A lot or a little?

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

Positive Messages

There isn't much of a story, but players will understand that they are on a quest to ensure the safety and peace of the Gummy Bear kingdom. Most of the game is spent jumping around platforms and solving puzzles, with the ultimate goal of reaching the evil King Sour Berry and kicking him out of the kingdom for good. The game exudes positivity with all sorts of colorful environments and bright graphics, with very mild violence only a minor part of the experience.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The role models in this game are the gummy bear characters, who want to ensure the Gummy Bear kingdom remains a friendly, peaceful place. However, King Sour Berry adds a counterbalance to the otherwise sweet village and poses a mortal threat to the gummy inhabitants. That being said, the game is more about the actual platform-traversing gameplay than any sort of character development or storyline.

Ease of Play

This game requires rudimentary puzzle-solving skills to figure out how to navigate around the various platforms, candy cane poles, graham cracker contraptions, etc., that are placed in each level. Most players will have no trouble completing the game.

Violence & Scariness

Players can jump on enemy candy creatures to destroy them and clear their path. The creatures simply disappear when defeated.

Language
Consumerism

The stars of the game are a popular kind of candy produced by various manufacturers. After playing, kids may well find themselves craving the confection the next time they see it in a store.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Gummy Bears Magical Medallion is a "platformer" game in which players control a gummy bear character who must make his way through the magic gummy kingdom to reach evil King Sour Berry, who threatens the long-running peace and prosperity of the kingdom. Throughout the game, players traverse chocolate platforms, licorice rollers, and all sorts of confection-themed environments while solving puzzles and jumping on nefarious candy creatures. It is a fun, casual game designed to be accessible to younger players. Note, though, that the depiction of recognizable confections could cause candy cravings.

Evidence of good thought, lack of execution, B/B+

As a former neo-nazi myself, I recognize that salute from a mile away. And the first scene in the game is a welcome and friendly introduction to such values as... Continue reading

What's it about?

In GUMMY BEARS MAGICAL MEDALLION, players take the role of a gummy bear who has to chase after the evil King Sour Berry and make sure the kingdom remains strong and prosperous. The story is not a pivotal part of the game. Instead, players mostly focus on traveling through colorful environments and managing the platforms and puzzles found throughout the kingdom. There are 12 different levels to explore, and each is filled with a unique set of confections and a sugary landscape.

Is it any good?

Gummy Bears Magical Medallion functions like a standard platformer game. It has all the requisite elements, including: a good number of levels; a mix of straightforward walking/exploring and puzzle-solving; and a practice-makes-perfect style of gameplay. In addition, the aesthetic of the candy and chocolate world is both fun and unique.

However, the actual gameplay feels formulaic and unoriginal and doesn't do much to inspire or challenge players. The end result is a game that's fun and interesting but not overly exciting or rewarding. Amateur players will likely get some enjoyment from this title, but more seasoned players may leave feeling unfulfilled.
