Rated 5 out of 5 by MommyTeacher Great game
My almost 5 year old son loves this game. At first he didn't realize how to get to the different games so his interest wasn't very high in it. I couldn't believe he didn't want to play it more and was picking other games above it as he LOVES to watch this show on TV. I put it in and played it with him for 5 minutes and realized he didn't understand that the post with various circle pictures were different games. Once I showed him the 5 (I believe it's 5) different games within Jack and the Neverland Pirates it became one of his favorite games to play. I recommend this to any boy or girl that likes the show, enjoys puzzles, or if you want a game that has various games within it rather than just one thing to do.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jezsmommy my son loves it
My son is 2years 5months when his grandparents bought him the leappad 2 for Christmas, he loves "Jake Pirate" so I immediately went out and purchased this game. I like that he has to count the doubloons every time and he is getting the hang of the puzzles. One con is that on the treasure hunt part sometimes Izzy is infront of the item so he can't find it. Also he seems to accidently press the back arrow when doing the puzzle when pieces are placed so close to it. Other than that he loves it. His favorite is the shape jumping game. Great game. Entertains him for a while.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuperAwesomeMom Great Game!
My little guy just turned 4, and he loves this game! He picked it up right away, and was able to show me all the games to play and how to navigate through the different pages. The game helps with critical thinking, as he has to go in and find clues and solve puzzles to get treasures. There is a 'treasure room' he goes to that shows what he has found, and it motivates him to go find more. There are fun characters and little songs, and it really encourages him to interact! My little guy can play this for hours!

Rated 4 out of 5 by MinivanOfFury It's ok
My son is three and he likes the series and seemed to be moderately entertained by the game. It's very well done, but there isn't a lot to it; the mini-games shown in the trailer and some stylus-tapping screen animations are about it.
Kids can find a variety of treasure maps, which are then assembled like a jigsaw puzzle. Once built, the treasure map reveals a scene and you're given instructions like, "Find three round coconuts." Not bad, but not thrilling, either. Best for a 3 or maybe 4 year old.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mama2Boys Great for Jake fans!
My two boys love Jake and this is a great game for them. It is educational and fun. My three year old was able to play the game by himself after I explained each section to him. The only problem I have with the game is that when looking for treasure, Jake and his crew will ask for you to find something they are standing in front of and you cannot see. That is the only time my son gets frustrated with playing the game. After so many taps of trying to find it, the game will have a yellow circle on top of a character that is in front of the object. After you click on it, the crew moves over and you see what they were asking you to find during the hunt. Other than that, it is a great game. I would recommend it to others, especially if their children are fans of Jake and the Neverland Pirates.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 4boysmom Good fun for boys
I bought this for my 4 year old son and he likes it but I was really expecting a total love-fest. It's too challenging for my younger son (just 3) right now but I'm hoping he grows into it because he loves Jake. I'm happy with this app. It has good games and fun characters but I wish there it was more instantly appealing to my sons with some easier games to begin with. I would definitely recommend this game bc overall I think it has solid grow with my child elements and has characters they love.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SurfCity My son's favorite game!
My son is over the target age range for this app at nearly 8, so I was a little reluctant to buy it. He is a big fan of this show, so we decided to give it a try. We have several games for him that he likes, but this is his favorite.
He seemed to get tired of Digging for Dinosaurs pretty quickly along with Magic School Bus Oceans, even though he loves dinosaurs and other Magic School Bus products. I feel like this game was a better value in terms of my son wanting to continue playing it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by crossquill Just what they wanted
Jake is my 4 year old grandson's favorite character at the moment. So I went with it! What I am finding is the character games have limited content and flexibility. You are buying the hype not the creative levels of learning. They loved it at first but got bored with it very quickly. Leapster Explorer offers lots of great cartridges that are better suited to bright creative kids! I am now buying multi-leveled creative learning games like the puzzles, monsters, and ABC Factory.
