Our 11-year-old female child downloaded this game to her phone without our knowledge. She suddenly started asking questions about Kentucky. That caused us to be suspicious, and upon questioning, she revealed a person she had met in the game that had convinced her to text, and she had shared a few (thankfully not explicit) photos! When we investigated and found out this game was the culprit, we realized the in-game chat doesn't save any of the conversations, so in our opinion this is a prime place for predators to roam. In addition, in the general chat channel were a couple of posters asking for nude female photographs! This app is going to be deleted ASAP, unless we decide to try to sting this character texting our daughter, and we encourage other parents to be careful about this app too!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (3 ):

Like many others of its kind, this fight/build/wait/pay model is fun for those who have time and money to burn; however, for many teens, the real strategy is in how to get more money to pay for upgrades. There's nothing here to make the game stand out from the ever-growing pack of action/base-building games, but it's not quite as money-grabbing as some. Single-player elements of the game quickly become difficult, nudging players to fighting against human opponents, where you can pay to pick and choose your enemies (letting you focus on weaker ones to build your own resources). That means if you don't level up quickly, you're bound to be targeted for attack by stronger players. Though you can unlock heroes, they don't really add much to the game. While it's fun to create and build, the game only allows for so much before

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.
