A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

Supercow uses three controls: left, right, and jump. The app gives you four different ways to access those controls. Jumping always requires a tap on the screen, but to move, you can tilt, slide your finger on the screen, or press left and right arrows. The last option comes with a left-handed or right-handed orientation.

Violence

Supercow stops her enemies by jumping on their heads. There is no blood and the defeated characters just bounce off the screen. Supercow can be harmed by other characters throwing things, biting, or stinging her. The introduction to the story shows the villain, Professor Duriarti, dangling a tearful bunny by the ears.

Sex
Language

While there is no cursing, there is some humor that is advanced for young kids. There are jokes about hemorrhoids and using laxatives to subdue the animals.

Consumerism

The main page of the app has ads for other games by the publisher along with links to their website. The main page of the game encourages you to post to Twitter or Facebook every day to earn a free extra life.

Is it any good?

SUPERCOW is cartoony, platforming fun. Kids will enjoy exploring the levels and searching for coins as much as knocking out spiders, gophers, crows, frogs, dogs, and other enemies. The only drawback is a goofy storyline that is dragged down further by mature potty humor. With 50 levels, there is plenty of play value, especially if kids want to strive for a perfect score and to win all of the in-game trophies.
