Great free but short puzzle game dangles more paid content.

If you overlook the sneaky pricing on GLASS TOWER 2, it's a really great puzzle app. You are presented with stacks of differently-shaped glass blocks, and you must eliminate all the blue blocks (by tapping and shattering them) without letting any of the red blocks fall and break. It's an incredibly simple concept, but it's simplicity makes it addictive (which makes you all the more eager to buy the additional levels). What's really neat is your ability to stabilize shaky towers by literally tilting your mobile device and rebalancing teetering blocks. There are also a couple of helpful power-ups, like a freeze spell that pauses falling blocks in mid-air.

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.
