Is It Any Good?

As a game, Pocket Climber isn't bad. It's repetitive, certainly, and something of a one-trick pony, but there are plenty of coins to gather and plenty of hazards to avoid. The controls are simple, though sometimes sticky. And the power-ups you can purchase are fun.

But there are some things about the game that feel wrong. There's heavy in-app purchase pressure (though you can certainly play just fine without buying coins). And the game offers 1,000 coins for a five-star review -- a deal that thousands of players have seemingly taken advantage. That skews honest feedback on the game and could trick some people into playing.

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.
