One of the best games for children

This game has a lot of violence and language such as throwing watermelon as pedestrians in the park and having a text-off where you see who can type " my teacher sucks eggs" the fastest. But I think kids should have video games like this ( throwing fruit at children at parks and saying that teachers suck eggs ) because it make your child think differently in a good way!! I mean who DOSENT want there child throwing fruits at employs at target. Lol.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Is It Any Good?

iCarly: Groovy Foodie uses a very classic and tested gameplay format. As a result, it is exactly what players should expect from a time management game -- keep an eye on all the customers, memorize different customer patterns to develop strategies, and stay focused for the duration of each round in order to serve every customer successfully. What makes this game unique is the iCarly branding. Players can unlock "random dancing" upgrades, and many of the different restaurants and customers are from the iCarly TV series. There are also "boss" customers that players must serve repeatedly until they are satisfied, and each of these is a different nemesis from the show. In short, iCarly fans will appreciate the references in this game, but even without that tie-in, the game stands up solidly on its own.
