QUALITY
 

The STRAWBERRY SHORTCAKE app game asks players to sort falling fruit into different cups to make smoothies, while characters from the Strawberry Shortcake TV show make appearances at the top of the screen. The game is simple and entertaining for the first several go-arounds, as it introduces new play elements like sour fruit that should be thrown away instead of sorted. But, there's very little to it, and it can grow repetitive pretty quickly. Younger kids are probably the best audience for this game.
