Gem of a game

hONESTly one of the best games I've ever played in my life. So good it almost ruined my life hahaha all i do now is sit and flip, stand and flip. I'm always on this gem of a game. If anyone disagrees with my opinion's on this game then they're clearly wrong. I am a flip diver now and no one can take that title from me.

Is It Any Good?

Kids say (4 ):

This is less a game than an amusing little time-killer, but its slow progress, ads, and purchases make it less-than-ideal for kids. It's easy to imagine making a 10-minute line at the bank more tolerable by making a rag-dollish diver go "sploosh" but less easy to imagine doing it for hours on end. And while it's fun to get the hang of performing a perfect backflip or pike, the reluctant reward system means there are literally hundreds of dives ahead of you before you can unlock more stuff. What's even more annoying is that you don't get to choose what to unlock: Though you can scroll through different characters with "Get" buttons, you still have to spin a wheel to spend your coins, which gives you a new character at random, not one you choose deliberately. You can watch videos to get things faster, but the number of videos you have to watch to unlock that female diver is excessive -- yes, ONE female diver. What, women don't dive? In the end you won't be playing Flip Diving for the audio-visuals since the graphics and sound are no more than adequate, but if turning a guy in a penguin suit into an Olympic-level diver sounds good to you, you're in for a rare treat.

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.
