A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The game uses simple touch controls, which it does a good job of explaining. The game is also easy -- perhaps too easy for older Disney fans.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

Players use gold coins when they run out of turns or lives, or need to buy special power-ups. These coins can be earned by playing or watching ads, or can be bought with real money. This game may also prompt players to want to buy the keychains, and other things, that feature these Disney characters.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Disney Getaway Blast is a puzzle game for iOS and Android. The game has no questionable content. But it does have some consumer issues. Players get gold coins by playing, and these coins are used to keep going when they run out of turns or lives, or when they want to buy a special power-up. But players can also get these coins by watching ads or by purchasing them — along with packs of them and power-ups — in the game's store. Players may also want to visit a real store to buy the keychains and other things that feature these famous characters, especially if they look like they do in this game. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared, and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

In DISNEY GETAWAY BLAST, the wizard Merlin sends sentient keychains of Disney characters on a beach vacation. Unfortunately, the resort is a desperate need of repair. It's a good thing Mickey and his pals are resourceful. By solving puzzles in matching bubbles of the same color, you can help Anna from Frozen, an alien from Toy Story, and dozens of other Disney characters turn this dump into a vacation paradise.

Is it any good?

While it's a bit too easy for older fans, or experienced puzzle players, young lovers of all things Disney will find this puzzle game to be challenging and entertaining. Like other matching puzzle games, Disney Getaway Blast has you tapping on colored bubbles when they're next to another of the same color. This removes all of them from the field, possibly completing the objective of the puzzle, removing a wooden piece that's in the way, or satisfying a crab who wants even more of that color bubble. All of this is done so you can help Mickey and other employees of the Disney corporation fix up a beach resort.

What makes this different from similar matching puzzle games, though, is that as you play, you unlock different Disney characters. Each have their own special abilities, which you recharge by matching more bubbles. Mickey, for instance, does a dance that knocks a bunch of bubbles out of the way, while Anna from Frozen hits them with snowballs. But while this does put an interesting spin on things, it's somewhat undermined — if you're older, that is — by how easy this game can be. It also, unlike other puzzle games with redecorating mechanics, won't let you decide how the beach resort looks. But if you're a kid, not into exterior design, or just want a relaxing time with Minnie, Stitch, and Lumiere from Beauty and the Beast, Disney Getaway Blast can be a fun vacation from your brain.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about advertising. Players can also get gold coins by watching ads in Disney Getaway Blast, but why do you think they include this option? Does it bother you that this has ads? And does it matter that you have to choose to watch the ad instead of the ad popping up during play?

  • Does it make sense to spend money on a game you can play for free? If so, how do you decide how much money to spend?
