Is It Any Good?

There are a couple of reasons why #IDARB appeals to players of all ages: It's fast, it's entertaining, and it's easy to get the hang of quickly. Everything is customizable, from the music to the characters, so players have lots of options for each match. This keeps the action fun even if it's the same arena game after game. It might not be easy to fully decipher lots of the characters thanks to their pixelated design, but younger players will have no problem warming up to them thanks to games such as Minecraft that have brought such animation back to the forefront.

Kids will like seeing their characters jumping around the screen, but they may have a hard time keeping track of their avatars if there are more than four players, since having more players turns on-field action into complete chaos. The one warning that should clearly be provided to parents is that they'll need to disable the live Twitter feed along the bottom of the screen to block the language and suggestible dialogue between players. If you can overlook the language and sometimes chaotic play, you'll find #IDARB is simple, silly fun.

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.
