A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
Tutorial could be more detailed, mechanics are awkward, and it takes a lot of play to unlock other buildings.

Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
This is a fun, fast-paced slingshot game, though it's mechanics might be frustrating for some. While the octopus is barely visible, the customers in the windows and the flying obstacles are interesting-looking characters with silly animations, so that adds some personality to the game. Like the other tie-in apps, this one uses some creative touchscreen mechanics, and in this case, the slingshot mechanism is a little tricky and awkward. Also similar to the others, there's not a whole lot of challenge or thinking, but for some mindless, harmless fun, it hits the target.
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.
