Lowbrow, high-pressure app uses gross-out humor.

In-app purchases are a reality of the app world -- and some games handle them better than others. It's hard to think of one that handles them worse than Crazy Hospital!, though. The sheer amount of arrogant greed on display in this app will leave you aghast -- as it offers the smallest of tastes of what it considers gameplay, before forcing you to pay for more or move on. The game counts on kids' attraction to gross-out humor, like farts and burps, to hook them, then counts on their incessant pleading to wear down parents' resistance. But even if you do pay to unlock all of the characters and tools, you're still looking at less than half an hour of gameplay. After that, you can simply repeat what you've already done -- and it's a lot less fun the second time.

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.
