A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids will have to problem-solve as they begin each level and figure out how to reach the goals of the game. As they play, they'll have to figure out each contraption and the physics that propel the marbles where they need to go.
Ease of Play
Perchang's controls are extremely easy: Press the red button to control red elements and the blue button to control blue elements. Tap elements to change their color. Everything's very responsive, and all menus are easy to navigate.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
Plenty of fun with very light time commitments, this puzzler has levels that only take a few seconds to complete and give a nice sense of satisfaction when earning those gold stars. Perchang's controls all are very responsive, making finesse plays possible, and the charming instrumental soundtrack adds a bit of character to the otherwise spartan experience. The minimalist grayscale color scheme sets the game apart from competitors, as do the nicely rendered 3D graphics. Some kids may find the time limits anxiety-provoking, but even if you fail a level, you can always try again, so the pressure is minimal. Parents may want to set expectations around the link to Facebook; though not in your face, it's still readily accessible. For kids who like puzzles and projectiles, Perchang is a direct hit with lots of charm.
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.
