Colortrix Mobile, thumbnail 1
Colortrix is to Tetris as Corn Flakes are to Frosties: the two games are structurally similar, but that sugary coating makes the world of difference.

Some people prefer Corn Flakes, but we all know the sweet allure of Frosties is something to be reckoned with. So, when it comes to creating a game that riffs on Tetris's core idea of clearing lines with the help of falling blocks, it’s easy to draw parallels.

That said, Colortrix does have an ace up its sleeve.

Colour me interested

Instead of matching shapes to clear a space on the screen, Colourtrix only ever sends down small vertical lines of three blocks for you to place at the bottom. The difference here is that each block is a different colour.

Instead of turning the shape around to fit a space on the screen, you can rotate the colour order. This allows you to match three of the same colour in a line to clear a space and gain some points.

Over time, immoveable grey blocks come up from the bottom of the screen to pile on the pressure, and as you gain levels pieces fall faster.

It's a fun game to play every now and again, but there's not enough here to make it a gripping endeavour, and it's nowhere near charming or interesting enough to hold your attention like Tetris always manages to do.

The potential is here for a deeply strategic puzzle game, but it only really amounts to a bit of fun when you've got very little else around to entertain yourself with
