Addicting !! Funny

Funny game and addicting they just added a 10 sec Ad screen link that you can tap through but is annoying. I understand Steppy is getting recogniztion and I'm sure advertising is paying you to add them. But it ruins the game to me:( as of now it's ooookk cause I can tap through but if I have to start watching videos I will delet this app. Other than that please add more costumes and scenery !! Maybe a kid along with the man and woman. Maybe water you can fall in love

Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

Though it initially balances frustration with success just enough to hook the player, the unpredictable controls and frequent failure might make it less than fun for some kids. If kids can stand the initial high-level frustration, there's definitely more skill to be developed here than in the similar game Crossy Road. When players learn how to time the Steppy Pants guy's strides and correctly decide if they should be stretched long or take teeny-tiny steps, walking starts to get easier. Getting a "delivery" of coins to change your character's look adds to the reward of making it further down the street. The instant replay and ability to create a GIF from gameplay is fun, too, though parents may not want their kids sharing to social media. It's also important to set expectations around purchases since there's no parent gate.

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.
