For kids only...but do you want your kids playing games on a phone? Very tedious seems its style over substance with the wood theme. Classic Tetris is timeless this isnt.

Is It Any Good?

The concept behind this puzzle game is similar to Tetris, but the gameplay isn't nearly as engaging or addictive as that classic, and you'll probably move on quickly. Instead of flipping and turning puzzle pieces that are falling from the top of the screen in Woody Puzzle, players pull stationery pieces onto a board to form vertical or horizontal lines. The game doesn't offer a lot of bells and whistles; gamers repeatedly try to figure out the fastest way to fill a line with blocks to earn points. The more you play, the more you realize which moves may isolate areas and make it harder to complete rows until you get a single block or other specific formation.

Unfortunately, the ads that periodically pop up appear way too frequently -- even when you're just trying to return to the home page -- to not feel intrusive. Plus, the game's basic structure isn't ideal. Players are given a choice of three block formations at a time, and they can only only make a certain number of moves before the game will end. You aren't told how many total moves you have when you start playing, so you never know how many are left -- which can make coming up with the strongest strategy hard. Aside from that, the experience that the app offers is fairly repetitive; choose a block formation, drag it onto the board, and repeat. After a very short amount of time, playing Woody Puzzle can start to feel pretty monotonous.

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.
