Telepaint – Apple’s Free iTunes App of the Week

This week’s free app is puzzler Telepaint. Normally it’s $3, but you can get it free from iTunes until Thursday, June 29nd.

What Is It?

This game is your typical puzzler with a few twists. The theme is retro, 8-bit style graphics. Your goal is to unite your character, the paint bucket, with a paint brush. Matching portals move you through the game to get keys and unlock your companion.

The puzzles are all about picking the right portal combinations so the bucket can avoid obstacles and get to the keys.  t looks like a platformer, but it’s definitely a puzzle game. Each level goes pretty fast if you don’t figure out the right combination.  The free version includes 20 levels. An in-app purchase unlocks extra levels.

Who Is It Good For?

Don’t let the cute graphics fool you; this is a game for older kids and adults.  You’ll need puzzle solving skills to move past each level.  It plays more like Pool:  anticipating moves and outcomes. If you guess wrong, the level resets.

Should You Download It?

The game takes up only 115MB.  I’m keeping it because it’s a quick distraction, but I am muting the volume because the music gets annoying.  Owners of older devices, such as an iPhone 5 might not be able to run the game.  I had no problems on my iPhone SE, but it didn’t run on my iPad Air 2. The developer says a fix is on the way.
