Developer alper iskender has a simple game philosophy: keep it easy, keep it light, keep it colorful, and keep it challenging. In polycolor, you’re given just three colors: fuchsia, yellow, and cyan blue. You’re then tasked with filling in a geometrical shape with these colors, but here’s the challenge: the same color can’t fill in a neighboring space. While things start off simple enough, you’ll then have to fill in the shapes in just a few moves. polycolor will keep you relaxed as you think of the best way to complete a colorful level.
After trying out the app, I was utterly amazed by the attention to detail in this minimalist game, which includes a captivating soundtrack that will relax you, very intuitive one-tap controls, and a solid puzzle challenge that will force you to think, making for a game worth purchasing.
While the core gameplay brings a solid challenge, in some levels, I wish there was a hint system as well as a level select screen. The game also doesn’t feature a lot of configurable settings. Despite these issues, you’ll still must play polycolor.
