Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Pinch 2 HD is a charming puzzle game that involves getting colored orbs to a goal by combining and separating orbs into appropriate sizes and colors. The game is challenging but controls are simple. There are some privacy concerns with the use of Game Center, which is optional; the app also contains links to the publisher's website and external social networks. Although free, players will most likely want to pay the $4.99 for additional levels.
Is it any good?
PINCH 2 HD is an iPad-only puzzle game that makes great use of the touch screen and larger display. Players must get various colored orbs to a goal by sliding them around; the trick is that there are gates and pits that can only be crossed if the orb is the right size. Pinching two orbs together combines them into a larger size, and pulling one apart divides it into two smaller orbs.
Later puzzles include mixing various colors, chutes that transport orbs into different rooms, and silver orbs that cannot be combined or separated. The free version only comes with 20 puzzles, but the $4.99 cost of the additional levels is well worth it.
