However, we've seen better efforts over the past couple of years, especially in regards to the titles targeting a younger demographic. They're not going to be winning any awards but certain recent games understand their primary audience; those who were fans of the movie that only require a solid gameplay mechanic, a simple setup, and some decent technicals. A good example of this is Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs, obviously based on the film of the same name and clearly designed for kids and maybe early teenagers. It's difficult to say this production is significantly flawed in any particular way, although we do question if it's a little too simplified."
