Fun, clever arcade game frustratingly pushes a lot of ads.

While this clever arcade game can be fun, the gameplay and heightened focus on squeezing cash from you can be very frustrating when you first start playing. In Ghost Pop!, you're a red hood-wearing young woman who's out for a stroll through a scary forest when you come upon a bunch of scary monsters and super creeps. Good thing you have a flashlight and they have an allergy to light. By sliding your finger left and right, you shine your flashlight on your enemies, making them, well, pop. The problem is that you clearly bought a cheap flashlight, and you're using the batteries that came with it, which is why, when you first start this game, you die rather quickly and often. It's only after you play a while (and, let's be honest, watch a bunch of ads to triple your take-home pay) that you'll actually last long enough to start enjoying this clever arcade game. Which is why, though it's initially annoying, you'll soon realize that once you Ghost Pop!, you just can't stop.

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.
