Is It Any Good?
Though this app has a certain old school, arcade-style beat-'em-up appeal, it would be a lot less confusing and infuriating if wasn't so obvious and if it explained itself better. In PPKP, you spend the bulk of your time getting into turn-based fights with aliens from another dimension. First, you get to punch and kick them, using this game's simple controls; then, when it's their turn, you have to time your blocks and countermoves just right. The problem is that right before your enemies attack, there's a flash in their eyes and a corresponding tone. As a result, it's really easy to block their punches and kicks. Also, when you're not easily beating people up, you have to help rebuild your neighborhood. At least that's what it seems like you're supposed to do. It's kind of hard to tell; this game doesn't explain anything very clearly. Granted, if you don't mind a bit of trial and error, you can kind of figure it out, but the uncertainty makes this more frustrating than fun. Still, if you're a fan of games like Double Dragon, and you don't mind having to figure things out when you shouldn't have to, you'll have some fun with the old school, pixelated brawling of PPKP.
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.
