FLOE - A LITTLE BEAR NEEDS YOUR HELP is a puzzle game in which you help a little polar bear cross ice floes to find her mama. Each floe has a series of blocks, some that slide around and some that don't. By maneuvering Floe around the empty spaces and then tilting the iPhone, you can clear a path across the floe. The puzzles are delightfully tricky, and get progressively harder. You can win stars for solving the puzzle in the required number of slides, but you only need to get Floe across the ice to unlock the next level.

Floe is nicely designed, with sharp graphics and cute cut-scenes; however, due to the difficulty it may not be great for younger kids. For older kids and adults, it will present a nice challenge.

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.
