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.

A Lot or a Little?
The parents' guide to what's in this app.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Woozzle is a colorful puzzle game about getting the right marbles into the right places. Its controls are easy to learn but the puzzles get increasingly difficult, and younger kids may have difficulty with the harder levels. The app includes links to post on Facebook and Twitter, or share high scores via the Game Center, but these are optional and require a login.

What’s It About?
In WOOZZLE, kids rotate containers (with a finger tap) so that an empty spot in a container is available for a marble to roll into (a swipe gets a marble moving). Once you get four marbles in a container, they all disappear. It starts simply, but as new objectives are added, the fun and challenge increase. Kids then have to get the right color marble into the right container, and then the paths get trickier with obstacles, and colors get mixed. Mastering a level unlocks the next more-challenging level. The app also includes adaptations for color-blind players.
Is It Any Good?
WOOZZLE is a fantastic puzzle game that will have you going around in circles. The object of the game is to fill round containers with the right color marbles. Tap the containers to rotate them, and swipe to launch a marble out of a container down a path. Match four marbles in the container, and that clears the container of marbles (and marks it completed). Complete all the containers to finish the level. It's a simple concept, but the puzzles are ingeniously designed -- there are one-way paths, color mixers, color filters, teleporters, and other tricky devices. Some levels even have paths obscured by leaves and branches so you have to guess at the doors and paths.
The graphics and sounds are well done and give the impression of glass marbles rolling through wooden tubes (though the wood-grain effect is a little overused in the menus). With 60 levels of increasing difficulty, Woozzle is an excellent game for puzzle-lovers who want a challenge.
