Coloroid is a small puzzle app for Android smartphones that takes advantage of the touchscreen capabilities found on most of the devices. The game, as you probably have already guessed, is based on colors, not something too unique to puzzle apps but still.

The game presents the player with a 5x5 grind of colors all jumbled up. At the bottom is a palette of those same colors. The object of the game is make the entire board one color, like a Rubik's Cube. But instead of switching tiles, the game has you tap on a color which will then change the main blob to the adjacent color. It's really hard to describe in words but that's ok because the concept is dead-simple, a little too simple actually. You are only given a certain amount of tries to reach par before you lose and have to try again.

But as a general game concept, this app had a hard time feeling like a puzzle even. That alone would have been enough to put it down but I also couldn't help but notice a very basic and sometimes ignorant design that really seemed rushed. The game is free in the app store, but pretty much what you have seen in the video review is basically the experience you'll get.
