Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that despite its questionable title, Freaking Inkies is an otherwise family-friendly -- and even educational -- arcade game. Color matching and color-combining are key elements of play. And math even comes into play on certain levels. Parents should be aware, though, that the game can (but doesn't have to) connect to the Plus+ online gaming community.
Is it any good?
FREAKING INKIES is a far edgier name for an app than this generally innocent and incredibly enjoyable game deserves. There's a cathartic fun in squirting colored ink everywhere and making a huge mess (which is cleaned up at the end of every level), and having to think fast and create color-combos on the fly adds an exhilarating thrill to it all. The developers never let the game get too repetitive either, as more and more varied challenges are added as the levels progress. Freaking Inkies is a solidly great game.
