App description: Solve a jigsaw of light by blending colors and combining geometric shapes, in a cerebral challenge that's as relaxing as it is addictive. Chromixa is a unique and highly stylized puzzle title, guaranteed to satisfy, challenge and beguile in equal measure.

ABOUT
Beginning life as a digital art project, Chromixa is the enchanting result of designer Simon Watsons fascination with light. Inspired by noted artists such as James Clar and James Turrell, Chromixas first incarnation was a real life installation built from 100s of red, green and blue LEDs, a micro-controller, plexiglass, and one very creative brain.

With the concept of physically interactive light mixing at its core, Chromixa has gone through many evolutions, reaching its zenith as an exciting new puzzle genre on the App Store. The simplicity of blending primary colours and fitting tangram-style geometric shapes together offers a uniquely stimulating and addictive interactive experience.

GAMEPLAY
Arrange colored shapes of light to complete beautifully designed puzzles. Primary colors of red, green and blue are rotated, positioned and overlaid to create new tones as shapes overlap. Like a jigsaw of light, your goal is to arrange the shapes to fill an outline with a single color.

Completing puzzles unlocks fun arcade-style mini games, each with its own unique take on color mixing. Like all good puzzle titles, Chromixa is built upon a simple yet endlessly expandable concept, that unfurls to create progressively discerning challenges that are fun, beautiful and offer pleasing mental agility exercises for all ages.

Why do I always fall for that reverse psychology thing? It's like he's daring me to play it. Oh, alright!

It's not reverse psychology ... that would be more like: "undoubtedly the WORST iPhone game you’re not currently playing - don't try this awful game"

"Consider" it? It's free!

Anyway, this is an awesome game. I bought it months ago and it has yet to leave my phone. Terrific.
