A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this game.
The purpose of the game is have fun with musical rhythms.
Positive Role Models
Our hero is an alien once believed to be villainous but who now strives to do the right thing. He does use a small amount of violence to bump enemies from his path, but it’s not the focus of his actions or the game.
Ease of Play
With multiple difficulty levels, this game will help early grade schoolers find some success while older children will be challenged on the more difficult settings.
Violence & Scariness
Stitch jumps up and knocks over some of the enemies in his path, but it’s difficult to tell just how he does it. Tackling is perhaps the best description. No characters are ever killed or permanently injured; it’s more of a cartoonish whacking and knocking-out sort of thing.

This game features characters originally made popular in Disney’s Lilo and Stitch movie.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Disney Stitch Jam is a rhythm game for kids that features a modicum of violence. The titular alien often pushes and tackles his enemies, knocking them out of his way. No characters ever seem permanently injured; the tone of the game is upbeat, and our hero’s quest is noble. Note that while the game is offline only, players can access DGamer, Disney’s online community for kids.
Is It Any Good?
The rhythm-based action is polished and fun. Both control schemes are responsive and forgiving, which should ensure minimal player frustration, and the trio of difficulty settings means both younger and older kids should be properly and adequately challenged. And it looks and sounds great. Stitch and his friends animate like cartoons, the three-dimensional backgrounds they inhabit are lush and detailed, and the music, composed of a mixture of slower and faster paced upbeat ditties, is a pleasure.
The only significant problem is brevity. With just ten stages, experienced young gamers could finish the story mode and have their fill of the unlockable modes in a single day. Still, the fun rhythm-based play and multiple difficulty levels makes the story mode highly replayable. Plus, it only costs $19.99.
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.
