Is it any good?


MAKE A MARTIAN is a fantastic, fun way for little kids to goof around while being creative. The app provide dozens of wacky body parts kids can mix together to create original aliens. It's fun, relatively harmless, and should help inspire creativity that lives on beyond playtime with mom or dad's iPhone.
