'Science Teacher Says Thumbs Up'

'As a middle school science teacher, I would say that The Pack is simple, yet challenging. I have been playing for a few months
and will now introduce it to my students.\n\nThe game will support my students in their understanding of algorithms and
computational thinking as they use creatures to crea

'Great game! Beautiful and creative!'

'This is a wonderful game for my kids, but I wound up loving it as well! The algorithms are a great way to get kids thinking.
Great job!\n\nI’m not sure how to reach the developer, but it does eventually dead end with somebody telling you to plant a
forest no matter how many trees you plant. Maybe

'Cute, fun, relaxing!'

'My son and I love playing this game together! It’s so relaxing and challenging in just the right ways. We can build and try out
different algorithms to solve the problems, like how to find and gather a seed that is out of reach. I’m drawn to the idea of
restoring natural land much more than the

'Simple and relaxing'

'I love this game because the graphics are appealing and smooth (and cute!). The concept is nice and after reading the “app of
the day” article I realize it is basically a time consumer. I think the movement and goal vagueness is intentional to get kids
to use their minds to figure out what to d

'I really like this app'

'The only reason it isn’t getting five stars is because of a bug in the game. \n\nAt the end of my game the little dude I’m
supposed to be following around stops and asks for water in the area, so I provide water, then he asks me to plant stuff so I do
that too, and finally he says let’s keep

'Solid, but simple.'

'A wonderful completely free game for someone looking to get into algorithmic thinking.\n\nThe controls are kinda wonky but you
get used to them.\n\nMy big issue is that I can’t seem to find any sort of conditionals, loops, or ANY branching logic. Which
means all my guys can only chop down trees w

'Engaging, fun, eco-conscious game!'

'The Pack is not only a gripping puzzle, it also challenges players to consider the ecological impacts of agriculture and finite
resources. All in all, a great game with an important message!'

It’s okay

I really like this game but it constantly closes out of it while I’m playing. It’s very hard to get anything done when it is
constantly shutting down.

Needs a little more guidance

I've been playing this for a few days now-- apparently I added too many creatures to my pack and I don't have room for any new
ones. I did not know this was possible as it wasn't presented at any time during the game. I like the game, but I don't have an
unlimited amount of time to figure every sing

No Way to Contact Developers

Hi...You’re game is really cute and definitely has potential. There are a few problems, starting with...

1) you have no contact method, anywhere. If I find a bug, who do I tell? If I have a suggestion, where does that go?

2) Settings. Seriously, not everyone is going to be comfortable with any

It’s a good app from what I’ve played so far, just extremely annoying. The problem is that it doesn’t have a rotate camera
button. You face whatever direction your character moves, which is very annoying when trying to move or tap in places.

Pretty much I’d love to be able to rotate the camera with
