The questions span topics from swimming strokes to movies and the human body, but the constant ads and pressure to buy ruins the fun of testing your knowledge. Trivia Crack Adventure's difficulty level can vary -- some questions are pretty basic, but others might be challenging for younger kids who aren't familiar with concepts like zodiac signs or what items are vectors. Gamers of all ages may struggle with the single-player game's structure because it's not explained very clearly, and your first few moves mainly just involve guesswork. At first glance, the Candyland-esque board and features like tunnel shortcuts that deposit you elsewhere, and other surprises make the dual-player game seem like it'll be a fun experience. That game can be confusing, though, because if users don't have notifications enabled for the app, they'll need to check back often to see if the other player is done and it's their turn. Games can potentially stretch out for days as a result, which takes away from the momentum and fun factor.

But the frequent ads are really the main issue. In addition to banner ads on some pages, messages about special in-app currency packages you can buy often pop up, and full-screen commercials require players to interact with them, making it seem like watching these ads are your only option for progress. Whether you run out of coins for additional game sessions, or try to start new games, you're still subjected to lengthy ads, even if you try to exit that particular screen just to go back to the homepage. The app also periodically presents other ways they can spend money, like buying some items, for example, to help them get the right answer, or paying to change the trivia topic. While you can avoid these options, you may not be able to sidestep getting locked out of playing early on, though, or getting trapped into watching ads repeatedly. As a result, they may want to just skip this Trivia Crack Adventure and stay home.

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.
