Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Repetition can be fun in games, but only in limited quantities. Merge Town!, though, is nothing but repetition. So while it might be soothing to tap away at the screen and pair buildings, there's no meaning behind it -- and that eventually saps any fun away from the game. Typically, treadmill-like game activity is done for a notable reward. But it's not until you've played Merge Town! for some time that you'll realize the only reward you receive is more of the same.

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.
