Loving this game! Kind of reminds me of a 2048 style play, but with colors not numbers. This is better though. Lots of twists and things to challenge you. Bought the Unlock right away.

Wow! This is brilliant. Also, you can quickly learn the game and the 99 cent unlock removes advertisements (which are pretty unobtrusive) and adds new game modes.

Thanks to LordGek for suggesting the game!

I would Love to see some slightly less "pastely" theme options. I love the smoothness of everything but it's so bright.....

Great idea, I'll add a night mode in options. Check for future updates, I'll be pushing an update in a week or so, after more feedback comes through

Game Impressions

Wow!

Going in, I'll admit, I thought, "Cute, a color based take on Threes!" but once I played, it is clearly a twisted and original concept.

I love the game's twisted evolutionary flow:
1) Two different primary colors produce a secondary when merged.
2) Two different secondary colors produce brown when merged.
3) Two browns produce black when merged.
4) Two blacks produce a diamond when merged.
5) A diamond can then be merged with a red or green tile to up it's value.
6) Once colored gems, they can no longer merge and can only be eliminated by grouping with other gems in a 2x2 square.

If the above flow weren't freaky enough, there are 3 other bits floating about the periphery:
1) If you can ever create an entire row or column (5 in a row) of a single color, you'll gain a random powerup (usually some sort of bomb to clear out things when stuck).
2) White tiles with 1-4 little color tags can suddenly appear to muck things up. The only way to clear these obstacles is to simply give them what they want or blow them up.
3) Primary colored poker chips can drop by from time to time. These things are your buds! Just merge one into something like you would a normal primary color tile to earn a chip which can be spent once stuck to get you a random powerup!

My only request at this point, I'd love it if the locks and keys could somehow show up in the regular game at some late stage or maybe just a new high score based game mode with the lock and key element (maybe like a score based gameplay of a connected series of challenge levels?).

A few minor quibbles:

I thought the help presented when first playing the game did not explain things enough (for instance, the overall goal of the game). Regardless, it only took a few minutes to understand how to play.

When finishing a game in standard mode, it would be nice to have an immediate retry option instead of having to go back to the home screen to restart.

The in-game Game Center icons does not give me access to leaderboards and achievements. It jumps right into the Challenge I received with no access to the other areas.

I am loving this game!
