The app has been adapted from an original children’s book and it takes the book’s unique approach to storytelling and works it perfectly into this digital adventure. As Treasure Kai is hunting for the lost gold he will get to choose to open one of several treasure chests. The choices he makes will determine the path the rest of the story takes. The treasure chests are shuffled each time you begin the story so don’t think you’ll have a pattern figured out after just a few times through the app. Click here to read the whole review.

It has a shade that looks like a globe and tapping on it turns the page dark except for the whites of Kai’s eyes.
