Reviews:

Discovery School

"The plot is faintly similar to that of the Zoombinis, and the test children found it totally engaging. Making monsters that animate upon completion went over extremely well with two 8 year old testers."

"Parental Controls can be accessed after sign-in and are quite detailed and allow for some customization of play. Parents can decide whether the math problems should be read aloud automatically or only upon request, whether the length of the mission should be long or short, and whether to focus on certain types of problems. Additionally, for each activity, any given topic (like odd/even, or percentages) can be either selected or de-selected."
