Become the best figure ice skater
So here we are reviewing Ice Skating Ballerina - Dress up, Makeup & Dance. As you can gather from its name, it's all about a girl that wants to be a famous figure ice skater. But as you've probably also gathered, this iPhone app won't tell you about all the hard work necessary to achieve such a goal. Instead, it's yet another stupefying game for girls that are more concerned about their image and physical aspect than becoming a world champion in any sporting discipline.
A path to stardom... and beauty
Well, forgetting about personal judgments, let's get down to the game. We're talking about another life simulator or whoever you want to call it, in which you'll start off from scratch as a loser and climb to the top of the world to become the best. In this case, you're a girl that wants to be a figure skater and she's going to be trained by an Olympic champion. Sounds great, doesn't it?
That's where your path towards famous will start, having to learn how to put the right makeup and clothes on your character. Now and again, you'll have to pretend to go to a practice or dance on your skates, but the important thing is spending time trying on outfits and cosmetics. Not for nothing, the game's in-app purchases are all focused on this aspect.
Clothes, nails, hairstyles... the important things in life.
Just like in the APK version for Android, you'll be able to access the full version of Ice Skating Ballerina by making in-app purchases. In other words, you'll be able to expand your wardrobe.
These are some of the main features and functions you'll find in this game:
- Train with an Olympic coach.
- Choose your clothes well for when you go out onto to the ring.
- Draw up your skating routine.
- Transform your style.
- Get your nails and hair done.
- Work out in the gym.
- Try to appear on the front page of magazines.
- Climb to the top of the world ranking.
- Carry out all sorts of skating stunts: loops, triple jumps, and others.
- Recover from possible injuries.
- Relax in the spa.
In the game, you'll also be able to do some skating and practicing, but without going over the top. However, it's a dangerous game: from young ages we're teaching kids that the important thing in life is their appearance and beauty, spending money on eye-catching items and that girls have to go to the gym to have perfect bodies because if you're fat and plump you're not as good as the rest of people. So be careful what you download for your kids to play.
