While it appears basic at first glance, there's a lot going on in this space game. Full of Stars is, technically, an arcade game, but the real draw are the story and role-playing elements that are a part of that. The game is intentionally hard, but that's only to keep you focused on the story, where your decisions have a real impact. It's an engaging way to get people more invested in the action and make them want to hone their skills so they can avoid some of the more difficult choices. The downside is the action gets repetitive and the controls are a bit loose. And, due to its difficulty, you'll be more tempted to spend money on in-app purchases that prevent you from having to start over (which occurs if you die). Those are small annoyances, though, if you get hooked by the game. And Full of Stars expertly draws you in, making you want to play to the end.

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.
