Is It Any Good?

Levers is remarkably addicting. It's not easy to play, but it's not easy to give up either; there's clearly a way to balance all the hangers and objects to get to the right answer, and it's fun to keep trying until you get it right. Since there are no instructions (users can toggle the app's title on and off, but that's the only written content), prereaders and older kids will be equally well equipped to start experimenting with the best way to arrange the objects and reach the solution. Once you've won the game, it's also worth giving it another try; each additional object requires another round of balancing, and each intermediate step offers its own challenge that stays fresh and compelling. A few extensions and more variations would extend the shelf life even more. Though it's simple in concept and execution, it's a fun, addicting game to challenge kids and adults alike.

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.
