We’ve got great news if you didn’t download the spectacular game Bicolor when Apple made it free last month via the Apple Store app. It has just been named the Apple App of the Week and will again be free to download for the next seven days.
In this minimalistic puzzler, gamers get the chance to play through 240 levels. The objective of each level is to fill in the board with a chosen background color. Our own Christine Chan explains a little more in her review:
A number on top of several squares will indicate how many spaces you can “paint” with these squares. Each square it fills will count as one, so the number will decrease as you brush with it.
To paint with these squares, just drag them with your finger to adjacent squares that are not of the same color. To successfully complete each puzzle, you need to figure out the correct path for each numbered square in order to have one color on the board.
If you can’t figure the level out, you can use a Paint Bucket to solve the riddle.
Bicolor is a universal app designed for the iPhone/iPod touch and iPad/iPad mini.
Developer of Bicolor, 1Button SARL, has also created a number of other fun puzzle games. One of its latest, Poptile, nabbed a recent Honorable Mention in our AppAdvice Game of the Week contest in August.
