Strategically Color Blocks with Colorem
In recent years, modern gaming has essentially become synonymous with fast-paced kill sprees, adrenaline-provoking competitiveness, and visuals good enough to fool casual observers. But every once in a while, a simple yet ingenious game is released that makes us put down our copies of BF4 and GTR-E and use our noggins. XDA Forum Member LZ77 created one such game called Colorem.
The concept behind Colorem is simple. Your goal is to color all of the blocks on your screen using four provided colors—but it’s not as simple as it sounds. You can only color a certain number of blocks in each color, and no two adjacent blocks can be the same color. This doesn’t sound that difficult—and at first, it isn’t. But in later levels, it becomes infuriatingly challenging.
Coloring in the blocks is easy. All you have to do is tap a block to add a color. Tapping multiple times cycles between the available colors. However, once you move on to the next block, you can’t go back to a previous block to change its color. This makes planning ahead essential.
The game features 30 levels, with more on the way, and it should keep you entertained and using your grey matter for quite some time. Make your way over to the game thread to get started.
