These past few weeks, I have been playing a game called 'Colorcube' on my iPad.
If you don't know what I'm talking about :
Colorcube is a puzzle game with a very simple goal : recreate the image you see on top of the screen.
The kicker is : you have to match both shape AND color !
Sort of like 'Tangram Squared', if you know what I mean (= NOT easy !).
It took me a while before I fully understood how to play the game, but once I did ... it became
very difficult to put the game away. It is addictive !
The Good :
I wholeheartedly recommend this game to anyone that loves puzzles !
It is a lot of fun (in a Zen kind of way).
The interface is clean and intuitive. The rules of the game are simple.
Finally solving an elusive puzzle translates into immense feelings of satisfaction.
The Bad : Well, obviously not 'bad' (I give this game a 10/10),
but rather some thoughts I had about the game.
I would have loved a 'reset' button. Especially towards the end of the game, it becomes rather
cumbersome to deselect each and every puzzle piece when you're stuck and you need to try a different
When you're stuck, you're stuck. No hints.
(Unless you ask for a hint (no, not the solution !) on Twitter, which I had to do once for a puzzle that I
had been stuck on for a week ... )
