A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Though not created with educational intent, the puzzles do require problem-solving skills and perseverance. Kids will also have to think creatively to find solutions.
Ease of Play
Though this has simple point-and-click controls, goals aren't clear, and degrees or kinds of tapping can matter for certain puzzles.
Violence & Scariness
Though there's no blood or gore, it does have some eerie imagery that may upset young children.

Is It Any Good?
As smart as it is artsy, this clever and challenging puzzle-based adventure game is stunning and fun, though the goals and solutions might be too hard to uncover for some kids. Like interacting with a rich, detailed painting, this has you poking and prodding your way around, trying to figure out what's going on and why you didn't just stay home with your dog. Though it's often fun, it doesn't explain itself well and can be tough and a bit counterintuitive. There are also times when the touchscreen isn't as responsive as you might like. Though hints are available, you have to solve a simple puzzle to get to them, and they're not always totally clear. On the whole, though, Samorost 3 is unique, transporting, and full of unexpected solutions, which sets this puzzler apart from the pack.
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.
