Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Mia and Me - The Legend of Centopia is a side-scrolling adventure game that may be quite challenging for the coordination level of younger kids. The game is based on Mia, the schoolgirl-turned-elf in the show Mia and Me. On each level, Mia faces obstacles and challenges, from trees and cliffs to archers shooting at her atop a dragon. If her life power reaches zero, she falls to the ground, losing that level, but each level can be replayed. In a few instances, Mia is tied up with rope but can break free with some tapping help.
Is It Any Good?
The backstory of MIA AND ME - THE LEGEND OF CENTOPIA unfolds over several screens; kids can replay it by tapping the heart on the home screen. Kids need to understand the mission to play well, which may be tricky for younger players to grasp. They can still play, of course, but may miss the point. Collecting the dust, tears, and parts while avoiding the obstacles requires precise eye-hand coordination, but, since each level is replayable, kids can improve each time they play. The story line is exciting and engaging for girls without being sticky-sweet or condescending. The fact that Mia is a girl isn't even a factor, which is refreshing and important. The length of play, number of levels, and difficulty are just right to challenge and excite little and big kids.
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.
