A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Ease of Play
The controls are super easy, but the challenge level ramps up the longer you play.
Violence & Scariness
There's a piece of farcically nasty imagery that occurs when you lose. On the score screen, you see the robot unicorn's severed metallic head lying on the ground under the words: "Your Dreams Did Not Come True."

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Robot Unicorn Attack is a tongue-in-cheek action arcade game. It features lots of dreamy, colorful imagery that is usually associated with peace and joy -- rainbows, flowers, unicorns, etc. -- but does so in a kitschy parody style. The feel-good imagery is turned on its head (literally) when the game ends and your unicorn's head is apparently broken off.
Is It Any Good?
ROBOT UNICORN ATTACK is a "jumper" game, meaning your character races along a series of cliffs and ledges and you must make him jump at the right times. Here, your unicorn also gets to "dash," breaking through large obstacles (usually shiny stars). It's fine as jumper games go, but is elevated by its intentionally cheesy imagery. The game takes unicorns, rainbows, and other imagery that is, frankly, associated with little girls, and juxtaposes it with an action game format. The result is humorous, as intended.
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.
