FOURSIGHT is a digital version of a classic board game that requires foresight and planning. The goal is to connect four pieces, but before a piece can be played on the board there must first be a white foundation piece placed. Also, each of the opponents has four of their own colored pieces and four of their opponent's, which means that they do not have complete control over their own color. This combination of features makes for a truly remarkable game that has more strategic depth than expected.

The appearance of the game is functional but nothing spectacular, and the instructions are a lengthy document that isn't formatted very well. Also, there is a two-player mode that is only available on the iPad, though it would have been nice to include for the iPhone and iPod touch as well. The computer opponent is quite difficult to beat, even on the easy levels, but Foursight is a challenge that fans of strategy games will love.

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.
