Cute But Not So Kid Friendly Dress Up Game… An App/Game Review of Love Nikki-Dress UP Queen

Love Nikki-Dress Up Queen by Elex

Type: Dress Up

Basic Game Setup: Nikki ends up on accident in a magical land that is ruled by who’s wearing what. To save the world, Nikki has to dress like the best in all styles and shades.


Game Play and Plot: 3½/5 Average: The game seemed to be a cross between a dress up game and a game where you travel worlds fixing people’s problems like Candy Crush or Homescapes. One travels through levels competing in dress up competitions with various characters over who fits the style theme better. One must wisely buy clothes and accessories to beat the characters in the game. The creators are very involved in the game creating various goals to, outfit sets, and side stories to entertain players.

While I will say that while this is much deeper than a majority of dress up games- and I highly applaud that- it does have some weaknesses. The plot is good for a dress up game (how many dress up games even have a plot?), but the dialogue tends to be weak. It kind of goes, “I’m in a hurry” or “I have a problem… by the way, want to have a fashion contest?” As if that wasn’t random or awkward at all. Nikki must be saying, “While you need to leave for your interview in three minutes let me go shopping and compare my clothes to yours!” On a more positive side, I do give the game points for having voice actors and actresses for the various characters. That’s something I would like to see in more games. The creators did care about making the game interesting and attention getting, they just didn’t write the greatest dialogue. (Think along the lines of puzzle game dialogue.)

On a more social side, the game can be hooked up to one’s Facebook account and make in game friends, but there is the safer, no friend option of being a guest. This saves the data on the device rather than online, meaning you lose the data if your delete the game, but don’t have contact with strangers.

Graphics: 4½/5 Amazing Quality: The game has beautiful, well drawn graphics that exceed a majority of dress up games. It’s obvious that the creators didn’t just want to make another children’s game that would be lost in a menagerie of children’s games. Time and care was taken to make beautiful, detailed outfits that are every cosplayer and fashionistas dream come true. Some may even see some of the outfits as inspiration when making ones own clothing.

Overall: 3½/5 Above Average: This is, in many ways, a fashion game at its finest. Beautiful clothes, a moderately suspenseful story, and good voice acting all make this game more meaningful than the cheesy dress up games that might be on your five your old niece’s tablet. In quality only, I would recommend this game to girls under eight to fourteen. Unfortunately, there’s more to games than quality. There’s the moral content.

Moral Content

Official Rating: E

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 3/5 Immodest Clothing and Undergarments: There are numerous low and short dresses, shorts, and skirts that show off immodesty, and sometimes the stomach. The character can be undressed to their underwear. There are net stocking and underwear combos, with varying detail and descriptions, as well as at swimsuits and bikinis. One is even named Victoria’s Secret, and another makes a joke about how the lace, though covering more, won’t take away any sexiness. Your clothing can be “sexy” or have a “sexy” theme, and girls from one land are said to dress in a “sexy, bad girl” style. “Prince’s of true love” is the title of an achievement, though it does not actually have to do with kissing (I think).

There are “lolita” style clothing, but this is NOT in any way in reference to the book, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov (which is basically about a man’s ‘romantic’ obsession twelve year old). Lolita fashion in Japan is merely a feminine, innocent fashion style that has nothing to do with the novel.

Violence: ½/5 Brief Mention: A woman says a “cat… assaulted” her. (Not sexually.) Swordmen and hunting games are mentioned.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 0/5 None

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 1/5 Some Disturbing Content: Some of the ghost themes have skeletons and creepy corn dolls. It is mentioned that a king died, and his picture is shown. War, the war spirit, and armies are mentioned. Characters are mentioned to have been crying. “Kill” is used for descriptive purposes.

Religious Issues: 2/5 Frequent Mention: Someone is called a “Reincarnated Goddess,” though it is not clear if she is or not. Women are called goddesses in stories. ”There are several “goddess” outfits and clothes named after false goddesses like Athena. Clothing can have a “goddess” and/or a “hindu” theme. It mentions that people “worshiped style and design” in the country the game is set in. There is at least one mention of a seer. There is at least one mention of karma. There are mentions of ghosts, and there are ghost themed events. There is mention of a demon in one outfit. There are clothes that reference the Chinese zodiac. There is a good luck fortune cat.

