What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Super Senso is a cartoony, turn-based combat game. Using tanks, planes, and Transformer-like robots, as well as strategy and your wits, you have to defeat your enemies, who can be other people you play online. But because it's all rather cartoony, there's no blood, gore, or dismemberment. Nor is there any inappropriate content or profanity allowed. Using in-game currency that's earned or bought with real money, players can upgrade attack units they already own or buy new ones. Read the app's privacy policy in the "Info" section of the game's "Options" menu or on the game's website to find out about the information collected and shared.

What's it about?

In SUPER SENSO, players have to stop the evil Phantasmo by battling his minions. In this arena battle game, you have to decide when to deploy new troops, and when to send ones already engaged, in hopes of defeating the bad guy and saving the day. But while you have a full complement of tanks, giant robots, and other attack units, so does he. You can also use strategy and your managerial skills to play against other players online instead.

Is it any good?

For people who enjoy tactical combat without realism, this turn-based combat game will provide hours of strategic fun. In Super Senso, you use tanks, planes, and even giant robots and some surprising soldiers to defeat your enemies and destroy the Senso-Gate they use to bring in reinforcements. Played on a grid, which limits your movement, you have to decide whether to attack, deploy new units, or try to trick your enemies with a classic pincer maneuver. However, of course, you only have a limited number of action points per turn, which limits how many attacks you can launch and how many troops you can deploy. As you progress, you earn upgrades for your units, as well as new units you can use in battle, which can be fought against the computer or other players online. But while all the planning and politeness involved in waiting your turn might bore action junkies, and the cartoonish nature may turn off serious armchair generals, any gamer who's thoughtful, careful, and a fan of cartoony tanks and robots will find a lot to enjoy on Super Senso's field of battle.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about violence in games. Given that this game is cartoony and doesn't have blood or gore, does it make you feel any better when you attack someone? While you are often attacking enemy tanks, vehicles, and robots, you also can attack soldiers. Do you feel bad about hitting people with missiles and bombs?

  • Talk about money management. Given that you can earn upgrades and in-game currency, do you think it makes sense to sink a lot of money into this game? Conversely, does it make sense to spend a little so the people who made it know you enjoy their game?
