A lot or a little?

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

Educational Value

Created for entertainment and not intended for learning.

Ease of Play

Tricky to control your movement with one hand and your actions with the other, but most kids will get the hang of it after the first few "training" rounds of the game.

Violence

You can slide tackle to steal the ball from an opponent, but that's more violent in real life than in the game. 

Sex
Language
Consumerism

While there are no in-app purchases, the main characters are from several Cartoon Network shows, who are connected to a whole universe of other apps, games, and toys. 

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Cartoon Network Superstar Soccer: Goal!!! - Multiplayer Sports Game Starring Your Favorite Characters is a reboot of an earlier Cartoon Network app that features upgraded graphics and slightly easier-to-handle gameplay. Kids create an avatar name for their character and then choose a Cartoon Network character as their team captain, and they can play against the computer or another online player. Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the types of information collected and shared.

What's it about?

Characters from Adventure Time to Steven Universe duke it out on a 3D soccer field in CARTOON NETWORK SUPERSTAR SOCCER: GOAL!!! - MULTIPLAYER SPORTS GAME STARRING YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTERS. To begin, users select an avatar name and choose their favorite Cartoon Network character to lead their team. Within the game, users slide up, down, left, and right to move their character, and they tap several buttons to select moves such as slide tackling, passing the ball, and shooting goals. After a series of "training" rounds to learn the controls and the game's strategy, the gameplay gets tougher and users can continue to play against the "computer" or play anonymously against another online user.

Is it any good?

While the graphics get a worthy update, the controls are still pretty unwieldy, and the soccer gameplay isn't especially exciting. Kids may certainly find it amusing to pit familiar characters against each other in Cartoon Network Superstar Soccer: Goal!!! - Multiplayer Sports Game Starring Your Favorite Characters, but there's otherwise not much to it. It's pretty inconsequential to ignore the instructions during the training rounds; in general, it's easy to just shoot goals endlessly and continue to rack up a score while computer-generated team flails. Online opponents have greater potential as challengers, but the game isn't especially hard or rewarding, so it's not clear that kids would stick with it once the initial novelty of the characters wears off. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about consumerism and marketing to kids. Is Cartoon Network Superstar Soccer: Goal!!! - Multiplayer Sports Game Starring Your Favorite Characters just advertising the Cartoon Network products, or do fans of the shows genuinely want to extend the experience into an interactive adventure? 

  • Talk about why it's fun to play sports games on tablets -- and how it's even more fun to go play these games in real life! Join your kids for a real-life soccer game. If integrating some of the imaginative play from apps like this helps hold their interest in outdoor play, talk to kids about the adventures their favorite characters might embark upon in your own backyard.