Magic: 2/5 Some Reference and Use: A women says she summoned a character. There are witch outfits. There are mentions of elves, fairies, dryads, phantoms, and vampires in clothing and/or in general. There are clothes based off of fairy tales such as Snow White. “Fairy tale” and “magical” used for descriptive purposes.

Others: The main character can dress up in manly clothes. “Alice in Wonderland” is mentioned, and there is clothing based off of it. “Barbie” is mentioned at least once. There are dancer, gothic, pop, rock, and unisex style clothing, outfits, and descriptions. Dancing is mentioned. The player can wear tattoos. A cat says it will “fall in love” with the human player for dressing so well, though this is likely not a serious comment. “Wine” is used for descriptive purposes.

Overall: 3½/5 Almost Teenage Appropriate: I started this game honestly hoping this would be kind of like Barbie when it came to modesty, a little too revealing but in the end not meaning any harm. Then came the net stockings and black underwear that nobody needs to be seeing. I honestly don’t see who the company was trying to reach; children that won’t pick up on the adult jokes and fashions or adults that probably wouldn’t be interested in this kind of game anyway. The game had given some clearly adult clothing but seemed to be aimed at preteens and young teenagers. In all, I don’t strongly recommend the game, mainly because of the overtly sexual clothing one can wear. The only person I could see playing it would probably be a grown woman that likes dress up games and fashion, and even then, I would keep it away from my children’s prying eyes.


An App Review of Hospital Dash

Hospital Dash by Tapps- Top Apps and Games

Type: Business Manager, Doctor, Hospital

Basic Game Setup: You are a doctor that runs around the room moving people to different parts of the hospital.


Game Play: 3½/5 Above Average: In the game you move among the patients delivering them different things that they need or taking them to different places. The game was a bit challenging, and unlocked more material as time went on. The levels sometimes made things more difficult by adding steps and things you had to do to make it more complicated, such as pressing the heart pressure at the right time or putting band-aids on people.

Graphics: 2½/5 Below Average: I couldn’t take the graphics very seriously. The characters were cheesy looking and the graphics were too cartoon-like. It wasn’t horrible, or even that much of an eye sore; the graphics just weren’t one of its strong points.

Music and Sound Effects: 3/5 Average: There was a main song that played through the levels, and the character talked as you pressed on things and moved.

Overall: 3/5 Average: The game was fun, but I would recommend it for children more than teenagers and adults for entertainment. I would recommend it for children in interest and quality five and six to twelve and thirteen.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 0/5 None

Violence: 0/5 None

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 0/5 None

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 0/5 None

Religious Issues: 0/5 None

Magic: 0/5 None

Others: None

Overall: 0/5 All Ages Appropriate: This game is morally recommendable for all ages.


An App Review of LoveLive: School idol festival!

LoveLive: School idol festival! By KLab

Type: Music, Rhythm

Basic Game Setup and Plot: Honoka decides to start a pop idol group and has the player help her. Another girl starts her own pop group for fun. The player helps each pop group become successful and also becomes friends with them.


Game Play: 4/5 Well Done: The game is a rhythm game. It is not like some rhythm games that are impossibly hard, but it isn’t boring or too easy either. There are definitely challenges.

The player plays the songs and gets rewards. After gaining coins and points from playing songs, the player can upgrade their characters or try to get new ones. Depending on the song one plays depends on what characters a person may use, and the different characters have different abilities. After reaching achievements, the player can unlock stories, some for main game play and others as extras.

Plot: 3/5: Average: The plots are simple and cute. There are also side plots for all of the different characters, revealing personalities and preferences. Since new characters are added over time, the stories never end. There are also contest that come with their own stories that are added for limited times.

Graphics: 4/5 Well Done: One of my favorite parts of the game is the anime style graphics. The characters area cute and there is a lot of variety in their appearances, all of them overflowing with adorableness.

Music: 3½/5 Above Average: The music is pop or rock, and often has a happy or energetic feel to it. There are a total of eighteen voices that sing songs either as a group, a few at a time, or solo. Some of the songs start to sound similar after some time though.

Overall: 4/5 Well Done: In quality, this is probably the best rhythm, game that I have played. The art and music are good and the story is interesting. The game also updates regularly to add new events and characters. In quality I would recommend it to girls twelve and older.

Moral Content

Official Rating: E

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 2½/5 Some Immodest Clothing: The girls wear a lot of suggestive clothing, sometimes shorts, miniskirts, or low shirts. There are also various swimsuits. Though the lyrics are sung in Japanese, when reading what they mean in English they are a bit suggestive. The lyrics are not sexual and do not say anything crude, but they are a bit passionate.

