Not a bad match-3, but you can find free ones just as good.

Engaging for All

I found this for free because *I* (adult mama!) wanted to find something to play (I don't EVER play games- well, I'll play board games...). The WHOLE family is loving it! Me, my husband, & our two boys ages 7 &10. I'm 'cool' for just a second ;)

Is It Any Good?

No one who buys 4 ELEMENTS HD (FULL) should expect a blockbuster experience, since it's a very casual game meant for short bursts of time-killing. The levels will no doubt start to get repetitive for any player who spends more than an hour in a single sitting. It's an easy, comfortable puzzle game that delivers the kind of experience this type of game should. However, there are many games like this that cost less than this one ($5 at the time of this review), and others that are even free. There is a background story to follow, but it is nothing particularly worthwhile or memorable. Though not poor or disappointing in its presentation, you'll want to wait for a good sale to buy 4 Elements HD.

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.
