BLUSTER! includes many levels of play to match kids' current skills. Level 2 includes rhyming words, prefixes, and synonyms. Level 3 includes prefixes and suffixes, word roots, and homophones. Level 4 includes rhyming words, prefixes and suffixes, and adjectives. Oddly, there's no Level 1. In solo mode, kids only make word matches. In the competitive mode, bad weather comes through to slow players down, which is frustrating for the affected player but exhilarating for the other player. Getting the words to drag properly or scrolling through the list gets a bit tricky when kids are going for speed. In the team and competitive modes, the iPad screen works beautifully as a table-top game.

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.
