DOODLE FIT 2: AROUND THE WORLD is even better than its popular predecessor: Enhanced features include a serious graphics upgrade, a new sandbox mode, and community puzzles. The level creator is just flexible enough to allow kids to create anything that fits on the grid, then edit, publish, or delete with ease. Community puzzles are well-organized, and kids can now play with a countdown in time-attack mode and even learn a little geography, since levels are themed by countries displayed on a rotating globe. However, the addition of scoring and gaming networks really transform it into a product that's more suited for older kids and teens.

At first, play might appear to be completely progressive, but savvy kids likely will discover they can tap on the dots on the routes or the white arrow buttons to select any of the puzzles in a level, so they can do the hardest one first if they like. Third-party ads and in-app purchase opportunities can be distracting, though at least the full-screen ads only interrupt at transition points and are easy to dismiss. The $0.99 no-ad version is totally worth it. Doodle Fit 2 may not be the best for the youngest puzzlers out there, but its appeal has skyrocketed for the older set.

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.
