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.

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.
