Is It Any Good?

Sprinkle Junior is an accessible, safe, and straightforward game; it's only shortcoming is that it doesn't strike the right balance between simplicity and challenge. Kids certainly can have fun spraying water around, feeding alien monsters, and manipulating silly objects in this extraterrestrial environment, but there are only a few instances where water physics make a difference or where they really need to figure things out, such as when kids must put vegetables in a pot before taking it off the fire. Also, kids are free to choose whichever level they want at whatever time, which allows for great flexibility, but it also eliminates the sense of achievement or progress kids get from passing levels. On the other hand, with no instruction or hints, some kids might get stuck on certain levels and not know to drag and move items out of the way. Most kids will figure things out and have a great time, but a little more depth and a few more options would make this app amazing.

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.
