This is the best learning game I have ever played and I have only one thing to say......excellent! But I can't just end there because I consider this to be the best free app on the market to date. I give it two thumbs up...make more in various subjects and you will make millions. thank you to the developers for creating it. It is to date the only really fun and actually teaching game on the market for high school and middle school age kids and returning to school adults. We need more games like this on the market, it's makes learning an enjoyable experience that the kids want to keep coming back to over and over again. Not only did I like,play,learn from it but i also memorized and so did my kids. I have always loved history and this app made my kids like history,they never liked history and considered it boring before this app....like i said at the top ..........................................Excellent!

This is a very good yet challenging app. More for high school students and a teacher that takes the time to put together the questions for the students so they can answer them. All together this app is great.

This is an ok app

This app is an ok app because it is like the wheel of fortune except with world history. I didn't really think that this app was that fun. I thought it was ok, but I didn't like it that much.
