What’s It About?
The first puzzle on KLOCKI begins with two simple tiles and two straight lines. Players tap on the tiles to switch their positions, and the lines lock in place to create one longer line. The next puzzle is three tiles and three lines, and so on. In later puzzles, tiles include curved lines or black shading that must be moved to expose dots instead of lines that increase the complexity of the puzzles.
Is It Any Good?
This puzzle app is brain exercise in a simple, yet challenging, form. Klocki's minimalist visual style leaves the player's eyes and mind open to focus on solving the puzzles, which definitely become more difficult as the levels progress, especially when the 3D shapes come into play. For players looking for stats, clues, or timers, klocki may seem like it's missing all those important extras. But for anyone out for a visually calming, pure brain workout, this is a pretty, fun puzzle app. It's especially good for kids who like puzzles but don't want the pressure of time limits or points.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about how the experience of playing klocki is different from playing other mind-bender apps that include timers and points. Is it easier to solve the puzzle when you're not pressured by time? Are you more or less motivated by the presence or absence of points?
Ask your kid how skills practiced on this puzzle app might be used in real life. How do visual and spatial skills translate into real-world applications?
As the puzzles become more difficult, ask your kid: What characteristics of this puzzle made it more difficult to solve than the last one?

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.
