Blup: A Minimalistic Puzzle Game From The Makers Of Whale Trail



The makers of Whale Trail, a popular iOS game where you fly a whale through a psychedelic skyline, have a new game out in the App Store. It’s called Blup, a new puzzler that aims to be an “addictive conundrum of coloration.”

iPhone games like Letterpress have started setting the trend of more flat, squared interface aesthetics. It’s something Apple is expected to do in iOS 7. Blup falls right into that category, and it looks pretty interesting.

Here’s how you play:

– Tap a tile to start a pulse of colour, which spreads outwards.
– Colour all tiles in as few pulses as possible.
– Game-changing “trick” tiles alter your pulse’s path, so think ahead to succeed!

Gameplay looks a little more complicated than apps like Letterpress. Luckily, there’s a handy tutorial when you first open the app. There’s also iCloud and Game Center to sync progress between devices and access leaderboards.

Blup is available for free in the App Store. £1.49 unlocks all of the levels. Check out the creators’ blog for a detailed look at how the game was made.
