ACCM review

This review of Ninja Ranger- 100% Free HD action multiplayer arcade game contains the following information:

The level to which the game was reviewed

The reviewer played this game for several hours.

App description

Players must assist a ninja running across roof tops by jumping various obstacles. This is achieved by simply tapping anywhere on the screen. Tapping and holding executes a longer and higher jump. Therefore simple gross motor and reaction time skills are required to play.

The total score on this game consists of the overall distance traveled and how many lightening orbs are collected in any single run. There is a multiplayer option also, but the reviewer had technical issues and was not allowed access. There is no in-app purchasing in this game, however, there are many pop-up ads – many of which include ads for gambling apps containing slot machines. Therefore, parental guidance is recommended for children under 13.

Reviewers comments

This is a very simple and one dimensional game with no apparent story line or ultimate goal – other than running as far as you can without falling off the roof tops. Most children would be able to master this game within minutes.

In App purchasing

Online information

There is no gambling featured in the game itself, but there are many gambling related pop-up ads.

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.
