Flippin Colors: iphone puzzle app review
Jonathan Smith has created this very interesting puzzle. Object: get grid to be 1 color. Drag your fingers along rows and columns. They will change to another color following a specific formula.
The easy puzzles are very easy. The harder puzzles.....are hard!
A few years ago I wrote an article for Games Magazine about Doug Engel's Circle Puzzles. I detailed how to tackle sequential movement puzzles using trial and error by going through a sequence of moves and recording what changed and what stayed the same. That's how to tackle Flippin Colors.
There's been an avalanche of puzzle apps. Many are variations of the 15 puzzle & sudoku. However, this is a puzzle that you can sink your teeth into & wrestle. We look forward to future puzzles from Mr. Smith.
