Product Description

Kotaku: “I’ve not had this much fun mixing colors since — I’ve never had this much fun mixing colors.”

New York Times: “...your once-fumbling fingertips will be flying across the spectrum. You’ll barely notice you’ve learned something without having to crack open a single crusted-over container of paint.”

Entertainment Weekly: “What’s a color-changing lamb to do when it’s being attacked by multihued wolves? Incinerate them with lasers beams, obviously, in this whimsical shooting game.”

Hordes of vicious wolves have emerged from the mouth of Wolfcano to steal life and color from the world. Now the Knight of Light, Sir Woolson, must ready his color-changing fleece and magical powers as the last defense against the darkness!

Color Sheep is a fast-paced arcade game in which players change Woolson’s color to match oncoming wolves by mixing different intensities of red, green, and blue light. An intuitive swipe-based interface makes forming combos a breeze. When Woolson is charged, tap him to release an incinerating laser blast! Magical items dropped by enemies summon fantastical nature spells to protect Woolson and smite the evil lupine invaders. With adaptive difficulty, over twenty color combinations to master, and Facebook integrated leaderboards, Color Sheep is easy to learn but hard to put down!

Note: Color Sheep requires players to perceive a wide range of colors and is not recommended for those with color blindness.

Thanks for playing! Please email us with any feedback at team@trinketstudios.com

As other reviews have already pointed out, this is one of those games where you're not sure what the target audience is. The bright colors and goofy "story" suggest something meant for kids, but the difficulty is a bit too sharp for anyone but adults to get very far. At first, the gameplay seems simple. There's a sheep on the left side of the screen, and wolves approach from the right side to eat it. You have to help the sheep destroy each wolf by changing the sheep's color to match the wolf's, then tapping the sheep to attack. Doing well will net items that destroy several wolves, slow them down, etc. But how do you match the color? That's where things get tricky.

There are three primary color buttons on the left side of the screen (red, blue, green) and two shade buttons on the right (dark, bright). At first all you have to do is tap the desired color while holding the shade button. So for a dark red wolf, you hold "dark" and tap "red," while for light blue you hold "light" and tap "blue." That's tricky enough-- pressing opposite sides of the screen at the same time isn't easy at the best of times, and the app doesn't have the best input detection in the world. But soon it gets even more elaborate. First you have to mix colors by holding the shade button and swiping across two colors: hold "dark" and swipe across red and green to make dark yellow. (Despite what some reviewers have suggested, this is not incorrect color science, just the use of an additive [light] rather than a subtractive [paint] model of color combination.) Then you have to mix colors and shades, combining light red and dark green to make orange. Apparently it gets even more involved, but that was the point where I gave up.

I thought it would be easy since it looked like a childs game. I was very wrong. This game requires you to remember what colors you need to swipe together in order to make different colors so you can defeat the wolves before they eat the lamb. It starts off easy but only after two games and your running like a crazy person to get the colors.

This is a great little game. There is a bit of a learning curve, but run both the tutorial and the practice game to get the hang of the colors. Practice will show you which colors make the other colors, and you can do it as long as you need to in order to remember them (the game will also remind you as they come up).
Even on Junior level, the game moves pretty fast, so remember to use your special objects as often as possible! It makes a difference!
Thanks to the devs for a fun and ad-free game.

I played this game on my kindle fire. I had no technical issues or problems pushing the color buttons on the screen.

Be warned this game is definitely tough! Like the other reviews I do wish that red and blue made purple in the game instead of some random color, but it'll just take some used to getting familiar with the wacky color combinations. For this game, you definitely need two hands to play.

I think it is a fun way to pass the time, but gameplay is definitely stressful! It was the free app of the day and I would recommend the download.

I really wanted to like this one--there's something extremely appealing about fire-breathing multicolored sheep--but I found the controls too difficult to cope with.

1) I'm sufficiently ancient that two-handed tablet controls are difficult for me
2) the controls requiring more dexterity (swiping) are on the left-hand side
3) the red-green-blue color model does not come naturally to me

At least I recognized the color model, which seems to have thrown many reviewers for a loop. (It may help that I was in print publishing and used to the concept of CMY, which of course are the secondaries in RGB.) It would be nice to have an option to use the pigment-based red-yellow-blue color model, which is more familiar/intuitive to most people.

Several reviews have commented on the colors being wrong and that they should be red, yellow, and blue (not green). No offense, but you don't know as much about color as you think you do. Do a google image search of "RGB" and you will see what I am talking about. red+green does indeed = yellow...In fact, they got it completely right, calling the secondary colors properly "cyan", "magenta" and "yellow".

For those of you dead set on red, yellow, and blue, those are also correct, but there is a difference between light and pigments. Pigments are subtractive, meaning that if you mix two colors, the light that each absorbs (doesn't reflect back to the eye) combines, which is why when you combine colors, you tend to get darker colors. Light, on the other hand, is additive. Simply put, if I shine a red light onto a blank wall and I also shine a green light onto the same blank wall, the resulting color I will see will be yellow (assuming a white wall that reflects all of my light anyway). BTW, that is also why the sheep starts out black - the absence of color.

Now, I personally feel that using additive colors doesn't really make sense and that they should have used subtractive colors that more people are familiar with since the sheep is a physical object. As a computer programmer, we use additive to set the color of pixels on the screen. But a sheep isn't really a source of light. Of course, since he is spitting light from his mouth, perhaps this is what the designers had in mind.

Still, if you are concerned about not learning colors correctly, put those fears aside, the colors are indeed correct.

As for the game itself, it's is okay.
