What you should know:
Become a master of the machine in Citiblox, an addictive puzzle app for kids and adults alike. This simple yet habit-forming strategy game lets little learners boost brainpower and sharpen logic skills as they go head-to-head with the computer to reveal adorable, animated city scenes.
The electronic brain that kids compete against in this game is deceptively clever, and can be hard to beat. Players compete to complete “boxes” that will either reveal one of nine city scenes, or will be “blocked” and grayed out by the computer. Gameplay progresses over the course of three levels, which are unlocked as kids’ logic skills sharpen. However, even staying on the same level doesn’t make this game any less compelling. Unfortunately, Citiblox doesn’t support multiplayer gameplay, so kids can’t engage in friendly competition—they’re always stuck squaring off against the computer. Still, the simple cityscapes are a cute and age-appropriate reward, and solving the puzzles is a fun solo activity.
The lite version comes with ads but—like the section that advertises additional apps by the same developer—the advertisements aren’t obtrusive, making this app perfectly safe for kids to play alone without adult supervision.
