â€śNancy Drew Mobile Mysteries: Shadow Ranch represents a new type of app that could be a big part of the future of leisure books for kids. Shadow Ranch is not quite like other interactive books out today, as it is more like a hybrid between a book and a full-fledged video game.â€ť â€“ Adam Balkin, NY1
â€śThe game is a hybrid storybook and adventure game, incorporating plain text with mini games, some of which flow directly and logically from the story and others which seek to relieve the boredom younger users might feel when confronted with prose.â€ť â€“ Christina Nutt, Gamasutra
â€śUsing text inspired by the original books, the app creates an interactive story for readers. You don't have to imagine you're on the case with Nancy Drew, now you can be part of it as well.â€ť â€“ Michelle Castillo, TIME
