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.

Excellent game!

Younger children will have difficulty playing solo, but it's a great game to play together. The goal is to help a cat traverse a variety of obstacles in his path using varies inventions. You start out with two- springboard (for jumping short distances) and cannon (breaks boxes blocking way). More are added over time so children have time to learn the function of each. Parachutes help you fall down. Catapults vault you over wider gaps. A helicopter thing takes you straight up. Levels get more complex and appear to have multiple solutions. Questions you can use to help your child: "That's a small gap. What do you use to get over a small gap?" "You cat hit his head on the ceiling. What else could we try here? Could we change the angle?" Unlike some games, which make you pay to play or penalize you for failing, this game does neither. You can make as many attempts as you want as frequently as you want. If you fail an obstacle, the game reloads there so you don't scroll back and forth looking for the place that needs fixing.
