    Super!

    This game kept my daughyer and I entertained for over an hour. We had a blast. It brought back great memories for me. The graphics are great and gameplay was very smooth. Worth more than 99 cents but I am thrilled to have picked it up on sale. Since each time you play your outcome is different it will keep the game fresh and exciting.

    So much fun!

    I bought this app for my nook Tablet and also for my 8 year old son's nookCOLOR. We both LOVE it! I have fond memories of this game from when I was young, and it obviously was much less visually appealing back then, but still fun! I really enjoy playing it again and watching my son enjoy it as well. We have had no problems with the games on running on our devices...they've run perfectly smoothly.

    Gotta have wifi to play it

    I have to agree with the previous reviewer who rated this low because it requires wi-fi access eveytime you open it - even though the gameplay itself does not need online access. The nook is not a 3G device that connects to the cellular phone network, so you can only play this where you can connect to a wi-fi access point. Not good. I'm glad I only paid $.99, but I wouldn't have bought it at all if I'd known about the wifi thing. That really should be mentioned in the description.

    The reason for the poor rating is when you purchase a game that does not actually need the internet to play it should not require you to have wifi access to prove you purchased it each time you play.

    Meh

    I want to like this game I really do. Unfortunately its nothing more than a few repetitve & mindless mini games. Seriously if I have to fix the wagon again I'm going to light my self on fire and jump out a window.

    I would enjoy this game if only it would work!

    The only reason I am giving this more than one star is because, when the game does work, it is great.

    My issue is that the game freezes after a couple of minutes of game play. Most of the time, it returns to the main Nook menu, but sometimes the animation freezes entirely, and I have to reboot my Nook Tablet to fix it.

    Also, the game auto-saves, so there is no way to save your progress between auto-save points (to guard against losing your progress should the game freeze again).

    I would appreciate an update to address these problems.
