Is It Any Good?

Kids say: Not yet rated

TIKIQUATIONS provides a clever and nonintimidating way to introduce kids to the difficult concept of chemical equations. With the proper support from parents and teachers, this game can make a big difference in mastering some tricky material, especially for kids for whom chemistry is scary or seemingly too hard. Unfortunately, the difficulty increases quickly, and if the player hasn't fully grasped the underlying concepts, it might become too hard. The game's characters do offer advice but rarely the sort of guidance that would make moving ahead more fun. Still, for those who get it, it's a quick, fun experience that can help bring fearful new chemists up to speed.

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.
