App description: "PiCTOS" is a fun puzzle game, even for people who are not good at solving puzzles!
Be ready to get into the game for hours!


- Rules

The rules are very simple.
Paint a block with 5 colors: red, yellow, green, blue, and purple, then match 5 blocks of the same color to erase them.
That's it!
Paint your favorite color and erase blocks!


- Once you get used to the game control...

The more chain reactions your make, the more points your get.
Trigger chain reactions to aim for a high score.
When the star is blinking, you can use the star paint.
The star paint allows you to paint all the blocks that are same color as the selected color in a new color. So it's a chance to erase blocks in bulk!

-Tips to get a high score

Watch out when the level is going up if you are aiming the high score.
The level won't go up when the chain reaction is happening while the LAST field shows 0.
This means you can erase more blocks and get more points.
When the level goes up, the remaining time will be added to the score as a bonus.
It is important to leave the time limit as high as possible when going to the next level.
Painting with the same color will drop down your score when erasing blocks. Change the color from time to time to keep your score up.

Looks really polished, but is it fun?
