Review red

Brandon Girod
8.8Excellent
Forces you to think outside of the box, fair hint system
The color palate can grate on the nerves
People sometimes say red is the color of anger, fire and danger. In this case, Red for Android is simply the name of the game, though it’s a puzzle game that may make you feel some of those negative emotions if you are easily upset by puzzle games.
Red isn’t your typical puzzle game, though. You aren’t matching numbers, you’re not matching anything really. Or are you? This isn’t a straightforward game. In each level, you’re presented with the number of the level you’re on and the stage. The stage can be anything, though. Sometimes it’ll just be circles and each circle will react - or not - depending on how and when you touch it.
This is a game that has you thinking outside of the box rather than trying to perfect a strategy. It rewards experimentation rather than efficiency. And honestly, I find it rather comforting, outside of the game’s obvious color palate. It’s a puzzle game I think I could easily find myself sitting down with and figuring out a few levels while I wait in line to order food or just need to take a quick break. The game features a hint system, too, in case you get stuck. And you don’t have to pay for it, either. Instead, you can watch a video ad and be on your way.
Red is a great puzzle game that truly makes you think in a fun and engaging way. None of the mechanics are arcadified in a way many other mobile puzzle games are these days.
