Aj Jump-Disgusting Content.

So I reluctantly gave my daughter $2 for this app. I am a very careful mom so I watched her for a while when she got it. Nervously she told me to go, which made me more worried. Finally, she "jumped" to a certain point where swear words popped out everywhere and the game crashed and had to restart phone. So disappointed..

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (4 ):

With the National Geographic logo, you'd expect more educational content. There is a bit -- a short book and one-minute video -- but kids only read and watch to receive that information. The gameplay is totally separate and pretty mindless. To guide the kangaroo higher, kids must use some strategy, but skill doesn't translate into coins; instead, earning in-game currency is all about how long a kid plays. And it will take quite a bit of playtime to earn enough to deck out the kangaroo in the costume choices and accessory options. Unfortunately, those items are a fleeting investment -- many don't carry over into future games. Though kids may enjoy steering the kangaroo to new heights, disappointed parents might direct their kids elsewhere for more science-infused fun.

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.
