Bermuda Triangle is a good idea with middling execution. The basic match-three concept is solid. Popping pods onto a grid that grows from the top rather than the bottom is a modest but fun innovation, and the environmental theme, though mostly window-dressing, is pleasant. Plus, the power-ups, though neither diverse nor great in number, are useful and satisfying.

If only the controls didn’t put a damper on things. Firing pods into the ocean is simple enough. You can use the stylus to tap where you want them to land or select a spot with the d-pad. Both work, but the stylus is quicker and more efficient. Unfortunately, using the stylus makes selecting support items via the shoulder buttons tricky. It’s even harder to deploy them, which requires a tap of the X-button. Alternatively, you can call up a power-up menu at the bottom of the screen, but that takes more time and causes the player to lose track of what’s going on above. These aren’t deal-breaking issues, but they make it take a lot longer than it should to become comfortable playing.

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.
