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

Ease of Play

The controls are super easy, but the challenge level ramps up the longer you play.


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."


The game has had a couple of sequels which basically duplicate its gameplay exactly.

What 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.

fun for awhile

its addicting, and the song is catchy. but it gets boring

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.
