    Hello everyone!

    We are trying to change the gem colors and shapes. We are hoping the new color scheme will accommodate color blind people, and will make it much easier to distinguish between the darker colors. Also, it's a fresh look and feel. :)

    Here is how the current gem colors and shapes look:

    And here is the new colors and shapes:

    Any feedback is appreciated!

    Much better. Very clear and better defined.

    DO IT!

    When can we expect the upgrade with the current versions?

    I personally am pretty indifferent to the color change, but what I do need is an answer.

    I tried out the lite version and liked it, but have a question do you have a limited number of turns to complete the level???

    I'm leaning towards the new ones. I have no problem seeing the current colors, but I was one of the ones who noticed the "fuzziness." I personally like the new shapes and colors... However, the monsters stand out much better in the original. They kind of blend in with the new gems. Hmm now I'm conflicted. Oh well, I voted for "new" but use your best judgment!!

    Prefer the new look - the original one was kinda tricky for me (slight color blind)

    Thanks

    Nope, you complete the level as soon as all the monsters in that level are rescued - doesn't matter how long or how many moves it takes.

    Thanks for doing this! It would now help me alot more, especially since I can also use the shape of the gems to determine placement. There's just two gems that are slightly similar colour, causing me to double-check: on the Level12 screenshot (last one), the two gems on the bottom row, furthest left, are almost identical to me. Could you change the colour of one of them to something different? I apologise if I sound really demanding... :(

    As others have said, it would be best to allow users to toggle the option of colour-blind mode. Place it in the settings and mention it during the tutorial.

    I really like the current theme.

    The new one is necessary due colorblind.

    The best thing here is to create an option: Colorblind On/Off.

    I hope it is not too complicated but I think this is the best and more professional solution. You won't break the original game layout (some users may not accept the new one) and you'll please colorblind users (not only them of course).

    Take more time but do it the right thing! :)

    Well said. I also vote for you to take your time rather than rushing in and causing discontent from those preferring the original colours (which admittedly do look abit shinier)

    Definetly the new colours!!
    Seem more grown-up, more relaxing for the eyes.
    It's simply much easier to look at.

    Throwing my 2 cents in and saying that I prefer the original colors. No offense to being color blind but the new colors look kind of plastic looking and with the game being called Gemmed I would expect more gem looking pieces. Hopefully this can be made as an option within the game?

    Ok! Right now we are adding an option in the Options menu to toggle between the two color schemes! :)

    @hkiphone We'll adjust the colors of those two gems! No worries ;)
