Inventive, intuitive, and incredible!
Paint It Back is an absolute hidden gem of a puzzler. Simple controls allow for even the tech-illiterate (I'm looking at you, Great-Aunt Myrtle) to easily pick up and play. Beautifully tactile sound effects reward your efforts with satisfying clicks and crunches, and give an extra level of addictiveness to the already captivating gameplay. And clever puzzle images leave you curious to find out what "Pregnant Again, Mr. Seahorse?" actually looks like.
On top of all of this, the game's achievements are just tough enough to make you work for them, but still remain attainable -- giving players another reason to come back, time and again.
If you're a fan of puzzlers, Picross, or just want a great way to waste some time, pick up Paint it Back. It's a pretty perfect puzzler.
This is one of the best games I've downloaded in awhile, but there's one glaring thing missing: an "undo" button. I can't tell you how many times I realize suddenly that I made a logical error five moves ago but don't know how to manually undo it.
And a few times I accidentally hit the screen but wasn't sure quite where. An undo button would fix either issue.
I also can't understand why there are timing-related achievements, but the timer is not prominently displayed on the screen as you're doing the puzzle. Nor does it give you any clue how much time can run out before you lose the achievement.
The game starts easy and gets more difficult with higher levels. Yes, it is missing the 'undo' function and on an iPhone it's easy to misclick a square, but I still give it five stars.
All puzzles can be solved logically, not by guessing. I only encountered one where I had to guess out of two possible combinations. It was at the end where I could quickly undo it and try the other.
I like how bigger pictures are broken down into segments. Some of the pictures are cute, others nonsensical. This was the first time I tried this type of puzzle. Job well done.
