Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this site is a hub of games that are updated every weekday. As with most multi-themed game sites, kids will inevitably come across a mix of pointless games, educational games, violent games, obscene games, and entertaining games -- and parents should be prepared to spend some time on the site finding ones that are good for their kids to play. Although there are plenty of safe and educational games, some of the games are sick and twisted (especially those in the section called Shooting Games!). The site also links to other gaming sites, which can contain violent and inappropriate material. Also note: the virtual currency costs real money.
Is It Any Good?
A lot of the games are harmless -- and some are even educational. There's a completely addicting "Mini-Putt" game where you can practice your miniature golf skills, or "50 States," where you learn geography by dropping a state onto its correct spot on a map.
But there are also games that feature obscene material, drinking, swearing, and violence to humans and animals. Take "Five Finger Pellet," for example: The game's object is to stab a knife into a table as many times as you can without hitting any of your handcuffed victim's fingers. To top it off, when the victim gets sliced and blood spurts out, he belts out a menacing screaming sound. Or, there's a little game called "Animal Hunter" that involves a Robin Hood character shooting arrows at cute little bunnies and ducks while strolling through a Tolkienesque forest, backed up by an Enya-inspired, bird-chirping soundtrack. The site uses a bomb icon to warn users that a game "may or may not be suitable for ages 13 and older."
Online interaction: Registered users have the option of playing with a friend, and can connect with friends through Facebook to play. They can also leave comments, which tend to be game-focused without personal attacks.
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.
