Mild cartoon violence with gingerbread man on the run.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The gingerbread man runs automatically, and there are two buttons to push: One makes him jump, and the other will either make him slide under objects when he is on the ground, or hook with his candy cane to swing from objects if he is in the air. The controls are simple, but getting the right timing for swinging from objects can be quite difficult and somewhat frustrating.
Violence & Scariness
The main character is a gingerbread man trying to escape. There are obstacles to slide under and jump over, as well as gaps where the gingerbread man can fall, but there isn't much violence actually depicted -- he simply loses a heart and continues.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that OvenBreak Infinity is a side-scrolling arcade game featuring a running gingerbread man. The cartoon violence is fairly mild but the controls may be too difficult for younger children. There are a few privacy issues with Game Center, Facebook and Twitter, but those are optional. Also, there is an extra Christmas-themed level that requires "liking" the app on Facebook to unlock.

Is It Any Good?
OVENBREAK INFINITY stars Ginger Brave, a gingerbread man on the run from an evil witch. As he runs from the oven to the table to the outdoors, he collects as many jelly beans as possible while jumping over gaps, sliding under obstacles, and swinging from overhead objects over larger gaps. There are a few different modes of play: "Easy" gradually adds in one type of obstacle at a time to slowly ramp up the difficulty level; "Hard" starts off with all the obstacles in play. Beating the "Hard" mode unlocks "Infinity" mode, which does not have an end point -- it just keeps going until players lose all their hearts.
OvenBreak Infinity falls into the "simple-but-addictive" category of games; it takes only a short amount of time to play once, but you may find yourself playing more than once. One complaint is that the jump-and-swing can be very hard to time properly, even with practice.
