July 11, 2014

Help restore life to a mechanical world before it’s too late in Fingerlab’s fast-paced platformer, Atom Run. We also have an app that will help you find new ways to express yourself through words, and a powerful and supremely accurate world clock.

iPhone:

Writing Aid allows you to instantly search for definitions and synonyms just like a standard dictionary. But where it really shines is its meanings search.

The color you need to match is indicated by the springy looking line connected to an orbiting planet, and you can see how your mix is turning out by watching the big star. To mix your colors, just slide your fingers up or down on their circles. As you progress through the game things really start to speed up, so be ready! The game includes six different levels, and leaderboards via Game Center. Color/Space is available for free for a limited time. It has a 4-star rating with a total of 15 ratings.

Tap the eye in the middle of the screen to get started. You’ll then see a very small, thin image of a famous person’s eyes surrounded by all of your possible options. Tap on the correct one to move on to the next. That’s it! Just enjoy the view and try to complete all of the levels.
