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.

A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this game.

Positive Messages

There are no overtly positive or negative messages included in the game.

Positive Role Models

Players take on the role of a chicken looking for lost eggs, but there's no character development attached to the gameplay.

Ease of Play

The first 20 or so levels are exceptionally easy, but the difficult ramps up quickly from there. 

Violence & Scariness

The chicken can die in several violent cartoonish ways, but no blood or gore's shown.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that All of You is a puzzle game exclusively for Apple Arcade. The gameplay uses a unique game mechanic, making it essentially a playable cartoon strip. There's no objectionable content (even when you die, it's in a cartoonish and bloodless fashion), but the non-traditional game style might throw some players off initially. You'll play and pause time in each level's panes as a mother chicken goes on the hunt for her lost chicks, and while it starts off easy, it ramps up in its difficulty.

What's it about?

In ALL OF YOU, after losing her chicks, a clumsy mother chicken hunts them down one by one in an ever-escalating series of puzzles. Each level plays out in a series of round panes, which the player can play in real time. Some panels that you come across can't be paused, while some can be flipped or switch places with adjacent panes, which helps you solve the puzzle. Each level is notably different from the others, which gives the game a good degree of variety. 

Is it any good?

There's something exciting about playing an entirely different type of game. And All of You is definitely something unique. The mechanics of time manipulation in a three (or six or 9 or 12) 'frame' level takes some getting used to -- and there isn't a lot of explanation about how to play. But once you get the hang of it, it quickly becomes consuming. The levels are unique and challenging (once the game assumes you know what you're doing), but can be too challenging sometimes. And with no help option or audio cues to aid you in completing the task, that could frustrate players. 

There's definitely a puzzle element here, but you'll also occasionally need to time things just right -- and those occasions are far from obvious. One one level, you can pause a frame at what seems like the right moment (when a giant's eyes were closed), only to discover that the game requires them to be only half closed. That can easily cause 20 minutes of aggrivation on a single short level. The occasional brief moments showing the mother with her reunited chicks really don't add anything to the game, either. There's plenty of diversity, though. Levels stand on their own, with everything from forests to dragons to water. That makes it easier to forgive some of the flaws, but not ignore them entirely. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about finding new ways to do well-known things. Do you find that this translates over to playing certain kinds of video games? Do puzzle games help you look at things in a different way because you have to analyze things to create clever solutions?

  • What would you do to help a family member in need? Would you go on an adventure, or would you look to others to help?
