Is It Any Good?

Each mini-game is really brief, played against the timer for a few seconds each. Games get more challenging as kids play, adding more steps to complete in the same amount of time, and some quickly become nearly impossible to win. Both the fun and challenge is pretty hit-or-miss between games. Painting Maleficent's castle requires simply swiping a finger across the screen to "color" the castle. Playing the piano with a Dalmatian perched on top of it starts easily enough, repeating three or four notes played, with the keys lighting up in different colors. But, after a couple of rounds, the songs get longer and the keys don't light up -- and the timer doesn't give any more time. The villains' reactions add to the fun, making the inevitable defeat bearable.

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.
