A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The matching and memory games are kindergarten-level easy. Navigation is sometimes confusing, though, and sometimes there's no way to back out to the main menu without relaunching the app.

Violence
Sex

Relationships are limited to matching girls with boys they like, resulting in "adorable" couples.

Language
Consumerism

Material possessions are heavily emphasized, but there are no ads or outside links to product pages.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that his game is loosely based on the 1995 teen movie starring Alicia Silverstone as a well-meaning matchmaker. Unlike the movie, which was considered a successful remake of Jane Austen's Emma, Clueless the game doesn't have much emotional depth, just fashion, dating, and makeover exercises. On the upside, the main character is very considerate of others' feelings.

Is it any good?

Clueless is a dress-up and BFF game. In timed mini-games you recreate ensembles from memory, give cute gifts, and find dates for friends. Fashion faux pas are met with spoken Valley Girl "Ewwww"s. Level up from the classroom to adventures at the mall and parties. The colorful graphics, very basic animation, and perky sitcom-like background music is pleasant enough, but only tweens will be entertained for long.
