Colorforms Revolution encourages kids to explore shapes, colors, and art through creative play and puzzle solving. With four modes and an art gallery, kids can practice identifying shapes, sizes, and colors and see how each shape can make a picture, learning part-whole relationships.
The game has four modes. Tap Create and a blank board appears; kids choose the shapes, stickers, and colors they want to use and swipe, rotate, and shrink or enlarge pieces to make a picture. In Play Sets mode, kids tap one of eight themed play sets to decorate. Puzzle Boards are puzzles in which kids fit pieces. Go Wild is an animated visual extravaganza of shapes bouncing around as kids tap them.
Colorforms Revolution can help kids practice critical-thinking skills. Matching and sizing each shape in the puzzles can be challenging, and puzzles can be set to Easy or Hard for kids of varying ages and patience levels. The Go Wild mode may be too chaotic for most kids to learn much while playing it. Still, overall, this is a fun way for kids to express creativity while developing the concept of how shapes interact to form objects.
