A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this app.
Kids can learn problem-solving and planning by making a series of logical decisions and analyzing part-whole relationships as they figure out how the boxes can fit together.
Ease of Play
Interaction with puzzles is easy, but levels get more and more challenging.
Products & Purchases
Puzzle solutions available for purchase with no parent gate other than iTunes password, depending on device settings.
Parents Need to Know
Is It Any Good?
The narrative, visually beautiful movie, and cinematic music add real drama to this game, effectively turning it into more of an adventure than a standard puzzle app. Though the challenge is often easy enough to be quite meditative and pure fun as you move Pi through the boxes into the portal, there are some puzzles interspersed with the easier ones that may make players give up on reaching the last level. This is where the "level solutions" in-app purchases come into play, so parents may want to set expectations before downloading and encourage planning ahead and retrying levels instead of buying solutions. If the mechanics changed even more from level to level or if the narrative was an even bigger element in the game, this app would be even more amazing.
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.
