Mini Militia Army War is a quality app that seems to work seamlessly, allowing users to move forward, backward and more as they try to destroy opponents and avoid being killed. The graphics, while quite violent, are not particularly realistic, so most young users are not likely to be caught up in problems of distinguishing fact from fiction. It is somewhat difficult (at least it was for me) to use the on-screen joystick that controls the character’s movements-but I’m admittedly not very experienced with this type of game. The game would benefit from an explanation for parents detailing the advantages of play as well as the policy on in-app purchases.
This app is not intended to be educational.
Mini Militia Army War is relatively simplistic as such games go, with a rather one-dimensional storyline for the main character. Level one consists of a forward-backward city street with opponents that come across the screen trying to shoot the main character. The main character can shoot them, lob a grenade, or jump over them. There are a few obstacles that must be jumped to move past them, and the character can land (or hide) on a few rooftops or alcoves above street level. The developers note that there are 12 levels with increasingly difficult challenges better weapons, including automatic rifles, helicopters, and so forth. These are available in exchange for earned coins in the game or through in-app purchases. Players can also purchase (with real money) an ads-free play experience. The game does connect to social media and the Game Center for competitive play.
This game is free on the App Store, and can be played again and again at least at lower levels by watching advertisements to gain extra lives.
This app has numerous in-app purchases and a lot of outside advertisements. There are unprotected links to social media and other websites. The premise of the game is quite violent, and many parents may not believe it is suitable for younger children.
