A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that although LandFormer is a free app, with several levels to play that are already included, the homepage offers the option to buy extra level packs for an added dollar or two. The game itself is a puzzle game with an interesting topography theme -- no content to be concerned about.
Is it any good?
LANDFORMER is a true puzzle game, the kind where players sit and examine the puzzle and truly wrack their brains to figure out how to solve it. The board is laid out like a gridded landscape -- some squares containing tall mountains, others deep lakes, others with swamps or rolling hills -- and players need to flatten the earth. By raising low-lying areas and flattening high-ones, players must make the whole board one smooth level. But here's the trick -- players can't raise or lower on square at a time, they go up and down in groups. Figuring out the necessary pattern for each challenge can be tough, but LandFormer is a fun, intriguing, and very different kind of puzzle.
