Freeware statusgratis Chromatic Puzzle
Q - Why is this a freeware game now?
A - The original author of ChromaticPuzzle, Valerio, is no longer part of its development, after selling his assets to Cyna Games. The new owner decided to make the game freely available partly because he was unable to figure out how the game is played.
Yes, he's a little slow. Or maybe it's just because he just hasn't had time to go through the game's help files and preferred to focus on his other two games. That will be the official answer, then.
The author would warmly appreciate that you do not tell anyone the unofficial reason. He still has friends who believe he's smart just because he made Kyodai Mahjongg all by himself. (The fools.)
ChromaticPuzzle is a very unique puzzle game, totally different from any other game of the kind. The peculiarity of ChromaticPuzzle is that each "tile" is initially broken down into three "plates" of different color (red, green and blue). Reassembling these plates into tiles and rearranging the resulting tiles into the original image is the purpose of the game.
If it sounds like a rather minor difference, do try a game and you will quickly change your mind. ChromaticPuzzle requires lots of patience and skill and each game will keep you busy for many hours, or even days if you choose to play one of the largest puzzles with a huge number of tiles.
ChromaticPuzzle is powered by two engines (graphical and logical) that are efficient, robust and quite sophisticated. They provide excellent graphics and animation.
ChromaticPuzzle can generate a million billion different shuffles for each puzzle, which means that if you could play a game every second, twenty-four hours a day, you could expect to replay the same game after 33 million years or so!
