You are your role model in this game.
Ease of Play
You play using the stylus to remove blocks, but this process isn't as simple as in real life. In the multiplayer modes, up to 4 players can play using one DS device or you can play with multiple devices over local Wi-Fi.

A digital version of the Jenga block game. Every block has JENGA written on it.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this is the video game version of the Jenga block-stacking game. If families already own a set of Jenga blocks, there's little incentive to buy the video game version as well -- unless they're planning to take a lot of road trips where it's not feasible to bring the Jenga blocks along.
Is It Any Good?
The video game version of Jenga isn't as visceral of an experience as the original game, and you don't get the same level of responsiveness from the blocks as you do in real life. As a result, it's much harder to tell when the tower is about to tip. The graphics are also middle-of-the-road, which makes it harder to see how the blocks interlock and where the openings are.
Jenga World Tour is no substitute for sitting around a table and playing the real thing, but it's a decent substitute for taking on car or bus rides.
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.
