Lokeren based app developer Next Apps is currently scoring big with its mobile game Colorcube. Released last year, the minimalistic puzzle game managed to sell well, reaching the top downloads spot in several countries. The charts peaked like never before when Apple selected Colorcube as Free App of the Week last month. With more than one million downloads in 124 countries the game is the first Belgian mobile app to go viral on such a scale.
Colorcube is a minimalistic puzzle game that marries simple, yet challenging, puzzles design with beautiful visual aesthetics. The game was developed together with game designer Dieter Stein. In the game’s 250 levels you get a set of coloured shapes that you need to rotate in order to mimic the example up top. To make things more interesting (and difficult), players can change the colour of shapes and overlapping patterns will blend. Since colour is so important, Next Apps included different colour schemes to make the game accessible to people with colour deficiencies.
The music for the game was created by Manoeuvres, the latest music project of Sean Dhondt. He was asked for the project by Next Apps developer Christophe Todts, who was the bassist of Dhondt’s former band Nailpin. He stripped Manoeuvres tracks to create an ambient soundtrack that goes really well with the soothing experience the game offers.
Even after the end of the promotion Colorcube continues to do well in the charts. You can currently get it for € 2,29 on the App Store.
