What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Frozen Free Fall is a match-3 puzzle game similar to Candy Crush Saga, except that it's totally Frozen-themed. You have a limited number of lives, and once they're used, you must purchase additional lives or wait for them to regenerate. You also can buy power-ups to help complete levels. Purchases start at $0.99 and go up. When you lose a level, you're immediately prompted to use a power-up to continue the game. You won't generate many power-ups on your own, so clicking on that generally leads to a prompt to purchase more. What we're saying is, there's a lot of opportunity for in-app purchases here. But the game itself is classic match-3 fun, so play as you will. Read the developer's privacy policy for details on how your (or your kids') information is collected, used, and shared and any choices you may have in the matter, and note that privacy policies and terms of service frequently change.

What's it about?

FROZEN FREE FALL asks players to match three or more ice crystals of the same type to remove them from the board. Matching more than three creates special crystals that can be used to remove larger areas of the board. To win, you'll have to meet specific goals, such as removing a certain number of crystals, hitting a score, or getting special items to drop to the bottom of the board. Some levels have more than one goal. There are special power-ups that match the "helper" for each level. You can work with Frozen favorites Elsa, Anna, Kristoff, Olaf, Hans, Sven, and Pabbie.

Is it any good?

If you enjoy match-3 games, and especially if you're also a fan of the movie FrozenFrozen Free Fall may be just your cup of tea. The graphics are pretty, and it's fun to pair up with your favorite characters to win a level. However, the pressure to buy is high for a game that employs characters from a family-friendly movie geared at younger children. Higher levels require a lot of patience (or a lot of cash!) to complete. If you can get past that, however, it's entertaining, and there's enough variety in the puzzles to keep things interesting -- you'll get hooked in no time. 

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about merchandising and characters. Is this game more fun because it has Anna and Elsa? What do they add to the experience? 

  • Families also can talk about patience when it comes to apps that contain in-app purchases. Is buying always satisfying, or does it feel better to earn a power-up or an extra life?
