Ratings and Reviews
I am glad this is now in app version!! I grew up playing this game on CD-ROM. I am sooo excited that now I can share it with my kids! Great game and great value! Definitely a good buy.
Hoping this will get fixed in an update
Uh so the sound won't work, but if that somehow was fixed these were my favorite as a kid... I want to use this but seeing as it has no sound.... I'm super frustrated that I just paid 5 bucks for something we can't use.
Love the books
Please add more.
