Though it's a Facebook exclusive, Pig Up! is a game that could easily be played on any platform. And that, in itself, is an incredible achievement. But the game's real strength is its utterly addictive nature. It's the video game equivalent of a potato chip: Playing just once is nearly impossible. Fighting to top your friend's scores adds a fun, safe competitive edge to the game. It also motivates you to improve, since a special flapple is deployed -- giving you thousands of points and three extra flaps -- whenever you pass the most recent high score set by your friends.

The game is still in preview/beta mode and PopCap will likely be adding new power-ups and perhaps new enemies, but even in its incomplete state it's one of the best games on the social network site.

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.
