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.

What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this cute tilting game is fine for most kids. However, preschoolers and younger kids might not have the required hand-eye coordination to play. Our review is based on the iPhone app; the Android app may have some differences in functionality.

What’s It About?
Kids tilt the device to guide the Doodler as he jumps higher and higher, collecting power-ups and avoiding obstacles along the way. The higher up the course The Doodler goes, the deadlier the obstacles, but the better the boosts, such as springs and rocket packs. Kids on an iOS device can play a multiplayer game with Game Center friends, or with a random matchup using Game Center.
Is It Any Good?
In this irresistible game a little green alien -- aka the Doodler -- bounces up a sheet of graph paper from one platform to the next, all while avoiding meanies. The quirky graphics and sound effects are memorable, especially the monsters' funny "rom-de-rom" grumblings. Other players' scores are scribbled in the margins of the game as you fly up the page, which is a great touch. Frequent updates keep the game fresh with new creatures to avoid.
