Igor is a simple game and suffers from repetitive gameplay. The goals for most levels are nearly identical: collect paper flowers scattered around the environment until you have enough to be allowed access to the next area. There is the occasional puzzle -- you might need to slot a cog into a machine to make it start to spin, or perform an electrical attack to power up a device -- but these challenges are both rudimentary and rare.

The developers tried to mix things up a bit by giving each of the four main characters, whom you can switch between at will, specific abilities. Scamper, for example, can jump extraordinarily high but has weak attacks, while Brain can hardly get off the ground but fires powerful rockets from his mechanical arm. However, the limits of these abilities are explored in the game's first couple of levels. Since the game has a very small number of levels, gung-ho kids will be able to finish the game within a single night. And there's little in the way of replay value, save trying to achieve higher scores. Younger children who enjoyed the movie will undoubtedly have fun taking on the roles of their favorite characters in the game, but everyone else would do well to take a pass.

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.
