A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The controls are simple, and there is a "how to play" section that explains everything. It can be difficult to aim, though -- particularly the oven fan "Mega Bonus" target.

Violence

The point of the game is to fling various fruits into blenders or onto a cutting board to be sliced up. The fruits all have eyes and mouths and react to their deaths. The optional special effects add bits of fruit and juice that spray out of the blenders. Some of the fruits scream and yell as they're being flung.

Sex
Language

The Annoying Orange sits up in the corner and makes remarks while you play. There is no profanity, but he makes fun of everything while the fruit is being blended.

Consumerism

There are links from the app to both the developer and the Annoying Orange pages on YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. There is also a "What's New" link on the home screen that shows another game by the developer.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

The strawberry asks, "What's a strawberry daiquiri?"

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Annoying Orange: Kitchen Carnage is an arcade toss-an-object game with a lot of cartoon violence. The violence is done to fruits with faces. There is one verbal reference to a daiquiri in the game. The app has links to the Annoying Orange YouTube page as well as links to the developer's website and other apps. The game uses Game Center to track scores and achievements.

Is it any good?

ANNOYING ORANGE: KITCHEN CARNAGE is based on a series of online videos featuring a talking orange and various other fruits. The game works like the Paper Toss app, but instead of crumpled balls of paper you're flinging fruits with faces; and instead of a wastebasket, you're aiming for blenders, cutting boards, and oven fans. The Annoying Orange sits in the top corner making snarky comments and laughing at the proceedings, while the fruits scream in terror, anticipating their gory deaths. The game itself can be quite fun and challenging -- as you score enough points, additional fruits and blenders are added, and some of the blenders move to make them harder targets. However, because of the various links to other sites and the glorification of violence (albeit to fruit), this game is not appropriate for younger kids.
