A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Game gently guides players through basic moves and is designed for younger audience, but controls can be unpredictable.

Violence & Scariness

Miles hits obstacles but only blinks when he's injured. 

Sexy Stuff

Offers in-app purchases but doesn't aggressively market them. Other apps for sale in parents' section guarded by spelled-out number gate.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Miles from Tomorrowland: Missions is an arcade game based on the Disney Junior series. It doesn't contain any notable violence nor any other factors parents need to worry about. In-app purchases are available, but you can disable them from the device's general settings, and they're not necessary to enjoy the game. The controls can be finicky, which might frustrate some kids until they get the hang of it, but a kid can retry levels again and again.

What's it about?

In endless-runner style, Miles Callisto and his robo-ostrich best friend, Merc, attempt to gather materials on a series of rescue missions, dodging asteroids and other obstacles along the way. Jumping, flying, and throwing the boomerang that destroys certain barriers all are performed by touching the screen in various places. When kids fail a level, they get to try again without penalty, but they do need to start from the beginning of that level. Though kids don't need to already be fans of the show before playing, it would definitely make the game more fun.

Is it any good?

Based on the TV show, MILES FROM TOMORROWLAND: MISSIONS is a bare-bones arcade game that most young children likely will enjoy. It's a game meant for players who don't have a lot of experience under their belt and who are best served by having a limited number of actions on-screen. Miles' affirmations and cheers as he succeeds will spur kids to keep playing, especially if they enjoy the show. Older siblings, though, likely will roll their eyes at the game's simplicity. Despite that, controlling Miles can be tricky, and the obstacles might be hard to dodge; some kids may grow tired of having to start a level over and over. It does help that there are no penalties for losing and a kid can retry as many times as it takes.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Parents can talk about sticking with a problem to figure it out, rather than taking the easy way. Does Miles give up when things get tough? What does he do?

  • Discuss the kinds of missions Miles takes on: What are his goals? Is he trying to help himself or others?

  • Set expectations for in-app purchases before playing, and talk about why they're available in the first place. Can you still have fun playing without buying anything?

  • If your kid loves outer space, talk about real missions and learn about space exploration together.
