Remarkably genteel in nature yet far from being just a pretty face comes RGB Express - a puzzle game all about delivering colors.
Learning how to play RGB Express will take you seconds. It’s simply a matter of drawing a route with your finger, then hitting the Play button and watching how things unfold. Early on, it’s very easy. Soon enough though, you’ll learn all about the caveats of RGB Express. For instance, you’ll often be guiding two trucks at any one time. If they clash, it’s game over, so you have to keep them away from each other. Similarly, the same piece of road can’t be used twice, unless it’s an intersection or you’re crossing over it. Plus, going to a building with the wrong colored box is a huge mistake.
They’re simple rules but they make all the difference in making RGB Express a quite challenging game as you progress. New elements aren’t introduced particularly quickly but they do come, such as switches and drawbridges that must be raised and lowered.
RGB Express soon gets quite complicated but never overwhelmingly so. You earn coins for completing levels so in theory you can jump ahead and unlock a harder package if you so wish, but RGB Express has a decent difficulty curve to follow anyhow. In-app purchases come in the form of buying hints, with five available initially for free, and the temptation is there but the game is never too pushy about it. Generally, if you spend some time thinking it through you can figure things out through experimentation.
Simply put, RGB Express is a well designed puzzle game. It’s one that’s sure to keep you keen for a while to come, as well as create many head scratching opportunities.
