Is It Any Good?

Any app that allows kids to design and play their own video game levels starts with bonus points for creativity and replay value, but more help and fewer purchases would boost this one's value. Draw Your Game 2 also shines with the simplicity of creating a level; there's no special drawing skills or programming ability necessary. Unfortunately, some of the campaign levels may have kids frustrated before they even unlock the ability to create anything. It's easy to get stuck, and there are no hints available to help you out. The sticker currency is also frustrating as it can take a lot of stickers to unlock the ability to draw and share levels. A glitch prevented purchasing the full game during review, despite multiple attempts at different times. Draw Your Game 2 offers a creative option for kids who aren't quite up for coding their own games, but it doesn't seem quite ready for prime time.

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.
