As far as endless runners go, this one isn't bad, but it doesn't stand out, either. On the upside, the artwork's appealing, the environments are varied, and it's not terribly difficult to collect enough coins to unlock additional characters and temporary power-ups. You can even purchase the ability to start your run four levels in if you find yourself stuck at the beginning. Unfortunately, Frombie Run represents the simplest approach possible to an endless runner and, as such, misses opportunities for cranking up the fun. Although you can buy additional characters, they don't seem to play any differently from one another. Also, beyond the cosmetic, levels don't feel as different from each other as they might. The app lets you continue your run in exchange for watching ads for other games -- a great thing if your reaction time is slow or the sometimes iffy swipe controls refuse to obey you. Still, after an hour or so, the fun's overrun by marauding monotony, and not even friendly zombies can stop it.

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.
