Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2):
Kids say (4):

As endless runners go, this one has lots of excitement, cool prizes and enhancements, and nice graphics, but iffy body-image messages, in-app purchase pushes, and tricky controls mar the experience. It also has the added bonus that the main character is a strong female role model (body-image and wardrobe issues aside). For tweens who are into the Winx Club, this game offers a fun opportunity to dive into their fantasy world. Though many of the levels are quite similar, there are plenty of missions and challenges to keep kids intrigued. Navigation is pretty easy, though sometimes Bloom isn't as responsive as kids might like her to be. For example, sometimes she's slow to react to swipes, or she jumps when you swipe down for her to slide. Another drawback is the app's aggressive push to sell in-app purchases. Sure, the download is free, but beware of the constant reminders of all the enhancements you can purchase with only a quick tap. The game may be fun, but parents will probably want to keep a close eye on their kids and/or be upfront about their family's rules on in-app purchases to avoid racking up a surprisingly high bill.

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.
