps because I thought it would be educational, however there is no explanations or education.. just very detailed cartoons of shark carcasses, bloody meals, craters and garbage hitting planets, putting live animals into the ground and watching them decay, and for some reason you can remove the bones from the animals bodies. What is educational about any of that? This is a very unsettling set of apps and I’m sorry I wasted $10 on them. Two stars for the graphics design, there was great potential ruined by the content.

Developer Response ,

Hi! I am sorry to hear that you are having a negative experience with our apps. Our apps take a discovery based approach to learning and aim to have kids learn through interactions and experiments of their own. For example, students are able to learn about the ecosystem of the coral reef by observing food chains. Or, students can see what happens when a crater hits a planet. For interaction tips and hints, please feel free to check out our handbooks for each app ( Please email us at with any additional feedback.
