Feeling blue? We've got a game that can help you start seeing things through rose-tinted glasses. In Colorize, a clever puzzle game, click and drag a shape with a glowing outline to combine it with others of the same color. This causes the screen to turn that color and gobble up anything else of the same hue. Before you move anything, check the border of the playing field. This is the color you need the screen to be very last or you'll have to try again. Press escape to open the menu where you can restart the level or go back to the menu. Ready to paint the town red?
While some level solutions are obvious, most take careful forethought and planning. You really have to look at the layers of colors to deduce which move to make first. If you fling shapes around the screen, they bounce off the walls and other shapes so sometimes it's prudent to go slowly and move things out of the way. A few puzzles have colors that are so similar as to be hard to tell apart, but there is an option on the main screen to change the color pallet that may help if you're having trouble with this. For the most part you'll be tickled pink by the pleasing pictures and vibrant hues of the game. The music and sounds when you combine colors are relaxing, though sadly can't be muted. The game unlocks a couple of levels at a time, so if you get stuck, head back to the menu to try a different puzzle. If you like games such as Flood Fill, give Colorize a try. Your friends will be green with envy to see you playing this at work... as long as you're not caught red-handed by your boss, that is.
