Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Family Guy Time Warped is an arcade platform game based on the popular television series. The app is filled with clips from the series, and continues many of the less-than-family-friendly themes that make the show a success. Stewie, the baby and co-star of this game, for instance, is a foul-mouthed, violent tyke who shows no respect for his parents. The game is full of slapstick violence, harsh language, and gross humor. An HD version is also available for the iPad.
Is it any good?
Devoted fans of the show may enjoy FAMILY GUY TIME WARPED, but casual watchers aren't likely to have as much fun. The game is a mediocre platform jumper without a lot of diversity. While you pummel enemies and jump from heights, the pacing is slow and the game feels sluggish. Its best moments come from watching short clips from the show -- but there's no reason to suffer through a so-so game to watch those when the program is in constant reruns on cable.
