Too violent

My 9 year old tried this and stopped immediately. A puppet facing death and dismemberment from rats, bats, and spiders is not an incentive for learning. Too violent. We deleted it 15 minutes after downloading it.

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

This engaging and educational hangman game uses the traditional format with the occasional bit of quirky content. Atomic Hangman Jr is a fun way to learn new information, and most kids will delight in all the many fates that befall their puppet. It has a Road Runner/Wile E. Coyote feel as objects crash down with a "Wham!" comic book bubble attached. The multiplayer option is a nice addition, but there aren't always others available to play against and it may be frustrating if young kids are paired with older kids or adults. The biggest concern is the educational content itself: Due to the source material, definitions aren't always as clear as you would find in a dictionary, and circular definitions appear regularly, though no glaring errors were found during the review process.

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.
