Great game

Eh. I liked it enough to pay 1.99 for it, but it got boring pretty quickly. Guess it's just not my kind of game.

Easily one of the best and long lasting wp7 games. though very challenging, so it may not be for everyone. Gonna be tons of hours till I finish all the puzzles. I got it on deal of the week. A steal at $2. Even $3 ain't bad. This game is huge!(ADD ME to compare scores!)

Challenging and entertaining game; getting all the gold time metals certainly takes time.

Ok just not my type of game but don't let me discourage those that like it get it now that it's only a 1.99 after the deal of the week is over it goes back to being over priced.

Very challenging, and addicting. The regular mode in itself is fun; solving the puzzles in the amount of moves alloted. But when you throw in the time trials...wow... A whole new, and demanding aspect of the game appears. Coordination and memory come into play. Definitely one of my fav games on my Focus. ADD ME! Majestek One

Not a bad game at all, after buying it by accident I can't say the game warrants the $5 entry fee. Try the demo first

Not only is this game one of the best games on WP7, it might be the best puzzle game I've ever played. Its wonderfully addictive and has a good length. Along with some great features for a wonderful price. Its a must buy for anyone who enjoys a good puzzle game

Overall fun & challenging. However , some time trials are simply not possible, therefore 100% gamerscore is pretty much out of reach. Please fix! For the love of god, I keep trying and its simply not f-ing possible!!!!!

Nice puzzle game. A bit too expensive though

If you like puzzle games, this one should keep you busy. The Xbox achievements make it more addictive

Been playing this game from day one. I love it. Simple yet enough complexity to keep you involved. I enjoy the challenge of getting the medals especially the time challenges.

I have been enjoying competing against my friends for gold move and time medals. The game doesn't have a very high production value, but it is a great, simple puzzler.
 
2010-12-21 03:25 VintageLyric
Excellent!
 
2010-12-21 07:13 Meekajahama
While the production qualities seem a bit low (slow to load, visuals a bit low), the game itself is fantastic and really has you thinking hard when going for gold medals as you progress up the ranks.

What an addicting and perfectly implemented game! A must have for puzzle fans..

This is a wonderful puzzle game that never gets old and is a lot of fun. It's especially great on the wp7 system.

It's a great brain game. Also kudos on implementing an option for the color blind. WTG.

This game starts out so simple but gets complex very quick. It is visually appealing, challenging and addictive, everything you could want out of a puzzle game!

Fun puzzles, but the time medals leave no room for error and are too difficult on a touchscreen where it's so easy to hit the wrong button by mistake.

Great Game
Very fun game. Quick puzzles that will keep you on your toes.
 
2010-11-17 13:33 Thomas Sobieck
fun & hard!
It starts out as a simple concept but I felt it got pretty challenging pretty quickly. I wish there were more hints and strategies provided. But I guess that's what the Internet is for. Definitely won't out play this game anytime soon.
 
2010-11-17 18:09 b0owahaha
Addictive.
 
2010-11-16 20:46 UNT1TLED
Requires actual thought!
This is a delightfully simple puzzle game that doesn't place a lot of emphasis on speed. As a result, it is great when you just want to sit down and burn through a puzzle for the brain exercise rather than the adrenaline rush. The screenshots don't really give a lot of insight into how the game actually works, so if they look confusing, just go ahead and try it out. One caveat is that the game depends on perception of color and there's unfortunately no affordance for colorblind players.
 
2010-11-15 20:52 Graceful Ghost
Quite a fun, addicting game.
 
2010-11-15 03:45 GameCaMiller
Fun as hell. Best puzzle game I've seen so far. Price may be high, but it's comparable to other Xbox wp7 games.
 
2010-11-14 09:18 piecar
Looks like fun and I want to buy it, however $5 is too expensive.
 
2010-11-13 00:19 Stoneysilence77
Though visually the game could use some work (for example, buttons with text that isn't properly aligned and other poor looking things), Glow Artisan is super fun! The trial is indeed way too easy, but the games do get harder. Love the gameplay and achievements!
 
2010-11-10 20:40 phamenoth
The trial/tutorial is brain-dead simple. I think the developer shot themselves in the foot here. But worry not! You'll be scratching your head long before you finish with the "beginner" puzzles, and some of the later ones are quite difficult. Only issue I have is that the author couldn't decide if you're mixing paint or light...
 
2010-11-08 08:02 ElChive
Interesting puzzle game with plenty to do
Minus one star for being more expensive than it should be and for the graphics being a little rough around the edges (for a UI that's all about flat-colored blocks being beautiful, this somehow seems ugly-ish!), but the gameplay is solid and I get the sense that there's plenty to keep me entertained for a while. A good pick-up-and-play kind of experience.
