A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Rotate & Roll wasn't created with educational intent, and we don't recommend it for learning.
Ease of Play
All you need to do, control-wise, is to slide your finger up and down in order to rotate the game board. Difficulty increases gradually as you move on in the game.
Violence & Scariness
If you bump into an enemy (in the form of a spiked ball with a face), you will simply vanish. The most common way to lose a level is to fall off into space.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Rotate & Roll is a puzzle-type arcade game that is easy to learn and difficult to master. On each level, you need to rotate the "game board" in order to make gravity shift and cause little ball characters to roll safely to an exit. It's very easy to roll off into space, though, if you don't twist and spin at the right time and speed. The challenge factor might thwart younger kids, but there's nothing content-wise that should be of concern.
Is It Any Good?
The puzzle layouts in Rotate & Roll are simple and uncomplicated, which makes them look deceptively easy. Timing and precision are key here, which makes the game quite a challenge -- but in the best kind of way. These puzzles are the type you might find yourself attempting 10 or 15 times unsuccessfully and not really caring, because you're so keen on finally finding just the right solution. You definitely need patience as you rotate the source of gravity and work your way through these fun, well-planned labyrinths, but if you can handle the trial-and-error aspect, you're in for quite a treat.
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.
