What's it about?
In KNIFE HIT, players throw knives at a rotating circle of wood, attempting to exhaust their supply of knives (thus shattering the wood and moving to the next stage). If a knife hits another knife, the game is over. Splitting apples that happen to be sitting on that sphere earn bonus points and can be used to buy different types of knives.
Is it any good?
Talk to your kids about ...
Families can talk about character strengths like perseverance. Can you see how practicing something hard, like working on speeding up your reflexes or improving your aim in a game like Knife Hit, makes that activity easier to accomplish?
Talk about privacy concerns. Should you be concerned when developers don't state whether a game could possibly harvest your personal data for other companies to use?
Discuss how things that look safe on a screen can be dangerous in the real world. Can you see why it would be a bad idea to try the actions in Knife Hit in the real world?
