Blendoku 2 Review [iOS]

blendoku2_iconLooking for a new puzzle game that’s familiar, yet different? Check out Blendoku 2 by Lonely Few. As a warning, this game isn’t for those who are color challenged. Blendoku 2 is sort of like Sudoku, but instead of numbers, you use colors to fill in the empty blocks. There are no repeat in colors and what you’ll have to do is put the colors in order based on their hue. For example, you’re given what seems like a random assortment of colors but in actuality, they can be ordered in such a way where they can blend one color into another. It’s like looking at a rainbow where you’re not entirely sure where one color ends and another begins.

The game starts off easily enough with just a few colors at first to ease you into the game. It doesn’t seem terribly hard at first but the difficulty ramps up tremendously once you start seeing more rows and columns added. Of course its even more challenging if you can’t tell the difference between color hues, which apparently is a pretty common problem. Again, this game will be almost impossible for those who are color challenged.

In my case, I can play this game just fine and have so far gotten through a good portion of the puzzles. I did try to jump to the high level puzzles, but it just gets ridiculously hard at that point. Overall though, Blendoku 2 is a rather interesting puzzle game that should at least be tried. If you can figure it out, it can be quite satisfying when you complete each puzzle. If you can’t, you’ll just be left scratching your head as to why.
