DOODLE INVADERS is a fairly basic arcade game wrapped in a cute package that resembles a hand-drawn cartoon with stick-figure humans and stereotypical "giant green squid" sci-fi movie aliens. New challenges are introduced gradually to spice things up, like fishing boats that can hook aliens on their lines, or the Squidoodle invaders that can break barriers in half. The difficulty ramps up pretty quickly since there's more and more to keep track of on-screen. The controls could use some finessing, since tapping on objects sometimes (though not always) makes your barrier disappear as well. The game isn't a classic, but it's a fun time-waster all the same.

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.
