Is It Any Good?

In many ways Sick Bricks is a bid to get kids to buy toys, but its goofy, frenetic fun might just be worth the money it'll cost. The core of Sick Bricks is fighting and rebuilding, and this back-and-forth formula would probably be a bit too repetitive if not for the game's variety of playable characters. Toys are scanned into the game using your tablet's built-in camera, and it's mostly easy to do. (One hero, Hiro Thunderbutt, wouldn't scan, and other users report similar problems). Props and vehicles also can be scanned, so after you've had the real-world fun of building the models, you can have fun with them again in-game. There's also a very subtle embedded message about diversity, as the villain is trying to make everyone the same and the city less "weird." The biggest drawback is the mismatch between the target age and the requirement that a parent provide personal information for kids under 13 to play. Parents will want to consider the privacy implications and set expectations about purchases before downloading. After that, they're almost sure to have fun.

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.
