The level to which the game was reviewed

This game was played for several hours over several days.

App description

Faces iMake is a very simple art app that allows players to use everyday objects (such as food, toys, candy and tools) to create faces. Players can choose from a range of face bases to start their project, add facial features by selecting their chosen object and clicking and dragging it to the location. Objects can be resized, rotated, duplicated, flipped and discarded. You can also use personal photos to superimpose objects over.

The app is quite intuitive and most children would be able to navigate it easily. Very simple fine motor skills are required along with some creative abilities. Children as young as 4 years old would be able to use this app. However, parental guidance is suggested up to the age of 8 due to a feature which allows you to share pictures via the device’s email.

Reviewers comments

The positive aspect of this app is that as it is a paid app, there are no ads. Some children will enjoy creating unique art by using items for facial features that are not only novel but potentially humorous as well as inventive.

Game playing behaviour which may be of concern to some parents

There is a feature that allows players to share their artwork via the device’s email account. Before this occurs, a pop up box appears and asks the player to solve a math problem. Instead of entering the answer into a blank box, the app gives you 3 possible answers which can simply be pressed. Children may select the correct answer at random and/or actually be able to solve the maths problems as some of them are not that hard (e.g.: 80 – 10). Selecting the incorrect answer also does not lock the person out – it simply allows players to reselect another maths problem. Some parents may not be comfortable with children emailing their artwork to email contacts – particularly if they have used a saved photo from their device (which may be of anyone).

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
