A lot or a little?

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

Ease of Play

On-screen instructions and a hand icon guide players through gameplay, but choosing which "fig" to use for what battle might be hard for some kids.

Violence & Scariness

Mild cartoon-style violence during the battles, but some of it can be rather aggressive as the losing "fig" is thrown back violently or hit repeatedly. 

Sexy Stuff
Language

No profanity; however, this app has a lot of snarky and mean talk such as "twerp," "annoying kid," and "stupid."

Consumerism

Logos for Cartoon Network, DC Comics, Warner Bros., and the app's developer (Grumpyface) all appear whenever kids open the app. No actual in-app purchases, but part of the gameplay is based on kids collecting up to 70 Teen Titans action figures, a few of which can be purchased in real stores.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Teeny Titans -- A Teen Titans Go! Figure Battling Game is a role-play app in which kids collect up to 70 Teen Titans figures ("figs") and choose which ones they want to use in different battles with opponents. A short cartoon animation at the beginning of the game that stars some of the Teen Titans Go! TV show characters sets the stage. Then your player travels around Jump City, going to toy stores to choose figures to include on their squad. Though there are no in-app purchases, some of the figures are available in stores for real money. At times, the figs trash-talk and trade snarky comments with each other (players don't choose what their figs say). Read the app's privacy policy to find out about the information collected and shared.

What's it about?

First, players watch a short cartoon that introduces them to the storyline of TEENY TITANS -- A TEEN TITANS GO! FIGURE BATTLING GAME. Then they tap "Go!" to start the game. On-screen instructions tell players to go to the toy store to get the Teen Titans Robin character action figure ("fig"). A hand icon visually guides kids where to swipe Robin to move him down the street toward the toy store. Enter the toy store and swipe to search for the Robin card among many action figure cards. Once the player finds him, that fig goes into their squad. Robin then enters a battle with another Teen Titans character. Players watch the moving bar and tap one of the icons that indicate Robin's powers to battle the opponent for points and eventually win or lose the battle. As the game progresses, players must travel around the city to collect other "figs," choosing one based on the information on the backs of their cards about the types of powers they have that you need to assemble a squad of six, three of which can go into battle together in each battle, with one battling the opponent at a time and trading places in and out of the battle with the other two. Players can collect all 70 figs, but most have to stay in "storage" until they trade one off their squad for one in storage.

Is it any good?

This role-play game includes some really fun action-figure cards and requires some strategy, but the violence and trash talk might turn some parents off. So long as kids enjoy poring over each fig's information, the battles can be fun. But if your kid isn't into weighing each fig's powers over the current opponent's powers, the battle part of Teeny Titans could be both confusing and frustrating. Also, the snarky comments and trash-talking that happen between the characters may require a parent reminder to kids playing this game that that kind of talk isn't typically a great way to communicate with others in real life, even during competition. Still, many fans will easily connect with the app and thoroughly enjoy collecting many (or all!) 70 action figures.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about the snarky language and general hard time that action figures give each other in this game, even outside the battles. Ask your kid how they think a friend would feel in real life if they talked to that friend that way, and how they would feel if a friend spoke to them like that. What would be some better ways to talk and have fun while you're in competitive and game situations?

  • Discuss the violence in the game. How realistic is it? Is the violence important to the game? Why?

  • Talk about each character and their powers. Which action figure does your kid like the best? Which do you? Why?

  • This game has often been compared to Pokémon. If your kid is a Pokémon fan, ask them about the similarities and differences between this game and Pokémon.
