Coloroid: Every Android phone should have this veteran puzzler

Coloroid is one of the oldest games available on the Android Market and has been kicking around since the days of the T-Mobile G1. It’s still as fresh and fun to play now as it was back then. If you’ve just got an HTC Desire or a Sony Ericsson X10 Mini then you should download this post-haste.

A deceptively simple-looking puzzle game, Coloroid sits firmly in the ‘easy to pick up, impossible to put down’ category. The object is to change the colours of each block on a grid so that they’re the same. Sounds simple enough right?

It is, but you only get a set number of moves to complete each level. Going over par will result in you having to redo the level. Frustratingly, Coloroid keeps an overall log of your wins and losses which is permanently displayed in the top right corner. A constant reminder of your failure, it will sit there and mock you for eternity.

Coloroid is perfect for whiling away the hours on a long commute. When you exit the game it saves your last move so you can easily pick up from where you left off.

You can even choose can choose how many colours you have on the screen (3 to 6) and alter the colours to make it playable for those who are colour-blind.

Coloroid is free to download from the Android Market now and is available for virtually every Android device out there. So what are you waiting for?
