A Parent’s Guide to Pocket Tower (App/Game)

Pocket Tower: build and manage by Overmobile

Type: Business

Basic Idea: The player must build a tower with various stores and fulfill the need of the employees.

Quality

Game Play: 3/5 The game is played exactly the way the more popular game Tiny Tower is played. The only difference is that the player has a profile and can unlock doors to win in game prizes, but other than that it is exactly the same.

Graphics: 2½/5 Below Average: Unlike Tiny Tower, though, the game has a wacky, cartoon art style. While some may like it, I personally prefer the cute pixel art of Tiny Tower.

Music: 3/5 Average: The music is upbeat music typical of cartoon games, especially on the Wii. Sound affects are simple and nice on the ears.

Overall: 3/5 Average: The game is basically an art cringe version of Tiny Tower. It is nearly identical, and I do not know why someone would play it unless they could not play Tiny Tower or were trying to master every tower building game.

Moral Content

Sexual and Inappropriate Content: 1/5 Suggestive: The opening shows women with low shirts showing cleavage.

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: Characters dream jobs including working in pubs and bars, which can be built.

Overall: ½/5 All Ages Appropriate: Most parentw
