A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The game uses simple touch controls but on a tablet, they're awkwardly spaced, and play can get rather challenging.

 

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

Players can watch video ads to double their winnings of coins and gems. Coins, gems, and other items — including an ad-free option — are also available in the store, as are new playable characters.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Super Phantom Cat 2 is an arcade game for iOS and Android devices. As a cat tasked with saving their friend from an alien robot, you have to run and jump your way through a 2D side-scrolling obstacle course full of traps and other hazards. Content-wise, the game is safe; there's no sex, cursing, violence, use of drugs or alcohol, and so on. Commercially, the game has numerous ads you can watch to double your winnings of coins and gems. This includes when you find a secret treasure chest. There's also an in-game store where you can buy more coins and gems, as well as playable characters and a reprieve from all the ads. Also, for some players that have small hands or little kids, playing this game on a tablet could be somewhat challenging due to the spaced out nature of the on-screen buttons.

What's it about?

In SUPER PHANTOM CAT 2, Ina has been kidnapped by a robot in a space ship and it's up to you, as Ari, to save her. To do this, you have to keep running and jumping to the right, getting past all kinds of enemies and obstacles that are clever, sadistic, and good tests of your reflexes and problem-solving skills. In many ways, this feels similar to many other side-scrolling platform games, like the classic Mario games.

Is it any good?

It's always sad when one slight miscalculation ruins an otherwise fun (though not very original) arcade game. In Super Phantom Cat 2, you have to rescue a friend who's been kidnapped by an alien robot in a spaceship. To do so, you have to make your way to the right, running and jumping your way through a two-dimensional side-scrolling, obstacle course-like world full of clever traps that require split-second timing and on-your-feet thinking. So, yeah, it's basically like Super Mario Bros. if you swapped Mario for Hello Kitty.

But being unoriginal isn't the problem with this arcade game. Especially since its worlds are clever and intricate, providing players with challenges to both their intellects and their reflexes. No, the problem is that if you try to play this on a tablet you'll quickly realize that, because of their size and placement, the virtual buttons you use to go to the right is really far away from the edge of the screen. So much so that it's difficult to hold the tablet steady and play the game comfortably at the same time. And that's not just if you're a kid with small hands -- the same can be said of adults with average sized hands as well. Which is why people who play Super Phantom Cat 2 on their phones will jump for joy, but people who try to play it on a tablet will just jump off and play something else.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about advertising. In Super Phantom Cat 2, you earn coins and gems by playing, and double your earnings and winnings by watching ads, but is there a reason the developers did this? Why would they want you to watch ads?

  • Does it make sense to spend money on Super Phantom Cat 2 for things you can earn through playing the game? What about spending a little money to help the developers?
