Is It Any Good?

Though some kids may enjoy the story and games, the ads and purchases outweigh any potential fun. God of Magic - Gamebook Story includes a promising "interactive text adventure" in which players can shape the story by the storylines they choose. The problem is that the choices presented are often so similar that what a player chooses feels nearly irrelevant. The mini-games can be fun, but they don't require much thinking, just quick hand-eye coordination. God of Magic - Gamebook Story also has an age problem: The simple mini-games may appeal to younger kids (9 and up), but some content -- a joke about getting stoned, the mild swearing, and some of the ads -- simply aren't suitable for that age group. And even if you pay to have the ads removed, kids will eventually need to purchase gems and hearts to keep playing. So while it could be a relatively fun app that gets kids reading a bit, it ends up feeling full of marketing and money grabs.

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.
