The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Educational Value

Abduction 2 wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning. Kids will practice manual dexterity a bit moving their device side to side to jump the cow from platform to platform but that's about it.

Ease of Play

A tutorial explains what to do, but controlling the game is easy since players simply tilt the phone to the left or right to control the jumping character.

Violence & Scariness

Some levels contain bombs or spikes that cause the cow to lose a life if touched. Cows also lose a life if they fall off the bottom of the screen, or fall too far a distance without wearing a parachute. There's nothing graphic about these deaths; the level simply restarts.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Abduction! 2 is the sequel to the platform jumping game Abduction! World Attack and features similar graphics and game mechanics. Players control a cow trying to free abducted animals from an alien mothership by jumping vertically on platforms while players tilt the phone left or right to control the direction of the jumps. Cows can succumb to spikes and bombs or fall off the screen, but these "deaths" are not graphic at all and there is no objectionable content. This game was reviewed on a Motorola Milestone.

What's it about?

Kids move their device side to side to hop a cow up from platform to platform. Kids try to collect caged animals while hopping -- avoiding spikes and bombs –- then finish at the checkered banner at top. Kids win medals and stars depending how many animals they save and how quickly they work. Puzzles are organized into geographical groups.

Is it any good?

ABDUCTION! 2 features an Adventure mode with 60 hand-crafted levels that require some puzzle-solving, but players can also opt for Classic mode whose randomly generated levels play just like its predecessor, Abduction! World Attack. There's also a no-pressure Kids mode where it's impossible to fail. The game has been expanded to include almost 40 unlockable animal characters, four mini-games including a 3-D mode (glasses required), and a shop where players can buy dozens of fun accessories like Santa hats, sombreros, and bunny tails. Like the original Abduction, Abduction! 2 is a simple concept that happens to be great fun too.
