Too-simple game quickly grows repetitive.

There's just not enough to do in CATAPULT MADNESS. If not for the bonus items that you can use to add extra oomph to a flight, there would be nothing but simply launching the catapult. And those bonus items must be purchased with the in-game cash you earn, which means you have to play through a lot of repetitive catapult launches just to earn the money needed to buy a power-up item. Even once you've acquired a lot of power-ups and you can keep your hero bouncing across the battlefield for quite some time, it's not very different -- just longer. There's a cute idea here, but it's begging for a little something more.

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.
