    "I love this! This game does two things for my kid: 1. teach them math in a fun and colorful setting; and 2. acts as a starting point to help me get my kid into D&D. okay, that 2nd one's more for me, but it's a start! it also helps me since he can play the app while on the road, making road trips both educational and quiet :D"

    "as an educational app, this is definitely good for learning. as a learning tool for kids, not so much. the app is as boring in presentation as a standard school powerpoint. it is handy to have something to teach the kids when we're not at a computer"
