The challenge factor on early levels is pretty low. Higher levels will require ninja-like steadiness.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Finger Balance requires a very steady hand. It's an arcade game, in which you balance a bar between your two index fingers, and try not to let the ball that's sitting on the bar roll into a wall. Oh, and did we mention that you're guiding the bar through a maze? And sometimes a maze where the walls move?

Is it any good?

FINGER BALANCE is one of those games that demonstrates the kind of insanely entertaining activities that can only happen on a touchscreen device like the iPad or iPhone. It's not just balancing a ball on a stick -- it's balancing a ball on a stick with two fingers, which means you have to keep both of your hands in time with one another constantly. And you need to maneuver that stick through a maze that may or may not include moving walls and obstacles. It's so simple, but it's crazy fun. Shaky hands need not apply.
