Released by Gribb Games, Flood GRIBB is a simple puzzler that's now out for Android. In this game, players are tasked with changing the colors on a grid, starting from a variety of colors, and working your way toward uniformity. Players begin the game with a tutorial, and from there the board expands as players progress through the levels, with the same going for the number of colors on the board.
The board is always in an even numbered grid, such as 5x5 with four colors, then 5x5 with an additional color, then eventually 6x6, and continuing to expand both the size of the board, as well as the number of colors. Color flipping on a given board always begins in the upper left hand corner, with a couple of tiles of the same color, and surrounded by tiles of different colors. Across the bottom of the screen is an array of colors, where players tap on one to flip the "active" tiles to a color that matches one or more of the surrounding colors. So, were I to start with a pair of red tiles that had one or more green tiles adjacent to it, I would flip the red ones to green, thus now creating a larger, contiguous collection of green ones.
From there, I'd look at colors adjacent to my green collection, and flip the green to a new matching color, to grow this colored bloc, until eventually I've made the board monochromatic. The game is designed to be endless, so players can continue their game as long as the game is open. Unfortunately, there didn't appear to be any active save state, so players should keep that in mind.
Flood GRIBB is available from Google Play for free. The game does include occasional interstitial ads as well. Interested players can check out the trailer below to see more of the game in action.
