    Hey, my game Petri has just been released recently on the iTunes store.

    The idea is simple. The screen has a bunch of colors that are swirling around. You can drag your finger to erase a color or double-tap to change the colors. You want to make the whole screen whatever color is written at the bottom. The timer keeps track of your best time for each level.

    Right now, there are 99 levels. I'm hoping to expand this number in future releases.

    It costs $.99.

    You can see it action here:


    And the iTunes Store link is here: http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=300415437&mt=8

    Anyway, check it.

  7. Juicy - Yeah. I'm a little worried about the color blind audience.

    I'm also worried about epileptic seizures. :D

    But there is just this part of me deep down which can't turn it my eyes away from swirling colors. Hopefully, I am not the only one.

    Don't want a code as I'm in Canada and therefore is useless to me, but right off the bat, those colours just hurt.
    Is there a way to make them less intense or something?

    A lite version is always welcome. There are too many games and we're in a point that's not possible to buy all those $0.99 games without spending some good money at the end of a month.


    ////Edited due brewstermax post below. Thanks.

    The dev explicitly said that he had codes to give. That isn't breaking the rules.

    I went ahead and downloaded it. The video looked interesting, simple pick up and play.

    There are a few different "styles" of backgrounds that you color. One is pixelated, another is more smooth, etc...

    There doesnt not seem to be a way to pause the game w/ out going leaving the game then relaunching it, but it loads fast, so thats nothing bad. It keeps track of your best times on each level, as of right now I don't see a level select.

    Those are my only complaints, it plays well, no slowdown, and the interesting part is trying to figure out the colors to delete first. Since as the creator said, certain colors will eat others.

    If you are trying to make the lvl red, blue will eat into it. So when you are deleting colors, you happen to ignore blue, before you know it your screen will be blue and you will be trying to salvage the last bit of red you have or the color that eats blue.

    You can tap the screen to make a little area of different colors come up, so if you do get overrun by one color, just tap around and try to remove it.

    Played about 12 levels so far, its nice quick play/pick up anytime game.

    Ok. I like the game. Ok, n/m, this game is amazing. It is easily one of my favorite games. Completely addictive, but I agree that the colors are bright. You have to think, but it is a lot of luck. I have the strategy to draw around the desired color and let is spread, but some levels take much longer than others. Fantastic game.

    It would be nice to have a chart of which colors eat other colors. That would help a lot. The directions are unclear, but you catch on eventually.

    The game looks pretty cool, but I'm afraid it'll hurt my eyes if I play it too long :p

    He ran out of codes around 11:30 this morning, so I'm guessing your not gonna get a code. Welcome to the forums though
