Coloricks is an addictive puzzle game that fuses gameplay from the classic video games Klax, Brick Breaker and Bejeweled.
In Coloricks you play a little green man who must remove all the bricks above him by making groups of five or more matching-colored bricks. You hit the fire button to drop the brick or column of same-colored bricks directly above you. Then use the scroll wheel to move the alien left and right and hit fire to send the bricks shooting above you. If a group of five or more conjoining bricks is made, the bricks disappear and you get some juicy points.
Coloricks is made more challenging by the fact that all the bricks drop a level after a set time limit. This means you're constantly playing against the clock to make sure all those bricks don't end up crushing you! To help you in your quest, Coloricks includes a few fun power-ups that can be used to explode bricks in various ways.
The graphics in Coloricks are very neat and colorful. The explosion sound effects are pretty cool too, although there is no in-game music.
Coloricks is easy to pick up and play and it's great fun for a while. It does get a bit repetitive, though.
