Thomas Tilt and Go
A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Thomas Tilt and Go is racing game for toddlers, based on the popular children's television series. Players must collect objects along the track to advance in the game. There's a time challenge, which encourages players to keep moving forward, but the app does not present any real hurdles. Kids will enjoy the chance to play as Thomas, Percy, or Toby.
Is it any good?
There's nothing particularly educational about Thomas Tilt and Go, but kids who are big fans of the television show will enjoy the chance to control some of their favorite characters. It's not a challenging game, either. As long as the player keeps Thomas moving forward, he or she will easily earn enough points to advance with time to spare. (They're rewarded with short clips from the television show.) The upside of this is kids won't get frustrated, but unless they're die-hard fans of the show, the might get bored after one or two tracks. The gameplay is virtually identical from level to level. Is it worth $2.99? No. But if the price falls, it's a good, safe addition for young children
