This puzzle game is visually incredible, and its engaging puzzles make for an amusing experience. In The Birdcage 2, players will find their point of view pivoting as they turn the cage and zoom in on items. A glowing line appears when you swipe a magic wand, and keys are jiggled in a lock to open an owl's cage. Players are rewarded with objects for solving various puzzles -- arranging blocks to match a pattern shown on the outside of the owl's cage, for example, or shifting pieces of a design so that they line up. The challenges get more difficult as you advance.

As gamers play, they reveal portions of a story involving a young sorceress who has just graduated from a school of magic, which is thematically in line with the app's Harry Potter-esque feel. The plot seems a bit unrelated to the activities you participate in, though, and can be a bit confusing to follow because you'll only see a small part of it at a time. But players can scroll through sections they've already accessed to review what they've read. The individual puzzles that you need to solve aren't easy, but players can watch an ad to get a clue. While that can slow gameplay down temporarily, it's a nice option to help keep from getting stuck. But if you get into the game and want to keep playing into its highest levels, there will be a cost involved. Players can access two packs, which contain 10 levels with multiple rounds of puzzles, for free, but beyond that, they'll need to pay $1.99 per pack to continue. If you get into the The Birdcage 2, though, you'll enjoy the varied brain-teasing puzzles you'll be asked to solve.

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.
