What it is: a puzzle game requiring attention, concentration and quick reactions.

What you do with it: turn blocks of squares into 'smilies' by marking groups of blocks with corners of the same color. Avoid obstacles (like exploding bombs), collect bonuses to increase the score . The initial layout of the blocks is loosely related to 7 real buildings like the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the Empire State Building or the Eiffel Tower.

What we liked: the concept (the game requires attention, ability to predict future moves, gets more challenging as the user progresses to another level). Simple graphics and animations, easy controls. We also liked the 'prompting' feature (suggest 'next move' when you are stuck with a particular layout).

What we didn't like: please note it is not a purely educational app. Requires parental help (instructions, tips, assistance). For some children may be too challenging (which can lead to kid's frustration), there is no way to turn the time limit off (would be good as an option). Contains external links (Facebook, Twitter, high-score tables etc).
