Capturing a child’s attention and keeping it is not an easy thing to do, but the iPad app Merry Cubes HD (by Igromatic) was able to capture mine — and I’m a stressed out older guy, but a big kid a heart. This kids’ 3D puzzle application was made with young children in mind (2-7), and being colorful and lighthearted is perhaps why I was able to be enticed away into the puzzle action. The puzzle pieces are very happy pieces of fruit that are presented in a 3D cube, in which you spin the puzzle parts to find the correct piece of fruit to complete a whole picture. Spinning the pieces can be from side to side, up and down, and so on, and once you get all the correct parts for one whole fruit picture, you are rewarded with an awesome and festive animation, specific to that fruit (be it a dancing maraca-wielding lemon or another happy fruit dance). The animations are a cool reward to the eyes and will encourage the puzzler to continue on to get the next fruity animation display.
Merry Cubes HD has 2 difficulty levels: Easy, where the puzzles are made up of 4 pieces, and Hard, with each puzzle having 9 cubes to correctly match. The navigation is very simple with only a home button, a puzzle selection and a question mark to show you how to play (which is brilliant, as it consists of only 3 pictures). My only complaint, and it is not really a complaint, but more of a want — is more puzzle content. Merry Cubes HD has room to grow and for me is a really fun kids’ puzzle application that had no glitches, worked smoothly, but may be one that is completed quickly by older kids; hence, the need for more content. Additional content could include variations of the puzzles that could be built into a matching game, look and find, etc. making this app a 5 CrazyMikesapps head-rating contender.
