    I was looking forward to exploring this app with my 4 year old son. Unfortunately, it is virtually impossible to control with the Leap controller. It spins out of control.

    Read the on-screen instructions and enjoy the ride! I hope for more content in the future (and maybe some more graphical features)

    It zooms only out until there is nothing to see. Can't zoom in again. There is something wrong.
