A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The app walks you through the entire way, with text explaining what to do at each point during the game.
Products & Purchases
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.
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.
Is It Any Good?
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.
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.
