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.

Complex but unique mobile game

A common complaint that I've had with most of these mobile RPG games is that they all look the same (just auto through stages with cheap 3D chibi graphics) which make most of them boring. This, pixel-based mobile game, is innovative as it lets you explore more into the stages, instead of just being limited to just fighting waves and waves of enemies over and over. There's no auto unlike most of these mobile games. The game starts out easy but gets complex because especially in World 5 (the Chinese World) and onward you can die in only a few hits, and some of these enemies can shoot tons of bullets. There's controller support. The only thing you might notice that within the dialogue that there is some language like "damn" and so on, and some suggestively dressed characters (Dancing Archer Tinia). The game is filled with pop-culture references, as the worlds are styled like Kingdom Hearts (each world has a unique them and aren't direct from each other), including a Harry Potter world. So, if you're wanting a unique mobile game, I'd check this out.
