• Play games and practice shapes and patterns with Jake and the crew!
• Read along with an all-new adventure story!
• Collect gold doubloons and use them to personalize your pirate puppet!

It’s a starry night on Pirate Island, and Jake, Izzy, and Cubby are going on a treasure hunt with their new friend, Brightly the firefly. But uh-oh! Captain Hook has overheard their plans and wants to get to the treasure first. It’s up to you to help the crew think fast and find the spots on Cubby’s map.

• Three leveled curriculum activities support shape and pattern identification as well as pattern extension:
-- Shadow Puppets: Drag and drop matching shapes onto Circle Rock.
-- Rolling Hills: Help the crew make a path by completing patterns.
-- Lightning Bugs: Spot and trace shapes in the Cave of the Twilight Treasure.
• Pirate puppets! Trade the gold doubloons you earned in the shape games for fun pirate attire, record a silly pirate phrase, and watch as your puppet dances to lively tunes!
• Two modes of play: Choose Twilight Treasure Hunt to experience the activities weaved into the story, OR, select Jake’s Shape Games to go straight to shape practice.
• Delightful animation and interactive surprises throughout the app.
• Character voices from the show, engaging narration, and exciting music and sound effects.

Customer Reviews

  • Mediocre

    by Court Collins

    I gave this a 4 because my daughter loves Jake. Just OK, needs more.

  • Good purchase

    by Heather36782

    Kept my easily bored preschooler busy for awhile and she's came back to play it more and more.

    My son has been playing with this app over and over. So entertaining!

  • Boat Load of Fun!

    This is perfect for my little one who loves the cartoon. It's educational AND FUN! He loves the activities and always asks to play them again.

    by Imaginary Eric

    Great app - my nephew love the puppet pirate with his picture on it.

  • Fun with Jake and his crew!

    by imauntie

    My niece loves tapping around the story to see all the cute animations, and making her own pirate! The patterns game on the hills has really helped her recognize patterns.

    by Trilicious

    Cute game but crashes often on my kid's iPad Mini.

  • Fun with music

    by Turk Family

    Educational, beautiful art, fun music, good flow

  • SO CUTE!!

    by Miss-Pixie

    The games are so fun and we can't stop laughing when we watch our puppets with our faces dance! This is so much fun!

  • Poor tech help

    by Sunshine7277685

    The app is a very cute idea. I've had nothing but problems and the tech support has been horrible. Says its a problem with my tablet. Not very helpful at all. I would of rated the app better but due to paying, And not being able to use it is why I rated it the way I did.

  • Underwhelming and crashes

    by Zephyern

    It crashes a lot, but even if it didn't crash still not sure it's worth $2. Buy the jake appisode instead. There's one puzzle game and that's all you get. There's not even much jake content and the random announcer voice is awful. Wouldn't buy this app had I been able to try it first.

  • Crashes

    by Mom Jen

    This app cont to crash. Waste of money. Would like a refund

  • Crash

    by poohbear.girl

    Lost $2.99. This app won't even open and my 3 year old is devastated.

  • Wish I could give it ZERO!

    by Jkrsw1ld

    This app crashes all the time. How disappointing!! Not only is my son upset but to think that I actually spent money on this. This needs to be fixed ASAP.


    by Ptclkccrc

    Just bought this and app crashes when we try to open games. Super frustrating. Waste of money.

  • OK App, wrong size

    by NicmlNH

    The app is fine but the description says it's just over 200MB and it's takes up 963MB on my Mini. Too big!!

  • Doesn't Work!!!

    by The Harrell's

    I'm disappointed that I paid for this app and it continues to crash! Please fix it so my 4 years old son can play it!

  • Stuck in installation

    by Muqtadar Khan

    Bad app. Keeps looping through installation and never finishes. Bad experience. Don't get this app until problems fixed.

  • Please fix

    by Diananayeli

    I just bought this app last night.. My daughter hasn't been able to play at all, since it keeps closing for no reason. Please fix! So she won't cry anymore

  • Shuts Down

    by Nick RC North

    The story is great, but when i go to the shape part, it shuts down every time. Daughters really not happy. Any fix suggestions...

  • Crashes

    by Joeypenu

    ThIs app crashes every time I try to play something with my daughter. I try to play shapes and as soon as I click a destination it says loading then goes to my desktop! Agh very frustration!

  • Crashes and is very slow

    by Mego120205

    My daughter was so excited to play this game but it's very slow and constantly crashes.

  • How do people think this is good?

    by Home grown

    - The story crashes 100% on iPad 1 - The story won't save your progress, you always have to start at the beginning, so becomes quickly unattractive - The learning modes are trivial at best Yes, my daughter also loves the cartoon series, but if you take out the skinning of the app, you realize it's pretty terrible.

  • Doesn't Work

    by Latea1999

    I wish I could give this app a higher review, but it keeps crashing! Please fix this problem so my son can enjoy this app.

  • Does not work

    by NahSteve

    This game continually closes.. Nothing but the story will work. Please fix

  • Doesn't work

    by Cal4338

    After clicking on an activity (ex: shape matching) the app reverts to iPad home screen.

  • Disappointing

    by Grumpy1492

    App continually crashes in the Shapes section. Troubleshooting tips didn't help. The story and puppet sections worked fine.

  • I want my money Back

    by jh386

    I down loaded it on my I pod and it does not work. you try and load a game and it brings you back to the main icon. Don't waste your money

  • Money back?

    by Tldracerx

    Bought this app for my daughter and the app doesn't even fit to the screen on my 5s. It cuts off half of the words. They also need to put the disclaimer closer to the top that it doesn't work on the iPad 1.

  • I want my money back

    by Yony35

    I downloaded this game in my songs iPod and it does not open for the activities as much as you try does not work and I paid for the app I need an answer as soon as possible.
