While CIVIBALLS HD is certainly a derivative title, that doesn't stop it from being a fun one. Beyond cutting chains to make colored balls drop into their matching jars, the game regularly introduces new elements to the puzzles, such as cannons, catapults, and arrows to help you launch balls across the screen. It's a game of trial and error, but one that's not brutally difficult. Strategic thinking is rewarded, while random slashing of chains will end the level quickly.

Charging to skip levels is a bit opportunistic, given how many other games allow players to do this for free, but it's something most players won't need -- and given the game's low price, it's not a particular burden to those who do choose to buy the shortcut.

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.
