"Puzzle Fun From McDonald's"

Reviewed by / Apr 29, 2015

A puzzle game with a happy meal tie-in.


McPlay is a puzzle game for kids that you use in conjunction with a happy meal toy. The idea is to use your mobile device to unlock new games and activities. Although this can arguably be called more of a marketing gimmick than a quality puzzle game, it should mildly entertain the little ones.


Using a happy meal toy as an aspect of the game is clever, if nothing else. There's a library where kids can purchase e-books. Not having any in-app advertising or in-game purchases is a fresh change from the norm.


The scanning of the toy doesn't always work as advertised. It would be nice if there was more than just two games given per toy. Getting kids and parents back to buy more happy meals seems a pretty obvious theme of the game. It also crashed once and had to be reloaded.

    I have latest version of app and Android 5.0 on a Note 4. Looks like I can use the other features of the App but not scan in the toys. I just press repeatedly on the toy and nothing happens.
