A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

Simple gameplay, easy to learn. Players move around the map, talking to or fighting other characters and collecting or buying new figures to add to their teams. Battles are a matter of timing, waiting for moves to charge before unleashing them on opponents.

Violence & Scariness

Characters fight each other with a variety of martial arts, magic, and alien/tech abilities, including eye beams, spell blasts, and throwing stars. The art style is very cartoonish; no blood shown.

Sexy Stuff
Language

Occasional lines of dialogue have some potty humor, such as a character saying "oh, dookie" when he loses a match.

Consumerism

The game is essentially an ad for the Teen Titans GO! cartoon and DC Comics in general. It's also a direct sequel to Teeny Titans. Players can bolster their roster of figures via microtransactions. While spending actual money can give players a jumpstart, it's not a requirement, and there's very little pressure to do so.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Teen Titans GO Figure! is an action role-playing game (RPG) available for purchase on iOS and Android devices. The game is based on the Teen Titans GO! cartoon series, which stars a slew of characters from DC Comics' stable of comic book heroes and villains. It's also the direct sequel to Cartoon Network's popular Teeny Titans mobile game. Players collect small figures of DC characters and put them into teams to battle against other characters. The figures use all kinds of abilities, from basic melee weapons to super powers to wacky off-the-wall slapstick, but the cartoonish visuals and lack of blood limit the impact of the game's violence. While the game has microtransactions that allow players to purchase rare characters and other items, it's possible to earn all of them in-game as well. Be ready for some potty humor, like characters who say "oh, dookie" when they lose a match.

What's it about?

TEEN TITANS GO FIGURE! is the latest adventure starring the young DC superheroes. They might have saved the world (and waffles) from destruction once or twice, but now the Teen Titans are facing their greatest threat yet: the cancellation of their favorite game, Teeny Titans. After a trademark issue with the Justice League makes matters more complicated, the Titans decide to investigate ... which is really just an excuse to start their collections all over again. Sure, there may be crimes to fight in Jump City, Gotham, Metropolis, and beyond, but what's really important to these heroes is collecting all those nifty figures and earning the title of Teeny Titans World Champion. Players pick their favorite Titan and set out for adventure, taking on friends and enemies alike in three-vs.-three battles with teams built from more than 90 different figures representing all corners of the DC Universe.

Is it any good?

This fantastic action role-playing game (RPG) brings more locations, super powers, jokes, and figures that are sure to appeal to fans of the cartoon and newcomers as well. Teen Titans GO Figure! takes everything fans loved about the original game and cranks it up a few notches, making it a bigger, better experience. The game is filled with silly humor that appeals to kids and adults alike. Its over-the-top slapstick stays fun and fresh in spite of (or in many cases, because of) its complete absurdity. But even without that, you still have a surprisingly rich game with lots of nuance. What initially seems like an overly simplified game of "wait and see" evolves into gameplay with deep strategic elements. Should you bring a group of figures that have a strong team bonus or focus on the rock-paper-scissors style of attacks? Maybe it's best to switch around the placement of a figure's moves or to add a little power boost via a mod chip?

Regardless of how you want to play, Teen Titans GO Figure! gives you options. Although the game supports microtransactions for those who want to get a jumpstart on their collections, the game never pressures players to spend more than the initial asking price for the app. And since it's a single-player experience, there's never that "pay to win" feeling. Instead, it feels more like an accomplishment when you earn that shiny new Batman or Shazam all on your own. Overall, Teen Titans GO Figure! lets players embrace both their inner collector and inner superhero in a fun action game that will keep them playing for hours.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about consumerism and tie-ins. How do tie-in products like games and toys help keep fans interested in certain shows or movies? Do you think the Teen Titans GO! show drives kids to games like Teen Titans GO Figure! -- or vice versa?

  • Is the impact of violence in a game like Teen Titans GO Figure! affected by the visuals' cartoonish nature? Or because the source material is a cartoon itself?

  • What are some of the advantages and disadvantages of microtransactions in games? What makes a game a "pay to win" experience? Is it better if purchases feel optional and are able to be earned through gameplay or if they're exclusives that might not otherwise be available?
