Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This collection of cancer battling games is a blast, both literally and figuratively. Each game stands out in its own way, from the surprising strategy and imaginative weapons of Nanobot's Revenge to the exotically beautiful vascular backgrounds and smooth, gliding action of Feeding Frenzy. And Special Ops -- the deepest and most sophisticated of them all -- acts as a fine and satisfying reward for the hours of effort players will put into the first five games.

However, the real treasure here is the clever way in which these games teach kids about cancer and medicine. It puts images to the abstract concept of treatment, allowing players to imagine how the drugs and chemicals and radiation used to eradicate mutated, cancerous cells might actually work (even if in cartoonish, fantastical ways). It may even give kids suffering the disease a more positive perspective on the nausea-inducing medicine they receive from doctors.

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.
