Released by Loomus Games, Prismatica is hex-based puzzler that began on desktop systems, and has now been ported over to mobile. In an interesting twist, the game focuses on blending colors to set up the board that requires solving. The game starts with primary colors (red, blue, or yellow) with each set of hexes being comprised of one.
Where the groups of hexes overlap, the secondary colors emerge (red and yellow would cause orange to appear where they two primaries overlap). Then, the groups of hexes are "spun" on their respective axes, causing the secondary colored hexes to be shifted around, becoming out of place and lie between the wrong primary colors. The player needs to "unwind" them back to their logical positions.