Violence: 0/5 None

Swearing and Taking the Lord’s Name in Vain: ½/5 Slight Misuse: “Gosh” and “geez” are used throughout the series.

Religious Issues: 2½/5 Demon Fascination and References to Other Religions: One of the schools the girls go to is Catholic. At least one girl lives in a shrine, and she says that she believes that all gods are the same. Another girl uses tarot cards. Some characters can be seen wearing traditional Japanese religious outfits. One girl believes she is a fallen angel and makes references to demons and hell. She probably isn’t.

Magic: ½/5 Slight Reference: Some of the costumes are fairy themed or are of magicians. No magic is done in the game.

Others: The music is pop and rock and has drums. The game has some suggested homosexual affections among the members. Originally all speech that suggested this was removed, but as Americans have become more accepting of this they have been updated to include the homosexual comments. Such comments include, “What do I like? Looking at cute girls, I’d say!” and “A girl and a girl? I don’t mind at all.”

Overall: Unfortunately this game is not very recommendable, mainly because of the religious issues and homosexual phrases. Before some of the updates in the game, it wasn’t so bad, but as time has gone on the game is no longer very morally recommendable.


An App Review of Alpaca World HD+

Alpaca World HD+ by Ammonite Studio

Type: Animal, Simulation

Basic Game Setup: You are an alpaca farmer. The goal is to try to unlock as many alpaca fur colors as possible and buy clothes and upgrades for them.


Game Play: 3/5 Average: Alpaca World HD+ doesn’t really have a main goal to it. You can breed alpacas to find different colors of fur and level up, but there really is no set plot or ultimate goal in the game. The game seems mostly made for relaxation.

Graphics: 3½/5 Above Average: The graphic were plain 3D ones. The colors are bright and solid. Most of the art is simple looking, but not outdated and cheap. The clothing fits the alpacas nicely and usually looks natural.

Music and Sound Effects: 3½/5 Above Average: The music and sound effects are cheerful. There are only three songs, but they are all done nicely.

Overall: 3/5 Average: The game wasn’t super special or horribly done, just not unique or interesting. It is recommendable in interest for children of either gender from seven or eight years old to twelve.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 1/5 Suggestive: One of the clothing items is a bikini top. “Sexy” is used to describe clothes twice. One of the clothing items is a bikini top. One of the clothing items is a miniskirt.

Violence: 1/5 Light Violence: The alpacas can fight so that you can catch other ones. All the alpaca does is rush into the other on or send something on it. There are no signs of injury on the alpaca such as bruises or blood.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 0/5 None

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 0/5 None

Religious Issues: 1/5 Suggestive: In the description for the scarf it is mentioned they can be worn for “religious reasons. There are shoes called “Hermes Shoes,” which are in reference to a false god. The description for one clothing item says “Pearls were once thought to be the tears of the gods…”

Magic: 1/5 Light Reference: There are several “Magical” clothes for “magical” alpacas. One clothing description mentions a wizard. One alpaca attack is a meteor and another one is bullets that look like little blue balls of fire. One of the colors is called “magic mint.”

Others: There is an electric guitar. There are popular culture references in clothing, such as Star Wars helmets and lightsabers,

Overall: 1/5 Child Appropriate: Sadly even in children’s games the world feels like it has to put in its two cents. Besides from the “Sexual and Inappropriate Content” I would rate this completely appropriate, because of it though I would say ten and older.


An App Review of Plague Inc.

Plague Inc. by

Type: Disease, Simulation, World Conquering

Basic Game Setup: You are designing a disease that is supposed to evolve until everyone on earth gets sick and dies.


Game Play: 4/5 Well Done: In the game you either are a disease or have created a disease that is supposed to infect and kill everyone on earth. This is done by “evolving” your disease to adapt to all climates, spread more easily, etc. In most game versions you win by killing all of the people on earth. There are also other modes you can play that are based off of real disease or fantasy situations like zombies or monkeys taking over the world. A lot of detail was put into the game such as whether a country is poor or how the weather will affect the disease’s progress. It also describes how the disease works to a degree, making a person turning into a vampire or zombie make sense to a degree.

Graphics: 3/5 Average: Graphics are not a huge focus in the game. There is a basic map of the earth and basic pictures on upgrades, but none of them look cheesy or cheap.

