It Girl Is Still Really Good I Wish I Have It Back. It Girl Is The Best.

I think you Crowdstar should bring It Girl back. Because I've been playing with It Girl since 2011 to 2016. Unfortunately, for some reasons they shut it down. Now, I wish they bring it all back. You can go to either Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorers. Right now, I'm Google.

Is It Any Good?

Crowdstar's It Girl can be viewed as a harmless game where girls can play dress-up and strive to be the belle of the party; or it can be seen as a game that promotes materialism and thoughtless behavior. Since players of the same level shop at the same stores and each store carries a limited number of items, the only way to distinguish your character is to pay for select items from the cash store. Players who start at a time when the game is giving out free gifts of clothing with high hotness rating (as was the case during the 12 Days of Christmas) will have an advantage, but these items may also be purchased with real cash.

Since Confidence points are important during Show Downs, the ability to call a friend for a Confidence Boost is an important part of the game. Unfortunately, a frustrating bug we encountered quite a number of times is the one that prevents you from Calling a friend for a Confidence boost. This bug is known and has existed since launch in September 2010. All boosts can also be bought, as can clique members.

Online interaction: To get ahead in this game, the player needs to have a large social circle of friends all playing the game so as to create a clique. The size of the clique is a factor in winning "Show Downs," and in giving, sharing, and receiving boosts. This play mechanic opens up privacy issues as players may feel pressure to add "friends" they do not know to their social network via "It Girl Add" pages on Facebook.

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.
