Students practice reading and deductive reasoning. We really liked how students could choose how the story unfolds as you read. The fact that the app automatically saves your place was a pleasant surprise and made it easy to pick up where you left off.
My nephew reported that he really enjoyed the game once he got the hang of it. My 4th grade nephew stated: "I liked the games and had to find clues so that the character could go to the city hacks. Once I figured out what to do it is a lot of fun and I plan to continue playing."
