Excllent for slightly older autistic kids

I first introduced my 6-year-old ASD daughter to this game during lockdown when I was trying to find educational apps she would engage with. The mastered the puzzles quickly and moved on to Thinkrolls Kings and Queens and Thinkrolls Space which are much more challenging. She still goes back to the first Thinkrollls game from time to time as it is quite relaxing. The music is pleasant while the sound effects and animations are satisfying in a way that makes you want to carry-on. What works well, is there are no lives to lose and no game over. If you fail to solve a screen, you simply press the reset button on the corner of the screen and that screen resets itself without you being sent back. This is great for children who struggle with resilience and confidence. You pay for the whole game up front so there are no adverts, loot boxes, extra content or premium features. The UI is simple enough for kids to work without supervision.

Is It Any Good?

With seven chapters, each introducing a different physics concept through familiar objects and including about a dozen levels, there's quite a bit in THINKROLLS to keep kids challenged. And since up to six players can have a customized profile on the device, the whole family can take on these fun and charming challenges. As they play, kids get to unlock new characters and choose which one they'd like to roll through each level, which is just another incentive to keep on working through the levels. There's no failure -- kids get as many chances as they need with no penalty or lost points (because there are no points!). Each level builds on the one before it, allowing kids time to master one concept before introducing a new challenge. The full-of-personality Thinkroll characters will appeal to kids of all ages and interests, challenging them with thought-provoking fun.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
