Still some PROMO CODES left!

Hey, everyone,

there are 2 more promo codes we have to give for the answer to the question:

How does the color mixing work in Twinoo?
Even more specifically: how does the Johannes Ittens color wheel help to determine the correct color when mixing a primary (blue, yellow, red) with a secondary (green, orange, purple) color?

PM me the answer, and you get the code!

Game Impressions

It's quite startling how good this game is; such a simple concept and so compelling to play. Imagine pitting your right brain versus your left brain in a brutal, fight-to-the-death cage match, while under the pressure of two clocks ticking away rapidly, with each hemisphere knowing that it's three strikes and your out. God, that's a horrible mixed metaphor (or fabulous, depending on your outlook), but cut me some slack, because I'm not being paid for this.

You are tasked with solving math equations on screen-left and color theory puzzles on screen-right. What's non-obvious, however, is that your brain also needs to make a series of lightning fast assessments, in tandem, of your ability to solve each specific task presented, in the remaining time, and then acting on it. By this I mean, even within a category some puzzles will be harder than otherss: maybe your a genius with addition and subtraction, but your division is pretty weak, or maybe you know all of the primary color-mixing, but tossing asecondary color in there throws you off. With each new pairing, you have to do an instant threat assessment, based on your skill and knowledge, in order to determine which question to answer.

Also worth noting is the crisp and minimalist artwork, so perfectly fit to purpose. It actually has a surpring amount of replay value, as well, because you want to challenge youself to do better on the next round. This may not be for everyone, but if you are intrigued by the concept, you are likely to enjoy it, because I can't imagine what one would do to improve upon the concept. It just works. In short, what it does, it does well, so it's just a matter of whether you like what it does.

Open the door into the science of Color Theory!

A big thanks again to all who participated in the Twinoo challenge and here is an in-depth article on Color Theory with some really nice pictures to explain them ixing of colors in much much detail.


Hope you like it and put it to good use - by playing Twinoo that is!

Twinoo for web is FREE to PLAY!

Oh, did I forget to mention that Twinoo is also available on the web to try for FREE?


I should add that the touch interface is much much more natural to use with Twinoo!

Easter Twinoo!

Hey, we released Easter Twinoo - a special Easter Holiday version of Twinoo for FREE!

We also made some egg paint available via a 0.99 in-app purchase, which adds some nice symbols on the eggs to make the game easier. Or even more complicated - you decide, and let me know in the comments!

At least the eggs look nicer with the egg paint symbols.

Anyway, here it is:


★★★★★ Happy Easter! LIMITED TIME OFFER - FREE Easter Twinoo! ★★★★★
★★★★★ Now with EGG PAINT to enable even more of your right brain hemisphere! ★★★★★

Logic and art come together in this simple and brilliant game.
Get ready to teach your brain some new stuff!

"Development studio Dawn of Play, who also made the
rather excellent Twinoo!"

Whoa! I just found that Twinoo is obviously so good, that it was blatantly copied by another game!

What is that saying:
"Imitation is the highest form of flattery"
