Metrico has a lot going for it. Strikingly simple graphics, a unique premise, and some clever -- if occasionally fiendish -- puzzles set the game apart. It's one of those games in which you often need to walk away for a moment and come back with a different approach. And when tilt controls are introduced, things start getting even more complicated. You'll need to hold your device at precise angles to solve later puzzles, all while accessing the front and back screens, left stick, and buttons. Ideally you'll still be able to see the puzzle you're working on, but there's no guarantee. It's frustrating, and not in the way that a good puzzle should be.

Although Metrico is perfectly fine for younger kids in terms of content, the graphics will have little appeal, and even the simplest puzzles may be too difficult for them to solve physically and conceptually. It's more of a cerebral game than most kids prefer. Metrico provides some compelling challenges for those who enjoy figuring things out; you just have to deal with some unwieldy controls along the way.

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.
