Auditorium: The Online Experience does exactly what a good puzzle game needs to do -- it very easily pulls players in with a concept that is graspable and seems easy. But just as players begin to get the hang of it, the difficulty level starts increasing. However, the various new obstacles and twists are introduced slowly over time so players aren't left aggravated. Rather, they grow and develop their skills in tandem with the increased level of difficulty, making for a seamless experience that creates a feeling of accomplishment rather than one of frustration. This game also scores points for the unique musical component, giving players the reward of a big orchestral sound when they complete each puzzle. Plus the flowing light visuals are awe-inspiring. The only slight reservation is that this game is built on one concept and does not expand with multiple game modes, so some players may get bored after completing numerous puzzles. But for those who like music, it is magical.

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.
