Not good

:
The pieces aren't standard shapes so it's impossible for young players to learn. Music is annoying. Pieces are difficult to grab and it's hard to drop them in the right spot. Should've seen all the glowing reviews were right after release and look like they were written by the developer. Oh well -- that was a couple of bucks down the drain. Immediate delete

Don't waste your money too!

0/5 stars

Prime for deletion

:
No instructional content. Difficult for young kids to move players accurately. A real let down. Save yourself the wasted $.

0/5 stars

Don't waste your money

:
Pieces were all alike, couldn't tell which pieces were which. Horrible prgramming, was only able to play the game once and was never able to open the application after that. Waste of money.
