Touch Arcade recently took a look at Colorblind, a minimalistic puzzle game that has you connecting colored dots with like colored ribbons until all dots on screen are accounted for.
While you may think that you can simply trace your finger along any makeshift line and complete a level, the gameplay’s main rule eliminates that outcome. Ribbons can only drawn in such a way as they don’t intersect with any other ribbon the same plane. To try and put this simply, ribbons that are going to cross the same geographical space (when looked at from above) must do so by traveling under or over the ribbons that are already there.
By adding a 90 degree turn to the ribbon, you affect its plane by literally folding it on top of, or under itself. This will allow you to collect dots that were once unreachable, and ultimately complete the level.
There are 84 levels in all, complete with achievements to be earned throughout. You can shake the screen to erase your progress, or double tap on the screen to go back to the menu and choose a different level.
As the gameplay might sound a bit odd through text, here’s a video of the game in action to give you a better idea of what’s in store.
