Puzzle Fuzzle asks players to take the pieces of two pre-existing pictures and combine them in new ways to create a target picture. Level 5, for example, asks the player to combine an octopus and a pendant flag to make an ice cream cone.
There are over 100 levels, each of which earns the player a crown when completed successfully. There are no time limits, so the player doesn’t have to rush. A meter also shows how close—or far—the player is from the correct answer.
Puzzle Fuzzle has ads and contains in-app purchases. The ESRB rated it E for Everyone and LW4K stands by this rating.
Puzzle Fuzzle helps kids practice and improve the following skills:
Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.
In this game, a player has to be flexible. If they do not try new things with old objects, they will be unable to create the requested image. For example, if the player looks at a flag and sees only a flag, and not the individual parts of the flag—and the new ways those parts can be used—then they will not be able to beat the levels.
Developing and retaining information in our minds while working.
The player also has to use their planning skills. Problem solving and thinking about the future are both necessary to beat any given level. If the player can’t imagine what the finished image will look like (thinking about the future) and then try out different options (either mentally or through actually moving the pieces), he or she will be unable to take the provided pictures and combine them to make the correct new picture.
