The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What 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?
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.
