Is It Any Good?

MONSTER HEART MEDIC is a fantastic free resource that teaches about the cardiovascular system and promotes heart-healthy living. Kids will be engaged by the real-world story line, and the arcade games are a fun variation within the overall story. Sometimes the next step isn't entirely clear, though there are on-screen prompts, but kids will eventually tap around enough to get to the next step. Also, though the controls for the arcade games only consist of tapping once or twice, it can be hard to avoid obstacles. Audio narration would be nice to see to make the app more accessible. Other than these few, minor drawbacks, Monster Heart Medic is an engaging way to introduce kids to cardiovascular health.

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.
