Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Engages imagination

Our 6 year old was immediately into this game, and loved that he can design "a whole robot army" for each one of the members of his family. He was talking non-stop as he played it for the first time. The open-endedness of the app seems like it would have a lot of appeal for any child interested in device-building. It's fun to see him engege "how well" his design does on the courses.

A little dull

Didn’t provide more than 15 minutes of entertainment on first pass and my 4 year old just “didn’t get it”. ITunes reviews were probably a little more accurate here than Commonsense - not worth the $3.
