Is It Any Good?

This easy, side-scrolling game is oceans of fun for Dory fans, and the stories add a creative touch. There are so many levels, each with unique characteristics but consistent gameplay to keep it interesting but not too challenging for young app users. One thing to watch for: When it's time for a player to choose one of three objects, Dory says some silly clues that don't make much sense, which may confuse some kids until they get further into the game. Once kids understand how their choices appear later in the silly story, however, they'll likely have some good laughs. It's not necessary to see the movie before playing on this app, but knowing the movie's storyline likely adds to the experience. Since Dory's poor memory is featured in the game, it's too bad kids don't actually have to remember anything for her, though they're instructed to. Also, gameplay might get repetitive for older kids, though the story might carry them along.