Music and Sound Effects: 3/5 Average: There is music sometimes played that is has a slightly suspenseful feeling. When playing some special modes the music is changed to match the mood of the version. The range of sound effects can include people, sirens, bugs, etc.

Overall: One of the reasons this game was reviewed was because it is has around 50 million players. Quality wise it is fun and clever. For quality it is recommended most for boys that are in preteens and early teenagers.

Moral Content

Official Rating: E 10+

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 1/5 Brief Mentionings: There is a news article titled, “Cotton shortage inspires nudity boom.” One of the diseases mentioned is HIV.

Violence: 2/5 Non-Described Suggested Violence: Some news articles mention terrorism, Middle Eastern affairs, earthquakes, a man being trampled, and storms. There is a measure of how many people have died in the game. If you play the vampire or zombie mode, the apes, vampires, or zombies can attack people, bases, and countries. The vampire mode is more violent, as it talks about murders done by the vampire that the populace believe is being done by a cult.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 0/5 None

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 2½/5 Partially Disturbing and Intense Content: The game revolves around being the most horrible, deadly disease in the world and killing everyone. In the game it has the numbers of people infected, dead, and healthy. There are also news articles that describe disturbing things like trauma centers, corpses, mass graves, and a man who tried to commit suicide because he believed he was haunted. Some of the sound effects are creepy such as a child singing, a woman crying, or sirens.

Religious Issues: 2/5 Suggestive: A news article mentions aliens. One news article talks about people worshipping a fossil. One news article mentions a priest. Another one talks about a man who believes he is haunted. The game revolves around evolving your disease. One of the buy-able genes is called “Darwinist” and helps your disease and another is called “Creationist” which makes the game harder to play. When playing the vampire mode, the people believe a blood cult is killing people rather than a vampire.

Magic: 1/5 Some Reference: There are a vampire and zombie modes that can be unlocked.

Others: There is a news article titled “Pop star told to shake it off.” The TV show “The Walking Dead” is referenced. One news article mentions a “war on drugs.” One mode is based on the movie series “Planet of the Apes.”

Overall: 2/5 Child Appropriate: This game is fun, but is not recommended as it revolves around killing everyone on earth as a super disease and it is based on evolution. These two things cause me to not recommend it very much. If you did want to play it, I would suggest twelve and older for an age.

WARNING: Reading this article may give away things in the stories ranging from unimportant to plot turners.


Type: Detective, Mystery

Basic Game Setup and Plot: You are the assistant of a detective and have to help him find out who murdered a person by examining the corpse and scene. There also appears to be a plot that goes with the game play.

Note: I only played the first two mysteries of the game, as the rest cost money and I am too cheap to pay money for an app, even if it really good. Therefore if the game has different content and quality than what you read here later in the game, I apologize.


Game Play and Plot 4½/5 Very Well Done: This game was both unique and fun. Most mystery games are merely 2-D search and find games. This game is completely different. It is a 3-D game that focuses on your ability to examine a scene and corpse and be able to deduct who killed the person and have proof they did it. I found this much more fun than the simple search and find mystery games, as it felt more realistic and that there was more effort put into it.

There are signs of there being a plot, but because I did not the play too far I am not sure how good it is or what it entails.

Graphics: 4/5 Well Done: For an app these were pretty good graphics. There were 3-D graphics for crime investigation and 2-D graphics for when you talked with other people. The drawings are done in a style much like what you would see in a Nintendo game and are in good quality.

Music and Sound Effects: 3½ Above Average: The music was typical detective TV show music in a jazzy style. The sound effects were also done well.

Overall: 4/5 Well Done: I highly recommend this game quality wise. It was a lot more fun than the average mystery game. Either gender should find the game fun and I think preteens and younger teenagers would find it most entertaining.

Moral Content

Official Rating: T

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: ½/5 Slightly Suggestive: There is a low dress on a lady. A girl calls a woman a “bimbo.”

Violence: ½/5 Slightly Suggested: Violence is not actually shown, but is mentioned as the cases are murder ones.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 1/5 One of Two Light Utterances: God’s name is taken in vain twice in French.

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 1½/5 Some Slightly Disturbing Content and Blood: There is blood on some scenes from the murders. The cases revolve around murder and why and how they killed the person. Nothing rally gory or really disturbing was shown, but there are corpses on the scene and while everything is being reveled and explained it does show pictures of the events happening in a mostly non-disturbing way. In the beginning of the game someone mentions a person killing them.

