Is It Any Good?

The makers of this puzzler said they wanted to make a game you can "zone out" to, and while they've succeeded, it's not necessarily a good thing. True, the app boasts more than 15,000 puzzles and these are fun at first. But as the game progresses, you find yourself wishing for more variation, (aside from adding more rings and dots that is.) Ultimately, the puzzles are all alike, and along about the twentieth puzzle, solving them becomes monotonous. You might even find yourself paying the $1.99 fee or watching ads just to skip them. If you do choose to slog through the thousands of too-similar puzzles, you'll want to turn off the repetitive soundtrack or risk being hypnotized by it. In the end, despite its boast of near-endless puzzles, rvlvr. doesn't do enough to challenge your brain cells and is more likely to work as a digital sleep aid.

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.
