A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

The game is simple to play, but not all options work as they should. The accelerometer operates poorly, but players can opt to use finger controls instead. Players move the condom-shooter up and down the screen with the right finger or thumb and then tap the "fire!" button with the left. The game features three difficulty levels, though there seems to be very little difference in game play between the levels.

Violence
Sex

The app's logo includes a smiling condom adorned with a white dripping substance. Though nothing sexual actually happens in the game, its setting is inside a pink, flesh-like tube (that savvy users might recognize as a cartoonish vagina), and the game's object is to shoot condoms at swimming sperm and other sexually-themed objects.

Language
Consumerism

The free version constantly asks players to upgrade or shop for the publisher's other games.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Mr. Cond's cartoonish icon -- a smiling condom adorned with a white dripping substance set against a bright pink background -- looks deceptively kid-friendly, but make no mistake, this game is entirely focused on shooting condoms at sperm, viruses, medicine capsules, and other objects associated with sex and sexually transmitted diseases. The game is set inside a cartoonish, non-graphic vaginal canal and is poorly designed.

Eh. If they know what it means let them play it

okay, but mindless

funny. teaches about safe sex. not graphic.

Is it any good?

MR. COND, an aim-and-shoot app, seems designed simply to titillate -- teens will likely find the game's focus on condoms a tantalizing subject. However, after the novelty wears off, kids are left with an incredibly simplistic and poorly designed game.  The app's description includes a badly translated message alluding to the importance of safe sex, and while this is certainly the theme, the game in no way supports or educates around the issue. Though the sexual theme is overt, the actual substance of the game is very mild (and limited) and though it might produce some giggles in teens, the content itself contains nothing graphic. The most frustrating thing about the game, aside from its useless accelerometer, is that the paid version is nearly identical to the free game (just without the annoying upgrade ads).
