Crush 3D is clever and fun, but it may well break your brain. Imagining what an environment will look like transformed from three dimensions to two -- or back again -- is harder than you make think. Thank goodness the game’s developer, Zoe Mode, is forgiving in the game's design. The puzzles are challenging, but there are plenty of save points. And crushing never has fatal results -- though you can accidentally jump off ledges if you aren’t careful. It's also a case of a game in which the 3DS’s stereoscopic display is a true benefit.

It could be a little more robust -- a game that costs $30 should last longer than five or six hours -- but there's little denying its cleverness and innovation. It's worth it for puzzle fans looking for something different.

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.
