The nostalgia that goes with He-Man: The Most Powerful Game in the Universe is undeniable -- and the sense of humor Chillingo has about the game is very welcome (they know exactly how cheesy the franchise is). And as an arcade side-scrolling brawler, it's actually a pretty fun game.

Where it stumbles, though, is the controls, which are often non-responsive and non-intuitive. Jumping is an essential skill, but the action required for the move is not a natural one -- and it only seems to work some of the time. It's a cheap app, so you won't feel as if you've wasted money, but it's not something that will hold your attention for a long time.

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.
