Is It Any Good?

Kids say (2):

At the risk of mixing animal metaphors, HAMBO is something of a one-trick pony. Its levels are fairly simple, but catchy -- and while adult players might feel like they've seen this before, they're designed well enough to keep you playing.

It's the theme of the game that might give some pause. While Hambo is simply a lark, there's something cannibalistic about a pig turning other pigs into SPAM and sandwiches that could bother some people. Others might find the scoring a bit odd (your score seems almost randomized at times, regardless of your performance). But as far as quick diversions go, it's still a fairly fun one.

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.
