The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

There are few instructions to this game, but they really aren't needed. Gameplay is intuitive; the images on the screen show you all you need to know. There are three levels to appeal to slightly different ages. Level one is a maze that fits on the screen. For level two, the maze is larger than the screen so kids can't see it all at once. Level three has an even larger maze, with parts of it locked away until you find the key. In addition, the watermelons that kids need to collect on level three appear and disappear, making it more of a challenge.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Go George Go! is a maze game for young kids that features Curious George from the series of books, shows, and movies. Kids can choose one of three levels and then dress George up in an outfit. The outfit chosen determines the maze background and design. Kids tilt the device or drag their finger to help George travel through the maze, picking up fruit along the way. The game keeps score for them, and if their score is one of the highest ones, they can list their name on the high score list. A separate high score list is kept for each of the three levels. There is no timer for solving the mazes. Also available is Go George Go! for iPad.

Is it any good?

GO GEORGE GO! is a decent maze game for small kids. The three levels allow kids to increase difficulty over time, or allow kids of different ages to play. But once each level is played several times, there isn't anything additional to the game. Kids can compete against themselves or against others by trying to get the best score on the high score lists, but the number of fruits available to collect on each level varies. Level one, for example, sometimes will have four bananas, sometimes six, sometimes another number. There is some variety in design, though. Depending on which clothes kids dress George in, they can solve a maze in outer space, on the water, on a farm, or in other locations. The mazes are cute but fairly simple.
