I have been playing this gem for a few days now and it is a great challenging puzzler. If you like games like Pathpix and Nonograms/Picross, I recommend picking this one up!

I agree, a very fun puzzlegame with a lot of puzzles and good replay value to try to solve each of them with the least amount of moves.

I saw you refer to this as a "hidden gem" in another thread and I love it. Thanks for posting a thread to make sure it didn't remain hidden. This thing just oozes polish and the color mixing is a clever addition to the Picross blueprint.

Now I'm off to check out the other game you mentioned...

This is a great looking little puzzler - I only wish it was universal....

I mentioned this to Touchgamer3g (not trying to promote other games), but another game using color that was another hidden gem from quite a long time ago is Copy Cat: A Painter's Puzzle. I tested and it still works fine under iOS 4.21.

I don't get into the light combining apps as much as these types. Anyways, great find Touchgamer3g. Tried the lite, loved it and picking up the full version.

I played this game on DSiWare and it was quite fun. I will probably be picking this one up.

@pluto6 - Yeah, Copy Cat is a great recommendation. A little hard to grok at first, but it's rewarding when you do.

Was heading to the appstore to get the game only to find it has increased in price by $2. Oh well, to the wish list it goes, until I can no longer hold it off. =P
