Released by Loomus Games, Prismatica is hex-based puzzler that began on desktop systems, and he has been ported over to mobile. In an interesting twist, the game concentrates on blending colors to setup the board that needs solving. The game begins with primary colors (red, blue, or? yellow) with every group of hexes being made up of one.
Where the groups of hexes overlap, the secondary colors emerge (red and yellow would cause orange to look where they two primaries overlap). Then, the groups of hexes are “spun” on their respective axes, causing the secondary colored hexes to become shifted around, becoming unnatural and lie between the wrong primary colors. The gamer must “unwind” it well to their logical positions.
