This monster-versus-grandmother face-off could be a lot of fun, but the vague gameplay keeps it from being being fun. It's nice to see an older character saving the day in Granny Legend, and the incoming monsters provide increasingly challenging scenarios. After a couple of rounds, they can pour in from both sides, and ones you don't kill off with the rest of the group will actively follow you. But the game's vague playing guidelines, though, are a real drawback. It's unclear what the random knives you can pick up along the way in rounds are for, or what new weapons you buy will add to the experience. Similarly, it's hard to tell what factors could prevent or allow monsters to touch you, which will end the round. With weapons constantly spinning around you in a circle, it seems like they shouldn't be able to.

There's some skill involved in waging attacks on creatures who require more than one blow to defeat, but without any idea how some can end up touching you, any contact they make seems somewhat arbitrary -- and it starts to feel like there's no real way to master the game and move forward. Earning enough gems to extend rounds often is difficult -- which means players will need to repeat each one until they can eliminate all monsters without being touched. Given how long that can take, they may quickly lose interest in playing.

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.
