Required Purchases

The game is fun, but in order to continue playing after like, 20 minutes, you must pay for ponies to continue. I think they should just make you pay for the game in the first place. It also is annoying because there are ads, too. Plus, this is a kids game! Kids don't have that kind of money on hand, considering the age this game is meant for.

This game gives no options to keep playing for free. my child likes the game and is upset she cannot continue the game. That disgusts me. People like this should burn in hell. This is causing my child to cry and be upset. This is what causes depression in children. I will never buy from developers like this. Give ads to unlock the ponies or extra missions or something.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4):
Kids say (3):

Though this brand usually features some positive messages, this is a repetitive, somewhat violent experience that requires little thought or skill and can't be completed without in-app purchases. Kids are given a mind-numbing chase through Equestria, tapping on a button to run, tapping on other buttons to bypass obstacles, and often flinging rocks and other objects at enemies. About 25 percent of the way into the experience, kids are no longer able progress through the story without in-app purchases, making this a demo app masquerading as a free app. Young kids who are big fans may just enjoy seeing their favorite characters, but older kids and adults will quickly see through the magic. Users have few opportunities to make decisions, no customization, and no way to make the experience their own. Parents may want to bypass this one for better offerings by the brand.

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.
