Turns out, making games can be even more fun than playing them, but these are simple, pixel-style graphics for the easier-to-create games, so kids should have realistic expectations. Though users aren't manipulating code, the more advanced-level creation tool for the platformer game does allow HD graphics. Kids and teens will find inspiration from games they're already familiar with but also can see what others have created. The drawing tools include different colors and brush size options along with fill and undo commands -- simple but effective. For kids and teens who want to create minus the coding, this tool empowers them to make and share their own simple games.

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.
