What parents need to know

Ease of play

The controls are easy and the rules are very simple to learn. Playing may be a challenge, though, simply because you'll be using your mind in ways you're not used to.

Privacy & safety

Minor privacy concerns. Players can opt in to Apple’s Game Center to track scores and achievements, and for some games, challenge friends. With Game Center, players can send and receive friend requests using an email address or Game Center nickname, revealing the first and last name associated with each party’s Apple ID and, in the case of email requests, the sender’s email address.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Reflekt is a puzzle game that requires you to shift colored symbols around on the top half of the screen in order to match them up to their reflections on the bottom half. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.

QUALITY
 

REFLEKT is a very different kind of matching puzzle. You don't need to link similar symbols or colors; the pieces you are matching won't even be adjacent to one another. Any piece you move needs to correspond to a similar piece on the opposite side of the board. The two halves of the screen are mirror images of each other -- or, at least, you need to make them mirror each other. The concept is simple to learn, but playing this intriguing new kind of puzzle forces you to work your brain in ways that might not be second nature. It's a fun, fresh kind of mental exercise.