Religious Issues: 0/5 None

Other: A woman says her she bought her new boyfriend a collar and she seems to treat him like a dog. He also acts like one in some ways. This could be done for humor purposes or suggestive ones.

Overall: 2/5 Child Appropriate: As far as I played, all of the content was merely suggestive except for the blood on scene. Unlike other mystery and detective games I have played, this one did not give me a weird or uncomfortable feeling as I played it. I recommend this game to children content wise nine or ten and older.


App Review of Vlogger Go Viral

Vloggers Go Viral-Clicker by Tapps- Top Apps and Games

Type: Clicker, Simulation

Basic Game Setup and Plot: You are a vlogger and make videos on different subjects. The goal is to get in first place and then start a new vlog.


Game Play: 3½/5 Above Average: You are a vlogger that wants to become famous on the internet. You make vlogs by picking a subject and let a time bar fill up. This can be filled up by waiting, clicking the screen, or paying with diamonds. After making money from vlogging you can buy different things to make your vlog videos more attractive and gain publicity. You can also reach goals and buy different characters to play as well as specific clothing or hair from characters. After you become the most famous vlogger you can delete your old game and start all over to get different rewards. While the game sometimes gets a little repetitive, it is a lot of fun.

Graphics: 3/5 Average: The graphics are in a cartoon style and do not have much detail. Most things are brightly colored and cheerful. There are also pictures of real people and things in the vlogs you make. The photos are well taken.

Music: 3/5 Average: There are two songs played depending whether you are making a vlog at the moment or not. They are both cheerful and upbeat, but nothing extraordinary.

Overall: 3½/5 Above Average: The game is best to play on long car rides (well, not when you’re driving of course) or when you are waiting for a service that usually takes some time like the dentist. The game can be enjoyed by both genders and is enjoyable for any age as long as they can understand how it works. Overall it is more fun than the average clicker game and is recommended.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: ½/5 Slightly Suggestive: Three people in pictures are hinted or shown to have no shirt in as it shows their bare shoulders, one being a woman. One of the three is a shirtless man. One character you can play has her midriff showing. Another character you can play is a Mayan character that has almost no clothes. The characters in the game are in a cartoon style and are not shown shown with bodies that are realistic.

Violence: 1/5 Slight Violence: There is a picture of an explosion and a picture of a man falling off a horse.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 1/5 Frequent Suggested Misuse: “OMG” is used in at least six comments. Several bad comments include symbols to represent swearing.

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 0/5 None

Religious Issues: 1/5 Slightly Sugegstive: “Karma” is part of one person’s username. Some of the comments toward the character are compliments that can be considered idol worship, such as “(Username) is my new religion.”

Magic: 1/5 Slight Reference: An “internet fairy” explains how the game works when you start it. Some of the characters you can play as are an alien, elf, gypsy, witch, and zombie. “Magic” is compared to science in one comment. One of the rewards is “Tech Wizard.” A poster has alien ships on it and aliens are mentioned to have visited you when you become famous. No magic is done in the game. “Zombie” is in a username

Others: Two characters you can play are boys with long hair. Beyonce is mentioned in one comment. There is a picture that has a character that is probably Slenderman. (A character from an urban legend ghost story.) One of the pictures has people at a rock concert in it. The back round music has drums. Some characters that can be unlocked are the punk and skeleton. One female character has half her head shaved. One of the things you can unlock in “studio equipment” is “Xio the Skull.”

Overall: 1/5 Almost All Ages Appropriate: The game is family friendly and is recommend it to children six or seven and older. The problem that is probably the biggest is the suggested language and some of the character selections, though a person may object to something else in the game as well such as the music with drums. Overall the game is mostly recommendable.

App Review of Hachi Hachi

Hachi Hachi by Skytree Digital Limited

Type: Music, Rhythm

Basic Game Setup and Plot: A rhythm game that has several different songs that are either earned or bought. The only goal is to unlock things and get a high score. There is no plot.


Game Play: 3/5 Average: The game is a rhythm music game. You play songs and can unlock more from buying them with real money or game currency or by using the gacha. (Gacha in Japanese is there word for a slot machine.) These songs are played and by playing them you can unlock different things. You can play against other people (real people, not computer opponents) and earn or lose points. You also get coins to buy things. You may also use coins to buy tickets for the arena. As far as I know there is no way to actually be in contact with these people you play against.

