Quite a cool set
" The minifigures of this set are very good - Jack, Spencer (the ghost dog) and Parker (although these three are used in pretty much every hidden side set) Captain Jonas (both his haunted and not haunted forms are absolutely incredible, love the octopus arms) and Jonas jr (the innocent civilian of the set, an alright minifigure).
The side builds of this are also very nice, including a kayak for Jack, Parker and Spencer to row along in; an albino/ghost crocodile/alligator; and some terrain to act as a stand for the wrecked boat. I really like this because it makes the whole set into a display piece, and also the rock in the middle can pop up to reveal a ghostly/possessed face underneath.
The main build of the set is very nice also, although I am a bit upset about the number of stickers used instead of prints. In fact, I do not think there is a single printed piece on the boat apart from the commonly used 2x2 slope piece. The front part of the boat is really the part where someone would control it, and the back is where they would keep the shrimp/fish they have caught. 6 pieces are used to make shrimp in the back, which I think is a nice little detail. The spinner thing (used to scan for gloom in the app) also sits on the back of the boat, representing (I think) net or rope. The boat can easily spilt in two, which I think is pretty cool for when they get shipwrecked.
I'm quite disappointed with how much of the set works with the app. The kayak, croc/gator and terrain are completely ignored and you only ever interact with the boat. In addition to the boat being the only thing you interact with, the only thing to interact with is the spinner thing (for scanning for gloom) and putting a minifigure on a brick to scan. It's a shame :(.
Overall, I think that this set is quite nice (and a fun build), although doesn't interact with the app as much as I thought it would. A strong set, although not the strongest of the wave (and that's not the set's fault - it's just that the other sets set quite a high bar that I do not really thing this set meets.) "
I would recommend this to a friend!

Pretty Good :)
" I think that this set is a great set for the smallest of the range! It has great minifigures (Jack, who is unfortunately not exclusive and pretty common; JB, who only comes in this set and the bus in the first wave; Mr Elton/Douglas who sort of comes i the stunt truck, although this time he has hair - and he also contains a possessed face and incredible hair; and Spencer, the ghost dog, who is an excellent piece.) Overall, the set is a pretty good lab, including a 3d printer with something in it, jugs of chemicals (which you can move around to interact with the app), that spinning thing (also used to interact with the app), very lab-ish looking things pointing upwards and a computer. The set does have quite a few stickers, although I do not think they are too hard to apply and add nice details to the set, which I like. Apart from both of the phones, the pizza and the keyboard, everything you see is a sticker.
Overall, I think this is a great set which can be played with and enjoyed both in the real world and in the app. "
