What I liked I like how clean and professional Blendamaze is. The game is very clean and has crisp graphics that look good on the iPhone's retina screen. This puzzler is very simple and fun for anyone to pick up and play. It is also educational because the colors mix just like how paint mixes in real life! So for young children, it will teach how to create all kinds of color combinations with paint. There are also a good amount of stages and achievements. My favorite this is how the ball drags paint along on the canvas!
Improvements The overall style of the game is very old fashioned and not exciting. There could be a better variety of canvases, instead of just wood. The controls seem a bit sloppy because the ball will fly across the screen when the iPhone is slightly tilted. Also, the paint will cover the tutorial text, making it difficult to read. There is a graphic of a finger touching the screen that looks more like an icon for wireless communication. The "just paint" mode is difficult to paint because there are puddles everywhere. No music?
General review Blendamaze is a unique puzzle game where the user moves a ball into puddles of paint by tilting the iPhone. To complete the stage, the ball must be the required color. This will sometimes involve mixing multiple colors.

It is a very simple game that anyone can pick up and play on the go. I recommend this to kids because it teaches about mixing colors and will be helpful for art classes.
