What our experts think
The children who tested the app really enjoyed this imaginary world of wizards and mythical animals. The games are mainly fun rather than educational but do encourage cognitive development by encouraging children to find the longest path connecting the same symbols as well as encouraging their imagination and perseverance.
We like the information provided with the menus to help explain how the cards work.
It would be even better if...
It does take a little while to understand some of the features work – so we would like to see it become slightly more self-explanatory and we would prefer to see no in-app purchasing.
