Android Apps Review: Coloroid

Coloroid is a free puzzle applications for Android. The goal of the game is to make the entire board one color. The player always starts at the top right corner, then selects one of the possible colors at the bottom of the screen, which changes all of the neighboring blocks with that color to have the already active active color. Then the next selection changes all the already changed blocks, adding the neighboring ones again and so on. There is a Par of moves to complete each level, which increases with the difficulty of the level. The player can set the number of blocks on the field (4x4 to 35 to 35), as well as the number of colors to have (3 to 6). There is even a setting for the colorblind users.

The game requires strategical thinking to be able to beat the level under the Par. It is very simple to control, has no sound and looks somewhat retro, thanks to its color schemes. It is much harder than Future Blocks and offers more options.

Worth installing? If you are a puzzle games fan, this is a good game to have.

What do I want to see in future versions? User-selected colors, sound, save game option.

Rating: 7/10
