Forge11's comments:

Hi guys, this is Fabio from Forge 11, a small new iPhone/iPad publisher.

Colorous: A Color Odyssey is one of our first games. It's an original match-3 puzzle game with cute and cartoony graphics. We acquired the game from its developer AVOC Software and revamped it from its original release adding a handful of new features.

We're also giving away a few promo codes in exchange of reviews on AppStore. If you liked the game, give it a positive review. If you don't like, don't be afraid to give it a negative review, with 1 or 2 stars. If you're honest, we will appreciate your effort in both situations.

Unfortunately, we just have 10 promo codes, so if you like to test the game, write a PM and I'll send you the code.

I hope you like the game!

Thank you guys for the overwhelming response (in PM)!

The first batch of codes has been distributed. First come, first served, unfortunately. But I hope I'll be able to distribute other codes in the future.

Play the game and let me know, here on the forums or anywhere else, if you liked it and which are, in your opinion, its pros and its cons.

Thanks a lot.

Ok, just tried it.
I chose the "Classic" (a "Story" mode is also present) mode and i made through the tutorial, well made and clear, since it's a game that requires knowledge of some (yet simple) colors combinations. There's a sort of manual, called "Colorpedia" that's explains every detail of the game and that reveals itself as a great help expecially for the first times. Something similar can be find in an in-game option that shows possible colors combinations the player can do for make matches between chromies. There are also many useful powerups to help you during the game.
Graphic is clean, simple but well done; music seems a little repetitive to me but you can turn it off if you want and put on your own iPod tracks.
One thing i'd really like, and a suggestion to the devs, it's an online world leaderboard that doesn't require Facebook integration to use it.
Definitely a good work by Forge11 even if it's not the usual match-3 or something like that game; it requires more a little more use of logic, and to me this is a +1 point for "Colorous".
