A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn to solve puzzles. They'll need to use logic and planning as they mentally represent a path forward and merge two different perspectives of a 3D drawing.
Ease of Play
It's not always clear how to solve the puzzles, and there's no internal help function.

Is It Any Good?
These 3D, multi-perspective puzzles offer some interesting challenges but may be too confusing for the casual puzzler. Flipping back and forth between two different perspectives is a neat and unique feature to the Takoway puzzles. And it's certainly a mind bender to merge the two perspectives together towards a target destination. However, there's little in-app support to help kids learn what they need to do to get started or guide them when they get stuck. And, the graphic-based story line is obscure and difficult to follow. This lack of clarity in game play and narrative can make Takoway difficult to follow and may turn some kids off. On the other hand, dedicated or experienced puzzlers may appreciate the mystery and the challenge.
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.
