BLOW UP is strategic, challenging, and engaging. While it lacks some of the silly humor of Angry Birds, it makes up for it with more control over the strategy. You aren't guessing at trajectories here. Even if you guess where to place the bombs and fail, you are returned to the structure with the bombs in the same location. This allows you to move them around, test theories, and experiment. Precise bomb placement occasionally takes more than one try as they don't always snap into place as you would like, but even younger kids will be able to drag a bomb and place it on the building. Blow Up has 90 levels and three difficulty settings.

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.
