Colorful, geometric animal-esque figures build with virtual building blocks to reach the goal and move to the next level of the game. The beautifully simple, clean graphics will catch your eye, but the gameplay will keep you and your child playing this one together for a long time. Each level introduces new challenges--a bouncing spot on the floor, blocks that float, a thunderstorm with gusting winds. If you are connected online while playing, you might see a new animal character arrive on your screen to help--another player who could be from anywhere in the world. You each have only a limited vocabulary (about 9 words) to speak to each other (Hello, Help, Yay…) as you collaborate together to solve the puzzles (if you want to play alone, simply turn off the wireless on your device.  Be forewarned that a few of the puzzles cannot be solved by one player alone!). This game is equally challenging and engaging for adults and kids and is safe for all audiences.  If you and your child enjoyed Monument Valley, this one may also be popular in your home (though it does sometimes require physical dexterity as you balance one block on top of another.) Truly a gem!  Note: As of early 2016, this app is now available to play on PlayStation 4, PS Vita, Wii U, PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android.
