CYBERCHASE SHAPE QUEST! feels like a real adventure and includes hours of quest-like discovery and educational challenge. With more than 80 puzzles and many levels within games, kids' attention stays focused on trying new skills and solving problems as they seek to earn the next round of stars or points and move up levels. All three games are visually bright and interesting and include adorable Cyberchase-themed characters. Instructions skillfully weave critical-thinking and shapes lessons into the basic information kids need to navigate the games.

On the (very small) downside, sometimes loading games and levels takes a while on this app. The augmented-reality game requires going to a website for printing, and its gameplay can feel awkward at first. Once kids get the hang of it, it's just as fun as the other two games, with the added novelty of the printed board. CyberChase Shape Quest! is a super fun, innovative way for kids to explore shapes, spatial relations, and problem solving within a high-quality (free!) educational app and with characters familiar to fans of the show.

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.
