What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Truth or Dare - Kids Game is a digital version of the classic party game. The app includes hundreds of pre-loaded questions (for example, "Who's your best friend?" or "When was the most inappropriate time you farted?") and dares ("Do 30 push-ups" or "Do the macarena"). Up to six players can insert their name into the app per game. Players can also add their own questions and dares. There's no filter, so the content in additional questions or dares is user-dependent. Ads appear in between rounds and are sometimes for adult products and services or free apps with an "install" button. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

To play TRUTH OR DARE - KIDS GAME, tap Play, Add Dares, or Add Truths. Tap Play and add players' names. The first name entered plays first by tapping Truth or by tapping Dare. Choose Truth, and then verbally answer the question that appears and tap Completed. Or, tap Dare and perform the action that appears. Tap Forfeit if you don't want to answer. The next person's name appears to begin their turn as they choose Truth or Dare. Advertisement videos and players' scores appears in between rounds. Tap Add Dares or Add Truths to type custom content that will be added to the game. 

Is it any good?

This app adds nothing but advertisements to the old standard game of Truth or Dare. Some of the pre-loaded questions on Truth or Dare - Kids Game may be considered rude or inappropriate, so it's not great for younger kids who might have a more innocent take on the game if left to their own devices. What players add, however, is completely up to users. The app offers no rules, warnings, or suggestions that could make Truth or Dare safer or more kid-friendly. Also, the ads on Truth or Dare - Kids Game are for products and services for adults or are for free apps with an "install" button. Overall, this is one app that is most definitely not an improvement on the device-free version of the game.
