Too many ads

I freaked out after seeing my 7 y/o play the Flip Skater version. There is literally a slot machine that the user has to watch to get coins, as well as repeated links to ads.

Too much consumerism

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

This app provides a fun, more balanced amount of play from the developer's previous flipping game, Flip Diving, as long as you're willing to wade through lots of ads. The trampoline setting is more forgiving, allows more room for error, and gives players more time to improve their skills. Because of this, earning new items and tricks is less of a grind, and short play sessions can still feel worthwhile. Some things remain the same -- spending coins to spin for random items/power-ups for instance -- but again, since it doesn't take as long to earn currency, the random aspect isn't as bothersome. Also the same are the invasive ads. There's no option to pay for an ad-free version, so every few levels you have to sit through an ad for another game or service. On top of that, you're given the option to watch ads to earn coins. Yes, this is optional, but since doing this is a fast-track to in-app purchases, it's too tempting to ignore. Still, even with the ever-present ads, Flip Master is a distinct improvement on the previous app and successfully ups the ante when it comes to mobile entertainment.

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.
