For kids who are into adventures and fighting games, it will be a snap to get sucked into K.O.'s world and fight back against the onslaught of evil robots. There's a nice, engaging story line that advances through written dialogue and brief comic strips. The setup, in which kids explore the shopping plaza to meet crazy heroes and uncover their latest mission, keeps kids feeling as though they're in charge of their own game experience. While the controls are simple and intuitive, they are inexact and might frustrate some kids. The biggest downside is the lack of diversity in the characters: Other than K.O.'s mom, there are only two female characters, both of whom join in the fight but are still described in a way that makes them seem pretty ditzy. Yet, as fighting games go, this one is wrapped up nicely in a fun adventure story, and the level of violence is relatively tame. A good option for kids who are into gaming -- plus, it's free!

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.
