It’s not the deepest game around, but PADDLE BATTLE makes good use of the iPad’s multitouch capabilities to allow two people to play a game at the same time. Your objective is simple: Slide your paddle left and right to deflect incoming balls, missiles, and other objects before they reach your base and destroy your shield. Balls have to travel through an asteroid field, making them hard to aim precisely, but players have access to plenty of fun power-ups -- rockets, missiles, even spinning hot tamales -- that offer more direct control and keep things interesting. It’s a great way for siblings (or their parents) to share the family tablet while killing off a few minutes waiting in the car or in a doctor’s office.

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.
