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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Trivia Crack is a competitive trivia game that pits friends against friends (or strangers). The game requires an email address or Facebook integration to play, so although there's not any truly objectionable content, the app is not especially appropriate for young kids. That's not a problem, though, as some of the questions asked likely will stump younger players (and more than a few older ones). There's the opportunity to buy in-game coins with real-world cash for an advantage, though that's not essential to winning the game.

What’s It About?
Players answer a series of trivia questions in an effort to collect character "crowns." Answer three questions correctly and you're able to attempt to add a character to your collection (by answering a question in that category). Win six crowns and you've won the game. When you miss a question, your (human) opponent gets a chance to answer as many questions as she or he can. You can play against strangers but are unable to message each other through the game, reducing the threat that strangers could make contact with minors. Users also can submit their own questions.
Is It Any Good?
Taking a competitive page from Words with Friends and Candy Crush Saga, TRIVIA CRACK puts a winning formula on a new type of game. Answering trivia questions on the whole can be a fun way to test yourself and maybe learn something too, but when you make it competitive, it raises the stakes and makes it a lot more fun. In all honesty, there's nothing particularly new here, but the game is so well-designed it makes the lack of innovation less noticeable. It's a wonderfully social game that will push you to scour your brain for information, rather than simply match three similarly colored items.
