A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Guiding a car that has the consistency of a marshmallow takes practice. So does timing temporary power-up features like inflation to leap over gaps. But eventually the sweet taste of jelly success will inspire kids to complete one course and move on to the next.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this obstacle course game is awfully cute but might be too difficult for younger kids. Even the easy games are hard, which makes the game more suitable for tweens than preschoolers, despite the Disney stamp.

Good for everybody!

Dude. You people are insane!! On for 12+ and iffy for 10-12? It's JellyCar2 not Manhunt 2!

What's it about?

Kids move a car made of bouncy, wiggly materials -- jelly or a gelatin-like substance -- along obstacle courses. The car can be enlarged at certain points, and kids will see how strong and resilient (and permeable, in some missteps) the car can be. JellyCar 2 offers four levels -- classic mode, factory mode, long jump mode, and my levels where kids can create their own challenges. Kids can view tutorials for each level and should as this is a very challenging app.

Is it any good?

It's just a little-hand drawn car bumping along a straight line, but JELLYCAR 2 is an extremely challenging and ultimately very fun game. If you can get past the frustration factor of falling into an abyss of white space over and over again, you'll be rewarded with a sense of accomplishment and dozens more timed courses full of levels, hinges, and moving lifts. For the really ambitious, a development module lets you create your own killer courses.
