A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
This is a walk-and-fight button-mashing game. The controls are certainly not hard to figure out, and strategy really only comes into play on the boss battles.
Violence & Scariness
The stick-figure hero will fight and kill stick-figure foes with swords, clubs, nunchucks, or his bare hands. Blood spurts and flies with every attack.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that iKung Fu Master is one of the vast number of violent stick-figure action games available for mobile devices. Like many of its ilk, it shows characters that look like they're drawn by a child, but which encounter tons of mayhem. There's a lot of blood in this game, which basically consists of walking from one opponent to the next and fighting him to the death.
Is It Any Good?
There is admittedly something cool about the touch-guy stick-figure art in iKUNG FU MASTER, but its a style that has become so overused among the titles in the App Store, that it feels far less exciting now than it might have a couple of years ago. Without its stylized graphics, iKung Fu Master doesn't have much to offer. The hero walks along and hits bad guys on his way to rescue his girlfriend (who we know is strapped to a ticking bomb). Blood flies, enemies fall, and players earn new weapons that they can use to do more of the same.
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.
