Color Sheep blasts into the Windows Phone Store

Color Sheep, an interesting arcade game that has been available on iOS and Android, has just released on Windows Phone. You play as Sir Woolson, responsible for preventing vicious wolves from stealing life and color from the world. It’s an easy game at first, but don’t get too comfortable. It gets a lot harder.

Head past the break to watch our gameplay video.

Players change Woolson’s color to match oncoming wolves by mixing different intensities of red, green, and blue light. Tap on Woolson to blast out a laser.

There are over twenty color combinations to master. The main colors are red, green, and blue. If there’s a bright red wolf coming, hold the bright button on the right and the red color on the left. Sounds easy, but more complicated color get introduced in higher levels. For example, you need to hold the bright button on the right, while swiping red to blue on the left to get Magenta. For Orange, you need to combine bright red and dark green.

The color combinations can be a little confusing because they’re not based on the three primary colors we learned in school: red, yellow, and blue. It’s already embedded in our heads than combining red and yellow creates orange. That’s not the case in Color Sheep. You get used to it after a few rounds, though.

The wolves sometimes drop magical items. Tap to collect for use. Some these items slow down the wolves while some get rid of them quickly if they get too close. The visual effects look great.

It only requires one wolf to hit Woolson to end the game. You have to start over from the beginning if you want to keep playing.

Color Sheep costs 99 cents at the Windows Phone Store. There’s no free trial available in the initial version, but we think it’s worth the price. Check it out and let us know what you think!
