best game

I've played fireboy and watergirl on hudgames for about 2 weeks and I've already been addicted to it!

Great game for my 8yo

My son loved this when it was free and we have just started this game as a paid player. It is $6 for the month and part of our "rules of the house." He still loves the game, and one of his favorite parts is his disco R2D2. We've made him sign a contract of the limitations of play and if there is any problems with school, behavior, etc. He can't play the game for a period of time. I wasn't ready for my 8yo to be playing online, but so far so good.

This title has:

Too much violence

Is It Any Good?

Clone Wars Adventures is a browser-based game with excellent graphics. The mini-games are varied and fun, with some of them providing quite a bit of challenge at higher levels. There are tower defense, memory-matching, and spot-the-differences games as well as others that employ familiar elements inspired by popular casual games, such as Peggle and Bejeweled. Several games, such as Speeder Bike racing, are multi-player and allow players to challenge their friends. One of the most popular is Light Saber duels, in which the player depresses arrow keys as per onscreen cues and then watches the characters fight out the bout.

There are 19 mini-games at launch with 13 of them free to play. More content will be added over time. The game starts off as free but the higher levels are subscriber-only. Subscription also provides some premium content such as additional games, special outfits, and pets, as well as larger housing that kids can customize. Free players are called Padawans but subscribers are Jedis and kids will see a large "Become a Jedi" button on the top menu bar. Luckily, the $5.99 subscription fee is relatively inexpensive, and most items are priced at just 25 cents. Station Cash can be earned by kids via in-game achievements, so it is possible to obtain "cool" items without paying real money for them.

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.
