Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Whac a Mole adapts the classic arcade game for the tablet, adding impressive graphics and a story line. The whole premise is violent — whacking moles on the head to kill them so they don’t damage the farmer’s crops — but it’s all cartoon-like. Kids also can blow up the moles using the firecracker mallet, and, in one challenge, the objective is to “beat the boss,” which means they have to whack the boss mole repeatedly until he collapses. Although it’s playable without in-app purchases, the challenge makes earning enough stars to unlock other worlds nearly impossible without those in-app purchases.

Whac a Mole is a Arcade Games app that is designed for those 10.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of  out of 5.

Whac a Mole is available for $.99 (with in-app purchases) On The Following Devices:

Our Thoughts on the Level of Engagement:

Our star rating assesses the media’s overall quality.

The Support Level for Whac a Mole is about a out of 5.

The white mole leads kids through 3-D worlds where they have to whack the moles before they get away. Kids pass a level by completing it before too many moles get away, earning coins and stars based on performance. They can use the coins to buy special mallets, such as a firecracker mallet or a time-slowing mallet, to help defeat the moles. They’ll earn one, two, or three stars for each level but must earn a total of at least 40 to unlock the other worlds: the jungle and Wild West. Kids can replay levels.
