A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's 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

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.

Sex
Language
Consumerism

The game is also available as part of the All-in-One Gamebox app, and a promotion one the home page of iKung Fu Master will prompt you to download the Gamebox app.

What 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.
