Color Switch is a simple yet innovative puzzle game which challenges you to guide a ball to the end of a level. Sounds easy? Well, you're only able to pass through obstacles that match the colour of your own.

It's tricky, and there are a ton of different game modes to get used to so we figured we should provide a few brief pointers to help you adjust to these new gameplay styles.


As per the name, your approach should be very similar to the standard mode. If you’re still having trouble wrapping your head around it, you can always flip your phone upside down which makes it almost identical, but note that the ball does seem to move slightly faster than usual.


Here, it’s simply a case of beating the computer AI. Ideally, you should aim to pass through each obstacle during their first rotation, but mimicking your opponent but blazing past it at the very end is another viable tactic.


Everything is pitch black in cave mode except for the small radius around your ball that provides some illumination. We'd advise you to move even slower than usual, as it’s easy for obstacles to catch you out from the darkness.

Color Swap

In color swap mode, your ball changes colour periodically so, the second you see the screen start to pulse, it's best to simply wait for the colour change before moving on.

Color Fly

Here, the ball moves from left to right, with the extra space at the top and bottom of the screen allowing for more time to react, so you should be fine as long as you pre-empt your next moves in time.


Gravity introduces arrow switches that change the direction your ball moves. The game leaves a lot of space around these arrow switches, so just take your time and you'll be fine.


Tapping during split mode splits the ball into two, with both pieces moving outwards from the centre. An especially useful tip to remember her, is that it takes a full three taps to move the balls from the centre to the edge of the screen.
