Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (3 ):

There's definitely something attractive in the simple presentation of the game: You are an orange square which zips along and must jump on black square and jump over triangles. But the whole things moves as such speed and requires such absolute precision that it feels, well, impossible. But that is the whole point of this app --THE IMPOSSIBLE GAME takes pride in its extreme difficulty. And perhaps there are people out there who thrive on the challenge and are willing to attempt the same little section of a game over and over and over until they manage to make it past. But for casual gamers, it feels more like punishment than fun. If a tough challenge appeals to you, by all means, try the game.

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.
