Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Line Surfer is a casual action game in which players tap the screen in time with waves to make a stick figure surf. Players have to jump over obstacles and time their jumps such that they do not crash into another, taller oncoming wave. If they do crash, the stick figure falls into the water and the message "Landed head down in the water!" appears. Users can share high scores via OpenFeint and the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.
