While the original Pocket God was an amusing experiment in cartoon torture (and a terrific guilty pleasure), Pocket God: Journey To Uranus falls a bit short. There are a few new ways to torment the pygmies who stare in awe at the worlds you drag them to and, once again, there's an infinite supply of them, but the real thrust of the game is the three mini-games -- clones of the arcade classics Joust and Tempest as well as a remake of the "flick the pygmies into the volcano" game from previous installments. They're fun remakes, but there are plenty of other clones of those games about. And with a series this popular, you'd expect the fun factor to be ramped up -- or at least for there to be more to do in the game. It's a buck well spent for enormous fans of the series, but easily bypassed by others.

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.
