Consumerism

Under the info and options screen, there's an entire section devoted to other Maverick Software cooking games, and then a link that takes you to another screen full of other Maverick Software apps. All of these take you directly to the iTunes store for the app you select. Users can upload images to Facebook, advertising the app to their friends.

Drinking, drugs, & smoking
Not applicable
Privacy & safety

The app uses AGON Online to access the leaderboards, which track how many times you've flipped food on the grill. It does require signing in (and registering if you've never used AGON before). Parents can leave this option turned off for kids.

On the food prep screen, there's a button that allows you to send a picture via email or upload to Facebook. The Facebook link requires a login to be established once, but the email uses the device's email account.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that More Grillin' is a barbeque simulator that allows kids to cook food on a grill, arrange it on a plate, and then eat it. Parents may want to monitor their kids while using this app since it does have the ability to send screenshots via email or Facebook, and the app uses AGON for online leaderboard tracking.

QUALITY
 

MORE GRILLIN' presents players with a grill and a wide selection of meats. Simply choose the meats, throw them on the grill, and then flip them with the spatula (either by tapping or shaking the device). After the meat is cooked, prep it by putting it on a plate with a bun, toppings, sauces, and sides. Once done, players can "eat" the food by tapping on it. The appearance is customizable: choose a grill color, tablecloth, and type of plate. There's not much to it, but kids might enjoy "making" a meal and then chomping it up.
