How to Play

Click on a square. It will change color, as will its neighbors. Keep clicking until all the squares are white.

The 'easy' level is quite easy and is really just to teach the rules. The harder levels have more squares and more colors.

All the games are winnable.

You can undo a move by repeating it until it returns to its original color.

How to Win

There are countless ways to win each game. You don't have to find the 'right' set of moves, just one that works. For example, if you have a sequence of moves that clears the puzzle, you make those moves in any order and it will still work.

The general strategy is to simplify the grid until you get to one of a few simple patterns that you know how to clear. You will not always get to the same simple pattern, you will have to learn to clear a few different ones.

For example:

  1. Start at the second row from the top and clear the top row.
  2. Work your way down until everything but the bottom row is clear.
  3. Clear one or two squares on the ends of the bottom row. This will make some squares in the row above it colored.
  4. Repeat the process, working up this time.
  5. After a few repetitions of this, the pattern will become symmetrical, and if you keep it up you will be able to get a single colored square in the center of the puzzle. How you get rid of that is your problem.


I don't have any trouble with the 'hard' puzzles, but I can't win the 'abandon hope' level.
