I have happily played this game for 2 years. I've played the game for 949 days and accumulated an 808 day Current Streak. Sadly, I've had to replace my tablet with a new one. I was unable to find a way to sync my old table account to my new tablet. Sept 5th, I contacted Flow Free Support - Google v5.6 for assistance to sync my old tablet account to my new tablet. 10 DAYS LATER NO RESPONSE, and I've told them my old table is about ready to DIE. Perhaps they will see this review and contact me. In my 70's and frustrated and saddened that they are the ONLY software designer who has NOT assisted me to do this. AND I play 14 games!

Can be challenging, but also boring.

Is It Any Good?

FLOW FREE may at first glance look like a rather mindless puzzle game, but it's just the opposite. Connecting the brightly colored dots on the board without crossing the paths of other colors becomes an increasingly difficult critical-thinking challenge with each level. This game is uniquely suited to both kids and adults because the game concept is so simple, but the higher levels are so challenging. The banner ads are a distraction, but purchasing a puzzle pack allows ad-free play. Flow Free is a smart puzzle game that presents serious mental challenges in a simply fun way.

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.
