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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that KG Dogfighting, previously known as Dog Wars, is a controversial app in which players train dogs to fight in a virtual dogfighting ring against other players online. Gameplay is menu-driven, and while there is little graphic violence, the game
exposes kids to illegal dogfighting and the surrounding underground subculture -- including guns, knives, and steroids.
It encourages players to train their dogs to be killers. The in-game message board contains no language filters, and players will regularly be exposed to strong language. For these reasons, the app is not recommended for kids. This app was reviewed on a Motorola Milestone.

Is It Any Good?
Controversial subject matter aside, KG DOGFIGHTING simply isn't a very good game. After players have chosen a persona (such as rapper, gangster, football star, or politician) and a dog, the majority of the game is spent training the dog to max out its stats -- a tedious process that involves playing the same three mini-games ad nauseam, including swiping the screen to make a dog drag a tire and jerking the phone while the dog is holding onto a rope to improve its jaw strength. Fights occur in real time when one player challenges another online, but consist of nothing more than pressing "Attack" until one of the dog's health bars reaches zero. (Players can also use boosts or run away, but there's no advanced strategy whatsoever). On top of that, graphics and audio are below par, there are inadequate instructions, and the game is buggy and crashed frequently during our evaluation.
