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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Atlantis Odyssey is an adventure game for iOS and Android devices. Kids will see some pop-up pleas to buy in-app currency packages, which are sold in an online store for $3.99-$99.99. They don't have to purchase anything to play, but will probably have to wait at times for items to refill or processes to finish, which can slow things down. Throughout the game, kids will gauge which items make the most sense to remove from their path and make other choices about how to best use their resources. The responsibility shouldn't feel overwhelming, though, thanks to a detailed to-do list and periodic instructions.

What’s It About?
After a plane crash, two characters explore an island in ATLANTIS ODYSSEY. They'll use energy points to remove plants, rocks, and other items to reach new areas. They try to uncover the island's mysteries while checking off to-do list items. After restoring workshops, they'll make materials like wooden boards and rope to help with activities ranging from farming to making ladders and moving objects. Coins earned as rewards for activities will buy store items like a campfire. Gems received from certain quests and leveling up can buy energy.
Is It Any Good?
With a constant stream of activities, and solid guidance on what to tackle next, kids shouldn't get confused during the game. Much of the action in Atlantis Odyssey involves removing bushes, trees, and other items from your path to advance to new areas. Each item requires some energy to remove. They'll earn some energy, too, by completing tasks. To stay on track, they just need to check their to-do list. When kids finish a task, they can click on a button to indicate it's complete and claim coins and stars. As kids complete activities, they'll find out a bit more about who's on the island and other mysteries.
Kids can occasionally play mini-games to earn items, which involve elements like moving birds to sit on a branch with similar birds. One matching-type game can be played once an hour, although the instructions aren't very clear, which detracts from its fun factor, especially since the prizes from those brief games are often much-needed. You can obtain the necessary items for some tasks fairly easily, but others, like gems, are doled out sparingly. As they advance in the game, activities require more steps. Without purchasing any of the additional currency packages that are sold in the in-app store, kids will likely experience some delays. You can easily run out of energy, yet still have more bushes, trees, and other objects left to clear to reach your destination. Despite that general game structure, kids aren't constantly urged to buy something. Extras are certainly offered, and they'll see some reminders about them, but they can get around having to purchase anything if they're willing to wait for their energy to replenish or other actions to be completed. At more than a minute for one energy credit to be refilled, the replenishment process isn't exactly fast -- but that could potentially give kids a reason to take a break from playing Atlantis Odyssey, and ultimately help keep their screen time in check.
