Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (9 ):

This app has a number of issues, ranging from its overall theme -- acting aggressively toward a teacher -- to its inconsistent design. Scary Teacher 3D has wonky background graphics that disappear and reappear as you pass by them. The game's instructions contain frequent grammatical errors, and the directional controls aren't necessarily intuitive. Instead of being able to click on a door, for example, to open it, players have to click on a button in the corner of the screen. The controls also aren't always particularly functional -- you can walk right up to a doorway, for example, but to enter it, you may need to swipe to swivel the perspective, even though you seem to be directly facing the entryway.

Because you need to wander around rooms to find objects involved in pranks, the awkward directional tools and varying walking speed (sometimes you go quickly, but other times, you move much slower) can make trying to complete tasks frustrating. Until you do, you'll need to redo rounds, which means the game will take a long time to play. Parents probably won't be crazy about Scary Teacher 3D encouraging kids to break into a house and do mean things; it's just as unlikely kids will be thrilled with the prospect of repeating challenges they've already tried to complete, but couldn't because they weren't able to navigate the confusing controls or move fast enough.

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.
