Trying to knock into everything you can as you run through different scenes in this action-focused game can be entertaining -- and surprisingly challenging, due to the goals you're given. In Crashy Cats, players may, for instance, be asked to knock down five electronic items in a round, yet not seem to pass many. They're typically given three tasks, and some need to be completed more than once to eliminate these goals. Players will probably need to practice to master jumping to high areas, and things can take a turn for the worse quickly if they're not paying attention when they land. They may also have a hard time recovering from using some of the bonus abilities gained from special objects, such as a rainbow hoop that provides you with super speed.

As a result, you may need to repeat a scene multiple times to successfully meet the criteria to advance to the next level. And what will keep you on your toes is that obstacles on a level are randomly generated. But when you’re stuck trying to complete goals and racing through the same scene over and over, it can feel repetitive. The ads that pop up between some rounds are another issue, because they start to feel a little invasive. Fortunately, you can close a number of them right away, which helps maintain the playing pace somewhat. At least the controls are sensitive enough to let you perform many of the necessary jumps -- but on smaller devices, such as phones, it's easy to tap too low on the screen and accidentally pause the game as you're trying to jump. If you can look past the ads, the control hiccups, or the repetitive gameplay, you might find some entertaining action as you cause chaos in Crashy Cats.

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.
