There's not much to UP WITH A FISH -- you just keep catching things onto an increasingly large, precariously balanced pile of junk -- but it's bizarrely exhilarating and a whole lot of fun. The idea of taking the made-up game that the Cat in the Hat plays in his book and turning it into a mobile app is pretty brilliant. It's the perfect kind of game for an iPhone, played by simply tilting the device back and forth. Up with a Fish is proof that incredibly simple games can still be amazing fun when they're produced as a quality app.

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.
