LordGek's comments:


I wasn't that impressed from the screenshots but, by golly, it is actually a pretty original color mixing match 3 game with a zillion variations that all have their highscores tracked separately on OF and locally. A little on the speedy side (you need to react quickly before the screen fills up), but definitely entertaining and definitely worth more than $0!

I don't know if I'm doing something wrong, but tilting does nothing, and touching the screen just males the blocks fall. Swiping the screen also does nothing other than makes the blocks fall.

Whoops. Read the directions. Fun game, challenging too.

That threw me as well, I understood the color mixing was a big part of it but initially though something was wrong when I couldn't influence the falling blocks.

All you do in this game is mix colors to change the colors of the blocks already landed, you have no control over the guys that are falling so stop trying!

Game Impressions

The shop is a cool aspect as well.

If you noticed when trying to customize your game many of the options are grayed out. To enable those options you need to buy them in the game's shop using the total number of blocks removed so far as your currency (FEAR NOT, no in-app purchases are involved!). The shop will list 3 options at a time with the only way to get new ones to show up is by buying an exiting one. So, at least according to the game's help, you've essentially conquered the game once you managed to buy up all of the shop options.
