    My son loves playing The Foos and he'd probably play it all day long if I let him. The stages are challenging, constantly changing and he gets to build his own games. We've had it for 2 years now and I'm amazed by how much this game has evolved. This paid version is much more advanced than the free version.
  • So awsome

    It's pretty good on coding. On some things you create your own level and try to beat it, and there are some better coding games but this one probably fits kids the most.

    Seemed like a good app, but have yet to find out how to cancel, as it is no longer used. Wrote an email to these people on their website and No Reply!! Best not to get roped into this one unless it will be in constant use, and you're not concerned about cost!
