Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (1 ):

Candy Train is a great example of a simple concept executed to near perfection. This is certainly not the only app game in which you switch railroad tracks around in order to keep a train moving, but the adorable Candyland-esque visuals, super-simple controls, and smooth, gradual increase in difficulty make this one of the best of its ilk. It also has one extra great feature: the game clearly telegraphs trouble spots ahead, highlighting safe track in pink and placing big exclamation points at potential crash sites. It's user-friendly, incredibly addictive, and can be equally enjoyed by both kids and parents.

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.
