A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn to solve puzzles and consider part-whole relationships as they navigate through a maze of corridors. The twist? This maze is modular. Kids must try out paths on three rectangular tiles. While the way forward might at first be on a tile at left, eventually the stick person might need to move to the right. Unfortunately, the introductory text before each challenge doesn’t display correctly. Continuity 2 offers a well-constructed puzzle that challenges kids to consider part-whole relationships in a unique way.
Ease of Play
The first few levels are simple enough, but things become much more challenging as the puzzles grow in difficulty. Players will need to learn to think several moves in advance to complete some levels, and achieving par times requires some very swift and precise finger swipes.
Violence & Scariness
The game's stick man dies if he touches a spike. He is not impaled, does not bleed, and does not yell or grunt. The action simply freezes and the game resets.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Continuity 2: The Continuation is a puzzle game that involves sliding pieces of a maze around like tiles to allow a stick man to progress toward a red exit door. There is no violence in the game, but the action will reset if he comes in contact with a spiky barrier. Parents should note that while the content is innocuous and play seems simple at first, some kids will grow frustrated by the game’s difficulty, which will leave even older kids and adults stumped for long minutes in later levels.
Is It Any Good?
The sequel to an award-winning student-made iPad game, CONTINUITY 2: THE CONTINUATION combines tile puzzles with simple door-and-key mazes and platformer-style running and jumping. Players control a stick man using intuitive swipes and taps to make him move through the maze and climb stairs, making sure to search out a key to unlock the exit door and grab collectible coins along the way. However, each level is composed of tiles that, when zoomed out, can be shuffled around to create new ways through the maze. It's a satisfyingly clever concept that’s easy to grasp but leads to some devilishly challenging navigational conundrums. Great fun for adults and kids alike, though both will need to show patience and perseverance to achieve success.
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.
