  • Educational but frustrating

    By Dogtags
    The Did You Know info is very informative and both young and old can learn something new. The problem with this game is the boosts. Most games give you a second or two of invincibility after s boost to make sure you don't start in a bad position and have time to react to a situation. Not so with this game. If your boost ends 1/16" in front of an obstacle or enemy, you are going to die. This game feature is very annoying.
  • All you do is run

    If you like Forest Gump...all you do in this game is run and pick up facts along the way. Their other game, frontier heroes has a lot more challenging things to do as you learn about history. Save your money and get that one.

  • Fun & Educational but Repetitive

    By QuirkyCarter
    It's one of those games that is easy to jump right into. The graphics are pleasing and I like the tidbits of information after each completed chapter. However, the entire game is essentially just three very limited play modes repeated for each chapter. I expect kids will enjoy it at first but quickly become bored. Still, it's worth a try because of the educational aspect and because it isn't full of in app purchases. As a sidenote, I really wish developers would create separate controls for music and sound effects. Most of the time, I do not want to listen to the music within an app. However, I usually want to hear the sounds – they don't typically clash with whatever music I am listening to and, when done well, really add to the overall experience.
  • Repetitive game

    By Wolfaaron
    The game becomes boring very quickly because of its limited features. It becomes very repetitive.

  • Don't Play this Game!

    By Lamby2002
    Don't play this game! It's a waste of money and is too difficult.It's not even addicting, unless you count how addicting it is to scream at your device! Waste of time, and more importantly, money.
  • don't waste your money

    I hate this game because it is too difficult. The responsiveness and control of character are terrible. Even when you press to jump you die and start all over. There are no additional lives and no way to regenerate. you can't really get better at it because even if you are playing correctly you still die. I never pay for apps but I took a chance and bought this for $2.99 because it was advertised in history channel as being "educational" and meant for kids. It's not at all. It's actually stupid. Run and try to jump over stuff and die. Repeat. Not fun or educational. It doesn't give you enough success to want to keep playing. The concept is good so it could be a fun game if a lot of improvements were made. Very disappointing!
  • Can't stop playing!
