Is It Any Good?
AWESOME PENGUIN looks cute and has super-simple gameplay that just about anybody of any age can handle, but that's about all it has going for it. You flick penguins into a bunch of disc-shaped candies and watch them all bounce around; points are scored each time two discs bump. And that's it. You get five penguins per game, and it's possible that you'll grow bored with the game before you even reach your fifth penguin. The app may be best enjoyed by young kids who just like to watch the commotion.

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.
