Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
For those who like quick, casual gameplay without a lot of strategy, this offers some laughter-filled chaos. Muffin Knight is just silly and unpredictable enough to make fast-paced platforming action surprisingly engaging. Those who prefer precision and planning will find the experience frustrating, as the characters change every time you capture a muffin, and you have no control over what you get. Unfortunately, some characters are great, while others are duds. While a panda flopping on the ground is a hilarious idea as a combat method, it's not particularly practical in action.
But that's all part of the charm of Muffin Knight, and what little strategy there is often comes in the form of fighting off as much as you can while you have a good combat character. The great thing, though, is that it's hard to take too seriously. If you die over and over again, you just keep trying and keep laughing. The iOS version of the game has a flaw (glitch?) that requires players to watch the entire backstory cut-scene each and every time they load the game. For a title that thrives on a quick-play vibe, this is a major oversight. But if you can get past this and the hit or miss nature of the effectiveness in some characters in combat, Muffin Knight is goofy, delightful fun that family members of different ages and skills can enjoy together.
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.
