Sure this is marketted as a kid's game, but I am almost 40 years old and I have had alot of fun playing it. I've finished one game and immediately wanted to start another. I won that first one, but it came down to the wire and I only won by meticulously tracking which animals I had talked to and what food they wanted or had eaten, and what rooms I had already searched. So there is a decent logical challenge to be had here.

Add to that the really high audio and visual production values, and this is definitely an app worth it's price.

The only thing I wish they would add are an option to have subtitles for the dialogue, as I hate having to listen to everything to know what is going on. Sometimes you want to play an iPhone game where you can't turn up the volume and you can't do that with this game currently.