Graphics: 3½/5 Above Average: The character’s avatar is very cartoon themed. Though it is cartoon themed they did provide a nice amount of accessories that reminded me of graphics form the video game Bomberman. (Is that series still going on even?) Song cover graphics were similar to anime and manga and some were nicely drawn.

Music: 3/5 Average: The music was mainly pop, rock, and electric and electric classical. There were also some instrumental songs.  It was mostly sung in Japanese, but a few songs were sung in English. Contemporary Japanese music is often different than contemporary American music feel and singing, but some of the songs sound really similar to American music.

Overall: 3/5 Average: I have played music games before that are better in game play, graphics, and music. It wasn’t an awful game, but it was not very interesting or creative. Because of this I don’t strongly recommend it. If you do want to play it, it is suitable for either gender and is playable for children about eight or ten and older.

Moral Content

Official Rating: E

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 2/5 Suggestive: The woman in the tutorial and the women on the song covers are sometimes suggestively dressed. The clothing is about average video game suggestiveness found in a game found in E 10+ games such as being too revealing or tight, but it is not of a porn nature or extremely inappropriate.

Violence: 0/5 None

Swearing and Taking the Lord’s Name in Vain: 0/5 None

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 3/5 Several Disturbing Images: Some of the song covers have potentially scary covers, such as a creepy looking clown hanging a ballerina doll on strings. Some song covers are just weird looking such as the examples that can be found here:

Songs 48 background 2.png

Songs 18 background 1.png

Songs 21 cover

There have been a few even more disturbing ones that are now unavailable.

Religious Issues: 1/5 A Small Problem: The accessories have a devil headband. One of the face accessories and a song cover has a devilish look.

Magic: 1/5 Some References: One cover for a song has witches on it. Another has a dragon on it. There is witch hat and a jack o’ lantern head accessories. There is a vampire face accessories. No magic is done in the game.

Others: From the time of the publishing of the article no one had translated the lyrics of the songs, meaning that they could have bad lyrics. Most of the music is worldly and has drums.

Overall: 2/5 Child Appropriate: The game is technically appropriate, but it is suggestive. I do not strongly recommend it morally as there are images that make one feel uncomfortable spiritually, and as the song titles and music are not in English and have not been translated, there may be something deeper not seen that is very ungodly. Also the clothing on the woman is more revealing than you probably want your teenage son to see. If you do want to play it regardless, I believe preteens and older would be fine playing it.

App/Game Review of Crossy Road

Crossy Road by Yodo1 Games

Type: Action, Adventure (Maybe), Puzzle

Basic Game Setup and Plot: You are a person, animal, or even an inanimate object that is trying to cross several roads, fields, and train tracks without getting run over.


Game Play: 3½/5 Above Average: You can be one of many things that are trying to cross as many roads, train tracks, fields, and rivers as you can. You must do this while trying to not be hit by cars or trains and keeping up with the pace or an eagle will carry you away. The goals of the game are to unlock characters and reach as far as you can by walking before you die.

Graphics: 3½/5The graphics are good and simple. They were like giant pixel graphics. I thought the graphics were nice, but there was nothing too extraordinary. I did like them better than graphics that are attempted to be done elaborate and end up awful.

Music: 1½/5 Almost No Music: There are a lot of times when there is no music, but when there is music it’s not bad, just nothing unique. The sound affects were nice, though.

Overall: 3½/5 Above Average: The game is one of those simple, yet so much fun games like Flappy Bird. (Though I personally hate Flappy Bird for being so hard.) I think both boys and girls of almost any age would understand and enjoy it.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 0/5 None

Violence: 1½/5 A Lot of Bloodless Cartoon Violence: The creature you are controlling can get run over by a car, hit by a train, or snatched away by an eagle. You can also drown. When you die you usually are just a flat, squished person on the ground, and sometimes something extra will happen if you play a certain character. (If you play as the celebrity, photographs fly everywhere when you die.) If you play as the character Michael Boom explosions happen everywhere. If you play as a dragon you can blow fire at things and as a wizard you can zap them. There is no blood in the game.

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 0/5 None

Religious Issues: ½/5 Slightly Suggestive: Certain characters let the land look like a Halloween landscape.

Magic: 1/5 Some Reference: Some of the characters you can play are an alien called “specimen 115”, a character called “the dark lord”, a dragon, Frankenstein, a ghost, a leprechaun, a unicorn, a vampire, a witch, a wizard, and a zombie. There are also characters from other games that may or may not be associated with magic that you can play.

