LINGO HD is a fun and challenging word game with a neat splash of logic. It can be confusing to learn to play without poking around the settings menu to find the tutorial. Once you're familiar with the game options and play, though, it's great to customize the background (even using one of your own photos!) and experiment with different word lengths, speed, difficulty level, and ways to challenge friends. Kids (and adults!) without a strong vocabulary will likely find it difficult to formulate guesses in the short time for each round.

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.
