A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Uses the familiar controls from the endless-runner genre, so any kid who's played one will know how to control it.
Violence & Scariness
Filled with the same sort of cartoon violence you'd find in a Looney Tunes cartoon on TV. Elmer Fudd fires a gun frequently (always missing), and there are dustup fights when you hit too many obstacles (dust balls with stars and an occasional limb showing).

Products & Purchases
Losing gives you the option to use in-game currency to continue from your current location. After the first time, though, you'll have to pay for the privilege with real-world money. You also can pay to increase the power of power-ups.
Parents Need to Know
Families need to know that Looney Tunes Dash! is an endless-runner game based on the popular cartoon series. There's plentiful cartoon violence, as you'd see on TV, but more worrisome to parents is the focus on in-app purchases (which can be disabled in your device's controls). The game is made with kids in mind and isn't especially difficult, which should keep them entertained even if they've played several similar titles. You can play in a variety of languages other than English, though language is not the focus.
Is It Any Good?
Adults may roll their eyes at yet another endless runner, but kids will probably have a good time with Looney Tunes Dash! The game's not difficult, which makes it accessible to kids, and the creative power-ups (which turn Bugs into a superhero or help him collect all nearby coins) are plentiful and fun. The cameos by other characters are generally bland, with the exception of Daffy Duck, who runs in front of you and takes the coins before you can get to them, and Gossamer, the hairy red monster you transform into with one power-up, who barrels through everything in his path. The push for in-app purchases is a bit heavy, but if that's disabled in the phone or tablet's settings, this is a game you can feel safe letting your child enjoy.
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.
