A Parent’s Guide to Crossy Road (App/Game)

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.
