Boy Brains, Unite! Worth every penny

This app captivates all 3 of my sons. The educational value is off the charts. If your kids like Legos, engineering, problem solving, and strategy, they will not tire of this game. Yes, levels can be very challenging even for an adult, but you don't have to complete a level to try another one, you get endless attempts, and there are even some hints. My boys think they are playing a game. I know they are learning physics and engineering (law of gravity holds, hence the name). I rated this Iffy because it honestly depends on the intellectual level of your children, however, I would not underestimate any child. My boys are bright, but NOT in a gifted and talented program at school. If your kids like Angry Birds - let them try this. You'll be amazed.

ISAAC NEWTON'S GRAVITY HD is an absolutely beautiful physics puzzle game with some very challenging braintwisters. As a trial version, this seven-level package offers a great representation of what you get for the full price. It's a bit disappointing that Namco didn't label the iOS app as a "Lite" version, but at least you can still get free access to the Level Editor, which is the app's highlight. You can build some pretty amazing Rube Goldberg-type mazes complete with buttons and gears, which can be loads of fun even if the pre-existing puzzles are too tough.
