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.

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.
