About This Game

Designed around the RBG colour scheme, Fake Colours is a 3D cube rolling puzzle game in which the player must move three coloured blocks to their corresponding target squares. Don't be fooled by the simple, yet beautiful art in the game, Fake Colours is all about the puzzles. Game Blocks are able to roll on top of each other but are unable to roll onto tiles that are not their respective colours. The opening 10 levels won't take you too long to get through and learn, but don't be fooled into thinking this game is short or easy. The remaining 20 levels will take you hours and many cases days to complete. These puzzles grow in difficulty as the game progresses and later includes mini-coloured cubes that change the original cube’s colour once it moves through the mini-cube. Although simple to learn, Fake Colours is quickly becoming one of the most memorable puzzle games since Tetris. The ambient music and excellent vibrant graphics help create the foundation that makes Fake Colours addicting and fun!

I won this game on steamgift. The devs offered 100 000 copy to the community, very nice move from Forthright Entertainment.

Nice puzzle game using some basic concept but where it can become very complex to solve some of the puzzle.

It's all about colored block. You have usually 3 moving block of differents colors (Red, Blue and Green) The moving block can only move to another square of the same color or the white square where every color can move. Some of the tile can change the color of the block that move in it. So it add to the challenge even more. You have to do it with a minimal number of move to get the 100% completion on every puzzle.

Some of the puzzle require you to think every move properly, or you can be stuck and need to restart the puzzle if you move to the wrong place. It add some challenge to the difficulty of the game in a nice way.

The only thing I don't like is that you can't zoom out, some of the puzzle are quite large and you don't see everything. This can become REALLY annoying, it add some dificlty to a game already difficult for no obvious reasons. Seriously to plan some of the puzzle accordingly you have to plan many move ahead. This is the main "feature" of the game and it don't allow you to have a good overall view of the puzzle. Maybe it's on purpose, if it is, then it's a bad choice from the devs if you want my opinion.

In the overall, this is a game that will force you to think alot. If you like very challenging puzzles to test your own limits, it's the game you want to try. It start very easy to show you the basic control of the game, but become more and more challenging at every new puzzle.

1) I won this game on SteamGifts
2) I both love and hate these games


About 2 1/2 hours in I’ve got the 1st 18 levels down and just needed a break or else I was going to try to track down the level designed and hurt them (Just joking …. well kinda)

This is not an original game, there are others on steam, but it is a nice balance of casual & addictive with the difficulty developing with each level.

Expect to blow through the 1st 6 levels fairly fast (yes I did get stumped at one point) but after that you’ll really have to start giving some thought into the puzzles.

There have been a few levels so far that are just annoying and I’m not sure if the designer was just trying to be a twit or ran out of good ideas but overall they do build nicely on each other.

If you like puzzle games give it a try, you’ll easily get a few hours out of the game.

1¢ Review
Pro:
Casual – you can pick it up and play 1 or 2 levels and come back
Difficult – but in a good way
Runs on low level hardware

Con:
Difficulty does rap up quickly
No hint system (and you’re going to need it)
Can’t zoom out
No undo

Push:
Can’t replace the colors
Not many options
No workshop – that could be a bit evil ;-)
Not on Mac or Linux
Other than the thinking time it’s relatively short … say 2 min or so per level x 30 levels

Overall:
5 +1 casual fun +1difficulty +1 low system specs +1 relatively inexpensive -1 difficulty - level design issues = 8/10

Won a key for this game on the Steam Gifts website, but this is an unbiased review.

If you're a casual gamer and you enjoy puzzle games you will probably enjoy this game. At times it can be rather challenging and makes you think about the solution. The presentation of the game is not amazing and it's not "edge of your seat" exciting, but if you're looking for a distraction for an hour or two, I can recommend this game.

Got the game thanks to the Devs on SG. No referal links were involved.

Its one of those puzzle games, simple but not dumb. I have been playing the tutorial, so I don't know how difficult the levels can be.

PROS: Slow paced puzzle game. You need to interact with some cubes and colours. No rush, no pressure.
CONS: No spanish included (for some people can be a problem), super extremely blurry texts and menus. Game looks fine, the rest its real blurry.

I recommend this game if you like this kind of puzzle games. It also works perfect on my ♥♥♥♥♥♥ laptop, wich is very nice, personally speaking.

This is a very neat looking puzzle game. A great soundtrack to back up all the colorful blocks! Requires quite a bit strategy and eliminates the "trial and error" aspect of most puzzle games, unless you don't mind starting levels over and over again.

There's nothing more to this game than simply getting the three colored blocks to their destinations. There's a few things that make certain parts of a level to be a hindrance, but that's what makes it a puzzle game and what will make you strategize before you make moves. 30 levels of this seems appropriate too, not too many but not too few. As of this review I am on level 10 which is already considerably difficult (for me at least).

A good title for anyone looking for a new style of a puzzle game. Oh and colors.

This game is surprisingly good.
It's actually challenging, further levels can't be beaten easily. The graphics is fine, such simple game doesn't need a better graphics.

But there's also a room for improvement:
- Camera position is pretty annoying - in further levels it is hard to find a good position to see everything that is needed. Sometimes movable blocks are out of vision.
- Camera buttons - why E and R? If moving by WSAD then (in my opinion) way better would be Q for turning left and E for turning right.
- Undo button - it would be truly helpful

I like the game very much after all and I recommend it for people who also like simple yet challenging puzzle games.

The game is pretty straightforward, you know what's going on after a minute or two.
The camera is pretty dumb, too much hassle to control it, simply having the camera looking from the top would be good enough.
Got it for free, can't ask for too much I guess hahaha

Pros :
  • There are 30 puzzles and steadily increased in difficulty. Very challenging after level 15.
  • Simple and Unique gameplay.
  • UI is nice, simple and easy to understand.
  • Have trading cards and easy 100% achievement completion. Basically you just have to finish all the puzzles. I hope the dev will not add more puzzles followed by more achievements.
  • There's a nice guide for puzzle solution in the community guide, if you having trouble with the puzzles.

Cons :
  • Buttons is not accessible by keyboard, only mouse can press them. It sucks to play the puzzle with keyboard and need to reach mouse everytime the puzzle done or need a reset. CMIIW.
  • Camera rotation is fixed by only 4 angles. Would be better if we can rotate camera more freely. And the puzzle is just a small board, I think it'll better if the camera focus on the board instead of selected block.
  • Some animations can't be skipped. e.g scoreboard calculation and board rotation everytime we start a puzzle. Though the rotation can be quickened by holding left click.

It's a simple, decent puzzle game. Gets progressively harder and most puzzles aren't too hard or too easy.

The Devs gave away 10,000 keys on Steam Gifts the other day, so I got this for free.
It's a fun game, worth a purchase.

5 Euros/Dollars are a bit too much for a game with no replay value, (too) bright colors and seizure inducing garbage. Not recommending.
