HUNGRY SUMO scratches the same itch that a Fruit Ninja or Doodle Jump game does. It's overly simplistic, but utterly addictive. The goal is simple: Fatten up your sumo to defeat floating enemies (but don't run into them while you're eating). Despite the 100 levels, there's not a lot of diversity, but that's not important, since the concept is so easy to grasp and so fun on a visceral level. It's snack gaming in grand fashion, but it's also a title you'll find yourself coming back to again and again. Deep? Not at all. But fun? More than most of the games you'll find in the App Store.

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.
