Mia has to avoid hitting trees and cliffs as well as the attacks of the dragon. The story involves an evil queen who steals unicorn tears to keep herself young and Mia's quest to defeat her.
On each level, Mia faces obstacles and challenges, from trees and cliffs to archers shooting at her atop a dragon. If her life power reaches zero, she falls to the ground, losing that level, but each level can be replayed. In a few instances, Mia is tied up with rope but can break free with some tapping help.

The evil queen wants to capture the unicorns to use their horn dust and tears to keep her young and powerful, but the people of Centopia love the unicorns.
Mia sets out to defeat the queen, collecting unicorn dust and tears, avoiding obstacles, and collecting pieces of the Trumptus that Mia will blow at Queen Panthea at the end of the game to defeat her. Gameplay includes 10 levels that get increasingly challenging and ends with a confrontation with Queen Panthea wherein Mia defeats her if she's collected enough pieces of the Trumptus.
Kids need to understand the mission to play well, which may be tricky for younger players to grasp. They can still play, of course, but may miss the point.
Collecting the dust, tears, and parts while avoiding the obstacles requires precise eye-hand coordination, but, since each level is replayable, kids can improve each time they play. The story line is exciting and engaging for girls without being sticky-sweet or condescending. The fact that Mia is a girl isn't even a factor, which is refreshing and important.
The length of play, number of levels, and difficulty are just right to challenge and excite little and big kids. Families can talk about gameplay.
For kids not familiar with adventure quests, explain that they may want to replay some levels to collect the Trumptus pieces they'll need to complete the game.
