REFRACTION is likely to be a favorite of players who get the concept of this puzzle right away. It's is a bright game for kids with good logic and spatial skills. It would be nice to see a tutorial built into the menu options, which would make this worthwhile and challenging game accessible to more players.

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.
