Tlaloc, the evil character, might scare younger children, but his henchmen are nothing more than bumbling sidekicks with an air of comic relief. The tomb scenes with the mummies rising from the dead also have scare potential but the context is humorous and not intended to be scary. Children may also be surprised by the cuddly-looking animals in the game that often throw things at Tak or punch him when he provokes them with his weapon.

The collecting missions will be very familiar to most children who have played games in the past and may get tedious after a while. But the silly humor and Juju powers help break up the general repetitiveness of collecting items. The designers have even thrown in a few snowboarding levels, sheep-maneuvering missions, and a mission where Tak must dress in a chicken suit. Add to that the jumping and swinging from platform to platform high above canyons and rivers, and Tak and the Power of Juju becomes a game worth hours of enjoyment.

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.
