hmmm don't see how this would work on iphone. There was a reason why the books were pretty big, so that you could see everything. The small iphone screen just doesn't seem to do it for me =/

My 6 year old plays this on the PC. Like... constantly. Think of it like Myst for kids. Puzzles and such to solve getting from room to room. Production values are top-notch on the PC one at least, and this looks similar.

Do you think it's good for a 10 year old? My daughter loves the yard sale games. I don't see it in Canada yet....is it out in the US ?

She'll probably enjoy playing it through once or twice. If it's like the PC game they mix it up a bit each time so you have to find different things to solve the puzzles.

I'll TOFTT it tonight and see how similar it is to the full-size PC version. Though $3.99? Sheesh.
