On the strangeness scale, Tentacles: Enter the Dolphin ranks pretty high toward the top. The game, after all, is about a multi-tentacled organism (who regenerates health by ripping out and eating the eyes of other microorganisms) traveling through the colon, brain, and other organs of a dolphin/human hybrid scientist. But, somewhat surprisingly, it's actually a heck of a lot of fun.

It might be a little gross, but the game design is incredibly well done -- and the mechanics are easy to grasp, which makes it very accessible. It's just challenging enough, though, and it's replayable. There are few games that take advantage of the touchscreen as well as this one. And even fewer do so with such a wonderful sense of whimsy.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
