Is It Any Good?

Although the app doesn't lump itself into the education category, there are plenty of opportunities for learning. Kids quickly find that there's a lot to consider when laying out floors, distributing points, and building lava pits. They have to ask questions and make predictions as they draw out the game blueprints. After uploading the drawing, they can test the game, see what works and what doesn't, and then make revisions for the next version. By creating their own problems to solve, kids will learn a lot along the way, and the games themselves end up looking great. Kids may want to get extra guidance, however, as a few how-to-get-started videos are all the instruction offered.

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.
