What parents need to know

Ease of play

The app is very easy to use as long as you can read the instructions: each level includes its own instructions for how it will work. There are three difficulties and 24 levels, which are unlocked as each level is completed. The "crazy" level is quite difficult, but the difficulty level ramps up gradually.

Violence & scariness

One of the 24 levels involves tapping a button that says "Bang!" when a man icon appears. The icon is the traditional one used for restrooms, and after tapping "Bang!" it disappears.

Privacy & safety

Pretty safe. Occasionally at start-up the app will ask if you would like to rate it. Tapping "Sure!" takes you to the iTunes store to submit a rating and review. Otherwise, there are no links to anything outside of the app.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that 0.03 seconds is a game that tests reaction times via a series of different mini-games. There isn't much content that is inappropriate for young children, but because of the diffculty of some of the tasks and the necessity of reading the instructions for each game, younger children may not be able to play without a lot of help. One of the 24 levels involves tapping a button that says "Bang!" when a man icon appears.

QUALITY
 

0.03 Seconds tests your reflexes in a variety of ways: tapping when the circle turns from red to green, typing in a series of numbers accurately, catching chickens as they race across the screen. Each game has a benchmark for passing, and then awards you between one and five stars depending on how quick or accurate you are. The mix of games means that not only do you need to be physically fast, but you have to think fast as well. The game is simple to play, graphics are well-done, and the highest difficulty level is extremely challenging. It's fun and addictive, particularly if you're trying to get five stars on each level.
