App description

Perfect Fit – Totemland is a geometric puzzle game where players have to place puzzle pieces on the board in the correct order to make a perfect fit.  If the pieces don’t fit the trolls run away and the player has the option of replaying the puzzle. The boards increase in difficulty as the player progresses through to higher levels

Reviewers comments

Perfect Fit – Totemland would be an excellent game for teaching children spatial awareness and problem solving skills. The main problem with this app is the high level of adverts that occur during game play. Banner adverts are always on and there are full-page ads after each level is finished. These can be removed by a one-off app purchase of $2.99 and this would be worth paying for. The other problem is connectivity to the Internet by sharing through Facebook and Twitter, which can’t be switched off. ACCM recommends therefore parental guidance for 13 – 15 year olds or offline play only.

In App purchasing

There is only one in-app purchase and this is to pay $2.99 to turn off the adverts.

Online information

None required to play the game but connectivity to social media is available.

Gambling

At time of review, the reviewer found no simulated gambling content.  If you discover simulated gambling content in this app, please contact us with the details so we can update our review.

Advertising and product placement

There is a lot of advertising during this game with banner ads constant throughout play and full-page ads appearing at the end of each level. Some of these ads are inappropriate for children such as:

  • Ads for health related products
  • Ads for games such as casino style slot games.
  • Ads for products such as Uber.
  • There is an option to watch a video of a short advert, which will restore some ‘undos’.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
