Is It Any Good?

These mini-games are intended to be video game-like fun, but the subject matter on this app is very serious, and some kids may find the time limits frustrating. Parents may want to play World Rescue with their kids to explain these heavy, sometimes scary situations in more detail. It can undoubtedly help kids learn about many of the problems people around the world face today. But because kids must unlock each game before moving on, some kids may give up before learning all they can learn. It would be an improvement if kids were simply able to bypass games they didn't like or for which they weren't able to beat the time limits.

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.
