Customer Reviews

Support for the color-blind!

I'm very impressed that this game has support for color blind people. Few game developers take this community of potential players into account.

As for the game itself, this is not a 'pick up-n-play' game. It feels more like a school lesson in color mixing made into a game. The complexity of color combinations was simply too much for me. I found myself straining to remember which colors added to create the colors that I wanted. Even after playing several times, I simply could not recall the various color combinations. To can see this challenge by simply holding your finger on the color palette (must be >25 different color combos to remember).

If you're a painter or artist, you may not get the same headache that I got playing this game. Also if you're into Match 3 games, then Dapple does try to introduce a new approach that might be just right for you.


This game is ok. That's it. It's not really exciting enough or addictive enough to be worth downloading. I'd recommend expanding the game play in the free version(it ends at lv 4) and using ads to monetize. Until then, meh.

Not very fun

Wasn't the worst game I've played, but would not buy the full version nor would I continue playing the lite version.
