ACCM review

This review of Mr Men: Mishaps & Mayhem contains the following information:

App description

Mr Men: Mishaps and Mayhem is a collection of mini games based on the Mr Men and Little Miss characters. Each character has their own activity, where the player taps or swipes the screen to interact with the characters. For example, Mr Noisy wants to play his drums, so the player must tap on the drums as fast as they can. The game gradually increases in speed and difficulty. Parental guidance is recommended for ages 4-5 due to product placement and the difficulty level of the game.

Reviewers comments

The player gets three lives. If they fail to complete one of the mini game tasks they lose a life. When they have lost all three lives, the player goes back to the beginning. The game can become very fast paced and may become challenging for pre-schoolers to play. For each successful task completed the player wins points. When the player has a certain number of points they unlock a new character with a new activity. The visual instructions are simple and clear for young kids to understand.

The game can be connected to your device’s game centre, which shows the highest scores of other people playing the game. The game can be played without the internet. Turning off the internet on your device will prevent the high scores from displaying. The game has options of English or French.

This game is primarily for entertainment purposes; however, some players may find the game helps with coordination skills and reflexes. Additionally, the Mr Clever game asks players to spell out simple 2-4 letters words.

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.
