Players control a line's direction by clicking on an endpoint they'd like it to go to in this fun, easy-to-play game. Although Dancing Line has a simple concept, it can still get pretty engrossing; the line moves quickly, so players have to make speedy decisions. The graphics are simple, but many aren't completely static; butterflies fly by as you zoom along, for example. With more than 25 worlds to explore and varied difficulty levels, there's plenty on hand to hold your interest.

Players can try again if they smash into a tree or other object, which should help prevent frustration; if you get bored with your current environment, you can skip ahead to another world without having to complete each level in between. Only a few worlds have to be unlocked -- which is another nice touch that should help keep players from getting bored and giving up -- and the music, which ranges from original techno-type tunes to softer piano pieces, is pleasant. All in all, Dancing Line is fun to play; the app's biggest drawback is the fact players can purchase an ad-free option for $4.99, but if they don't, they'll unfortunately see a fair amount of ads -- which can slow things down and make playing less exciting.

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.
