FLY CONTROL HD is a much better game than you probably think. Yes, it's got a nasty premise -- help flies eat rotten garbage -- but there's a good deal of strategy to the game, and it builds to such a fast chaotic pace that it practically becomes an action game. You can earn coins to buy power-ups and bonuses. And once you unlock them, you can actually even play as other insects, like butterflies. There's also a neat head-to-head mode that two people can play on the same iPad. And with the colorful, cartoony graphics, even the grossest bits of the game -- probably the bug-squashing -- doesn't really look too horrible.

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.
