Fans of Bejeweled-style puzzle games will feel right at home with Ruby Blast Adventures. Adventure mode gives players a sense of progress as they unlock new worlds to explore (including Egypt, Easter Island, and Atlantis), and each level has its own unique challenges: some levels, for example, restrict the types of power-ups that can be used, while others add obstacles like lava rocks. The game is cleverly designed to entice players to spend real money in the heat of the moment to extend play-time and use power-ups to escape sticky situations. In some cases it's possible to become completely stuck unless players buy their way out by spending premium currency on the "drill" power-up. Players are also constantly being prompted to send messages to friends and share updates on their news feed. The game would be more of a "blast" without these manipulative features.

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.
