Ratings and Reviews
Our school utilizes the full program and the kids love it! They don't typically struggle until they reach the challenge section with Big Seed and Kick Box. I also allow students to play the apps during math centers. I know that the makers of this program would like to see kids persevere in solving a puzzle, but sometimes a little hint is needed. For the full program I have made "cheat sheets" for my students. After they have made so many attempts on a particular puzzle I will help them by telling them where one laser or one bar definitely belongs. This helps them tremendously, even when there are five more bars and lasers that still need to be placed. I would like to see this as an added feature in an update to the apps, especially Kick Box.
Best challenging free puzzle game
This is the best free puzzle game I've found! The challenges start off simple and then get increasingly difficult. By the end, one puzzle took me over four hours to solve. I was frustrated enough that I would have taken a "hint" or "free pass" if offered, but none existed; so, I persevered. It was so rewarding to eventually figure it out!
This is great for building schema in young children or adding missing pieces to older students. The other review about the "worst game ever" missed the point. This does not use judgements of right and wrong, only feedback and results. I love it.
