Think you know your brands and TV shows? Test your knowledge in Colormania

I enjoy logo games that come to BlackBerry 10 devices. They're the style of game which really tests how much you notice things and Colormania is one of those. A game suited for young and old, Colormania tests your knowledge of brand logos, characters, TV shows, celebrities and everyday things.

You are presented with a logo, animated character, everyday objects and more, all in plain form. Your task is to guess the correct color or colors that go with that icon from the selection given. It may sound easier than it seems but as the levels progress you'll slowly realize you may not be as knowledgeable as you think. Or maybe that's just me. It's a simple game but executed so well.

There is a short tutorial when you first load up the game but it's pretty straightforward. When you first start the game you have three lives. You also have some power-ups. A hammer, which eliminates wrong colors and a brush which reveals the correct color - you get two of each of these at the beginning. When these have run out you can purchase more via in-app purchasing. Prices depend on the bundle you choose to buy. When you run out of lives, the game is over. You then have the ability to get more lives by spinning a wheel. Depending on where the needle lands you can get 0-4 lives but you'll have to wait a certain number of minutes before this number becomes available. This wait time increases the more times you run out of lives. So, if you don't want to be waiting that long, you've got be to careful. You can be waiting up to hour (that's the maximum I've seen so far). Of course, you could just buy more lives if you don't want to wait. And if you think you can just close down the game and reopen to get the spinning wheel of lives, guess again. The countdown continues right from where it left off.

Colormania definitely has me gripped and does keep me wanting more, especially when I run out of lives and want to continue getting the answer right. With more than 200 icons spread over 20 levels, there a lot to keep you busy.

The sounds and graphics are pretty cool, especially when you select the correct color. There isn't anything that I can fault the game in, other than it can get very addictive but that's one of the reasons I love it so much.

It's free to download, so there is no reason for you not to give it a go. It's available for the Z10, Q10, Q5 and the PlayBook, so whatever BlackBerry 10 device you have you won't be missing out on all the fun.

Deleted after 30min. I don't like apps who want to make money with your life

the future is easy because it doesn't exist

How is this app making money with your life??? Gosh extreme much? And if you are referring to the in-app purchases within the game, that's how other games do it too. Like candy crush? smh at the exaggerations.

He's just bad at it. I finished all available levels without paying a cent.

Marketing is everything

Yes I'm referring, purchase in to the app (game). I don't like it and I don't support it. You apparently do it, so feel free to support the dev.

the future is easy because it doesn't exist

No, arfin is right, these people make money off developing apps. That's their job. If you can't support a dev, you're just a kid that wants to get everything for free.

It's only 1 hour, not 24. This is how almost all free to play games are; either wait for lives or buy them.

I had this game since it was first released months ago. Yes, the first few versions made you wait progressively longer if you lost lives. But for this version, I think the maximum is only 1 hour. I already finished the game and am awaiting new levels so I can't be too sure.

I understand all the negative comments about the time that you have to wait before you can play again.That is what you get from free apps,motherfuckers.Stupid complainers

Just set the time on your phone ahead an hour each time if you don't like waiting. Then back when done. Simple.

This game is better since the update. It's fun and anyone complaining about having to pay, how about you work for free and see if you like it. These developers work hard to make apps for us, the least we can do is help them out.
