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.

Amazing Game!

I Own This Game and it's Amazing! It takes about 3 days to finish it by just speed running each level, but if you want to clear the game 100%, you will have to take your time and use your skills wisely.
