Is It Any Good?

TIMBERMAN is much, much better than it should be. It's an insanely addictive game that uses a very basic style of play, meaning when you die (and, to be sure, you will die -- frequently), you immediately start another round. Even better, it's a game that offers players options. Want to play for free? Fine, but you'll have to look at an occasional ad. Hate ads? For 99 cents you can bypass them.

Like Flappy Bird, Timberman is a fast-paced game, but it's not incredibly hard. In fact, it's pretty simple -- but you'll still die frequently, most likely as you get overly involved and hit "chop" one too many times on the wrong side of the screen, driven by the game's music and the ticking time bar at the top of the screen. That only adds to the fun, though -- and those are ingredients that can turn an app into a phenomenon.

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.
