A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

Very easy to use. Just tilt device, stack dinosaurs or fruit and other objects on top of one another, and avoid the objects that cause the tower to fall.

Violence & Scariness

When the dinosaurs miss, nothing really happens. They just spin to the ground.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Pocket Dinosaurs is an easy arcade-style game for young app users. Dinosaurs are trying to build a tower (or a tower of fruit in fruit mode) to leave the planet. All that's required to build the tower and avoid the obstacles is the ability to tilt the device left to right.

Is it any good?

There's nothing educational or particularly inventive here, but POCKET DINOSAURS is a fun, free, and harmless app that younger kids will enjoy. The 15 different types of colorful dinosaurs pictured are cute (there's a fruit mode, too) and even when the dino- or fruit-towers fall, it's nothing shocking or scary. Just try again.
