Auto started game on installing from playstore, into storyboard. I completed first task. Second task to interview. Discovered I couldn't zoom-out or reduce the game screen size to find the game-buttons to either Pause or Stop the game. I rebooted the game twice & both times it refused to shut-down. I uninstalled the game from mobile. Shame as lovely graphics & I do enjoy an adventure puzzle game.

This game is a delightful educational piece for children. It has easy mechanics for game play like a point and click adventure. The storyline is well plotted out and your progession relies on providing correct answers to problem solving different word based tasks and simple math based tasks. So far even as a adult, I have really enjoyed the plot and real life history lessons of characters of great importance. The additional money you pay to unlock the full game seems well worth it.

Easy, fast pace game for children. No problems until case #25. Not able to repair the boat. The missing pieces won't click into place. Please fix.
