A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The main menu is very intuitive, with a help tutorial on how to play. The tutorial is also given during the first few levels. The puzzles progress in difficulty slowly at first, but then quickly become tricky -- younger players are likely to get frustrated. You can return to and replay any completed level.


If you fail a level, there is an option to pay $.99 to extend the time limit to 999 seconds for all levels. There is also a link to more games by the developer from the main menu, but the link disappears once you've clicked on it once.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Doodle Fill has 120 fun and strategic color puzzles that may be too difficult for younger kids. If you fail a level, you can pay $.99 to change increase the time limit for all levels. Kids are likely to want this option, because the game contains several very challenging puzzles after a few easier levels at the start. Younger kids without fine motor control may also find it difficult to tap the right section of the design. Users can share high scores via the Game Center social network, but participation is optional.

this game is good for 4 and over. by Chloe Jessica Tyler age ten

Is it any good?

DOODLE FILL combines the joy of coloring with engaging problem-solving tests. Each level presents a black-and-white design like a coloring book. Players tap on a coloring pencil, then on a section of the design to fill it with that color, repeating with other colors until the entire design is filled. To progress to the next level, every section of the design must be filled within the time limit, and no adjacent sections can be filled with the same color. Because there are only four colors per puzzle, you have to color strategically!

Like most puzzle games, it's a great way to pass time while challenging your spatial skills. The idea is simple, but playing is tricky, which makes this game absorbing and fun for kids and adults. Younger kids may get frustrated, so try playing together to help each other through the harder levels.
