Was it worth 2.99? Maybe. Would I play it again? Probably not.

“Kids” by Michael Frei is an absolutely brilliant piece of art, odd and insightful as it is. However, I do wish it had been kept it as an installation and short film. It’s harder to sit down and enjoy it on a phone, because there are so many distractions. Personally, I would rather go to a gallery to take it all in, where I can think about the piece in a intentional atmosphere. Experiencing this through an app makes me feel like I’ve squandered Michael Frei’s creativity by half-heartedly interpreting it through a 5-inch screen. Nonetheless, I will say that Frei’s decision to turn his piece into an app is respectfully avant-garde.

Overall, Kids by Michael Frei was very interesting as an app, but frustrating to take in. The piece itself was stellar. If I could go back in time, I would have set my phone on airplane mode and made sure there were no interruptions.

Cause+Effect the Cartoon Version

Kids is a rather Strange and Yet Strangely Addicting, Cause & Effect, Group Dynamic...The point of the Game is to determine the Cause that creates the sought after Effect...

For Example, If You run to the Right, Everyone Runs Left, and if You run to the Left Everyone Runs to the Right...So, what is the point? Perhaps it is to make one man Jump, that then causes all the Men to Jump? Perhaps, it is to run to the Top instead of Right or Left? ...Meh!, Who knows, certainly NOT Your cartoon self...

You, just have to figure it out for Yourself..
......and that’s always part of the fun of a puzzle, Right?...Figuring it out for Yourself..

.....Good Luck!...I Enjoyed the 1st run through, it was sort of calming, But I do not see myself playing this game paid $2.99 for the privilege, Worth it?..
...*shrugs*...Some will say, “Yes!”..and Some will say, “No”...but then, that’s so much like “Kids”...

Cool gogo ,

Just stop

Everyone stop saying that this game was “too short” and not worth its price. i can agree with you that it’s not worth $3 but it literally says that the game is 15-30 minutes long. If you didn’t like the game because of how short it was you should have read the description first. other than that it was an alright game. i see where the creators were doing with this has potential and very unique. hopefully the creators update the game with a lot more things to do or make a kids 2.
