Is It Any Good?

LITTLE SPACE HEROES is a fun online game because it presents a colorful space-age world that is easy to navigate. By exploring the scenery, kids will find many built-in games. Clicking on a game console, a cutting board in a kitchen, or a rocket launch pad all lead to mini-games. Kids can personalize their gaming experience by choosing to be a girl, a boy, or an alien; and then participate in the usual activities found in a virtual world, such as playing mini-games to earn coins, decorating their houses, buying pets and clothing, and chatting using safe-chat or filtered chat. The game does a good job with keeping kids safe because it has 24/7 moderation and an easy method of reporting any abuse.

The lack of tutorials may create a bit of frustration as kids learn to do things and play games by trial-and-error. Some of the mini-games do not "save" - i.e. kids do not get any credit if they leave the game instead of seeing it to the very end, so parents might want to remind kids to stick with a mini-game once they have started it.

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.
