FINGER PHYSICS is an incredibly well made game app. Whether you're holding your breath, carefully stacking different shaped blocks, or knocking obstacles out of the way to guide a big block down to the screen's bottom, you're both exercising your knowledge of the laws of physics and having a heck of a lot of fun at the same time. New puzzles and levels are available to download in the future, giving Finger Physics the chance to be a very long-lived app on your iPhone.

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.
