Is It Any Good?

Stellar graphics and clever strategy gaming make this game appealing, but the endless pushes for the user to spend real money get old quickly. The controls are as simple as the rules, but there's still enough variation between the puzzles to keep players engaged, and the challenge increases as levels progress. Because the objectives for each level sometimes conflict, kids will have to try out several strategies to get all three stars. The biggest frustration, however, is the need for hints and special powers: If the goals were attainable without them, the purchases would be optional. As it is, a kid can't know the objectives without having hints available, and hints cost money even in the paid version. If parents won't pay $10 for unlimited hints, kids are bound to get frustrated. If the paid title had fewer in-app purchases, it would be much easier to love 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.
