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.

Excellent Game

It’s really a marvellous game, the music is great and the level design is not too difficult but not too easy. No violence at all, some music may be a little too intense for a 3 or 4 year old.