Others: There are also some pop culture characters like Psy, doge, and etc.

Overall: 1/5 All Ages: If you do not mind a few magic related characters and violence without blood it should be OK for children and adults to play.

App/Game Review of Moé Girl Café

Moé Girl Café by Cat Studio HK

Type: Business Manager,  Restaurant

Basic Game Setup and Plot: You are a manager of a Japanese maid café (which are cafés in Japan that are of a cute style and the workers are girls in maid costumes). It has no plot, but it is a game where you try to unlock as many things as you can such as recipes, awards, and a bigger café.

Note: The word “moé” (pronounced with a long “o” and the “é” like the “e” in anime.) is hard to translate, but in short, the Japanese see “moé” as an adjective for cute anime girls that the Japanese otaku (nerds or geeks) have romantic or sibling-like affection for. If you want a more clear idea it would be better for you to research it on wikipedia or elsewhere, because it is very hard to explain in one paragraph.


Game Play: 3½/5 Above Average: The game was fun to play. There is a lot to do in the game such as unlocking awards, trying to get people to vote for your café, and getting a five star approval from the twice a year (game time) reviewers. The way you play is by hiring different girls to serve food, cook food, or attract customers to your café. You can upgrade them and you can also upgrade your food and can buy more attractive furniture and decorations. You do not do any of the chores yourself; you only manage the café and employees.

Graphics: 3½/5 Above Average: The graphics are cute and sweet. The characters are all very “chibi,” which is the Japanese term for anime and manga characters that are short and cute. The entire game is like this in the food, decorations, and people. There are no graphics in the game that I thought were ugly or badly drawn. They were drawn better than the lazy, unimaginative way some American games draw their restaurant graphics.

Music: 3/5 Average: The music was like most games of that sort: a little catchy, repetitive, and not to dramatic or complicated.

Overall: 3½/5 Above Average: The game is fun and cute, so I think that it would be much enjoyed. I also think it is unique in being maid themed and having so many different employees in it. I think girls in their late preteens and older would understand and like it best.

Moral Content

Official Rating: E

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 2½/5 Quite Suggestive: In the game you may buy different clothes for your maid’s including some pretty provocative ones like bikinis, playboy bunny costumes, and school swimsuits. There are also other less sexy clothes like a teacher uniform and cat costumes. (The cat costume advertised is not really a two piece bikini but a one piece dress). Though I believe these clothes were put in the game for people who are attracted to certain kinds of clothes, they are not really made to be sexy. The characters are also very short and stout, even close up, so the only really sexy outfit is the bikini and maybe the bunny uniform (unless you are attracted to girls wearing certain clothes such as teacher outfits). There are also some girls that show up in the game that make announcements and tell you how too play. Though their clothes are a little revealing, they are also not given very much detail because they are just close up chibi characters. NOTE: You will notice there are some very feminine dresses of a theme called “Lolita.” This is not the American Lolita, and research proves it is merely a fashion trend that somehow picked up the name.

There is an award called “Shake hentai” that you get by irritating the maids. Though I cannot say if “shake” is being used as a Japanese word or an American one (either way I cannot make sense of it) I do know hentai means a porn game in Japanese. Nothing sexual is done in the game or when you rub their heads to irritate them, so I am personally a little confused by the title. Perhaps it is a way of calling the player a pervert.

Your café is referred to as a “harem” in the game.

Violence: 0/5 None

Swearing and Using the Lord’s Name in Vain: 1/5 One or Two Light Utterances: There is an award you can earn called “Go to hell~” because you have to irritate your employees to get it.

Emotional, Intense, and Disturbing Content: 0/5 None

Religious Issues: 1/5 Slight Contradiction: There are three awards mentioning false gods.

Magic: 1/5 Some References: There are table and chair sets that are themed “Vampire”, “Mushroom fantasy”, and “Season of witch.” There are two awards one called “Even aliens visit here” and another called “Be careful of dragons.” No magic is done in the game.

Other: None

Overall: 2½/5 Almost Child Appropriate: The worst things about this game were the language and the reference to hentai video games. It is not strongly recommended because of that, but if a person wishes to play it is suggested thirteen years and older.

(The second game is not recommended whatsoever, as their are uses of the ‘s’ word as well as backstories of characters that include sexual abuse.)
