Consumerism

Players use in-game currency to keep playing when they run out of turns or lives, or to buy power-ups. This currency can be earned by playing or bought with real money. The game also features characters from Disney animated movies that have been featured in other games as well as toys, clothing, and other items.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Disney Princess Magic Quest is a match-3 puzzle game for iOS and Android devices. As you'd expect from a game that features Jasmine, Belle, and other ladies from Disney's classic animated movies, this has no inappropriate content. But parents should be aware that players can use real money to buy both turns and lives when they run out of them, or special boosts to proceed through the game, which can also be earned through playing the title as well. 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 PRINCESS MAGIC QUEST, a storm has trashed Princess Jasmine's palace, and she needs your help to fix the place up. To do this, you need to solve puzzles in which you move a gem on a board so it lines up with two or more gems of the same color and shape. Do this enough times to satisfy the conditions of the puzzle you're working -- which could be freeing all the fairies or clearing up the Autumn Leaves -- and you can move on to the next one while helping Princess Jasmine make repairs. And if you're good, you can do the same later on for Belle and Ariel and, in the future, other Disney Princesses.

Is it any good?

While serious match-3 players will feel this Disney-flavored puzzle game doesn't offer anything new, this might get their Princess-loving kids to check out this kind of mind game. In Disney Princess Magic Quest, Princess Jasmine's palace has been damaged in a storm. But instead of fixing it up herself, she asks you to do it. That would be annoying if by "fixing the palace," she didn't mean "solving match-3 puzzles." As with other games of this kind, you have to move a gem on a board one space so that it lines up with three or more of gems of the same color and shape. Doing some removes them from the board, and hopefully solves the conditions of the puzzle. You just have to be sure to do it before you run out of turns.

As fun as this may sound, and it is fun, it's not terribly original. There are countless games of this kind, some of which are far more clever or challenging than this one. But what this offers instead is Disney Princesses. Besides Jasmine, you also eventually get to help Belle, Ariel, and others to be released later. And since this, like other match-3 puzzle games, starts off slow, it ends up being a good first puzzle game for Princess-loving kids who haven't played a game that requires you to use your brain as well as your twitchy fingers. Which is why veteran match-3 puzzle players won't think Disney Princess Magic Quest is all that magical, but it'll make Disney kids sing like an inanimate object that's come to life.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about marketing to kids. Why do you think Disney made Disney Princess Magic Quest? Was it to be nice, or was it to make money and promote their movies?

  • In Disney Princess Magic Quest, you can spend real money to buy lives when you run out of them so you can keep playing, but lives recharge over time, so does it make sense to pay to play a free game when you could just be patient and wait?
