What parents need to know

Ease of play

Fragger has a pick-up-and-play nature. It's very natural-feeling control scheme should be easy for anyone to get the hang of. Puzzles become increasingly challenging, but that only makes it all the more satisfying when you figure them out.

Violence

The object of Fragger is to blow up stationary human enemies with grenades. When the grenades explode, the ski mask-wearing bad guys grow wide-eyed, fly in the air, and disappear in a puff of smoke.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Fragger is a trajectory-based puzzle game along the lines of Angry Birds and Bloons, but that this one is based around realistic-looking explosives (as opposed to exploding cartoon birds or balloon-popping darts) and your targets are human. The animation is cartoony -- some might even say "cute" -- and there's no blood. However, if you've played the online version of Fragger, which featured dummies to blow up, you may be surprised to find human targets in this mobile version.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

FRAGGER is a fantastic app game with very nice animation, super-easy controls, and some excellent strategic challenges. When the developers made this mobile version of their already popular Web game, they changed the human-shaped dummy targets to human-shaped human targets, adding an unnecessary level of violence. Even so, the cartooniness of the graphics makes it very tame in comparison to other action-themed app games. And it doesn't negate the game's inherently fun and addictive nature.
