Gemmed! New Colors - Feedback Appreciated

Hello everyone!

We are trying to change the gem colors and shapes. We are hoping the new color scheme will accommodate color blind people, and will make it much easier to distinguish between the darker colors. Also, it's a fresh look and feel.

Here is how the current gem colors and shapes look:


And here is the new colors and shapes:



Any feedback is appreciated!

Much better. Very clear and better defined.

DO IT!

When can we expect the upgrade with the current versions?

I personally am pretty indifferent to the color change, but what I do need is an answer.

I tried out the lite version and liked it, but have a question do you have a limited number of turns to complete the level???

I'm leaning towards the new ones. I have no problem seeing the current colors, but I was one of the ones who noticed the "fuzziness." I personally like the new shapes and colors... However, the monsters stand out much better in the original. They kind of blend in with the new gems. Hmm now I'm conflicted. Oh well, I voted for "new" but use your best judgment!!

Prefer the new look - the original one was kinda tricky for me (slight color blind)

Thanks

Nope, you complete the level as soon as all the monsters in that level are rescued - doesn't matter how long or how many moves it takes.

Thanks for doing this! It would now help me alot more, especially since I can also use the shape of the gems to determine placement. There's just two gems that are slightly similar colour, causing me to double-check: on the Level12 screenshot (last one), the two gems on the bottom row, furthest left, are almost identical to me. Could you change the colour of one of them to something different? I apologise if I sound really demanding...

As others have said, it would be best to allow users to toggle the option of colour-blind mode. Place it in the settings and mention it during the tutorial.
