Offensive title, but silly, fleeting fun.

A lot or a little?

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

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that they'll need to define the term "moron," and that they'll want to discuss with kids why they shouldn't use such an insulting word. Otherwise, this app is harmless, short-lived fun.

Is it any good?

The Moron Test is a series of straightforward questions and exercises mixed in with gags to trip you up.

The game does teach kids to pay attention, and it's amusing at least the first time through, even kind of fun to try to beat old times. But the questions get stale quickly.
