I'm not sure how to explain Color Confusion. Well, that's not entirely true. I'm just not sure how to describe the frustration you'll feel as you realize learning the basic colors (red, yellow, blue) won't help you at all in this game. Oh, well.
Color Confusion has a simple idea: mix cans of paint to create the colors that need to be made. Easy description, mind-blowingly difficult concept (at times).
You get a limited number of "mixes" per level, and if you run out of mixes before you've discovered how to make all the colors, you lose. Fortunately, you can then choose to be shown what colors at your disposal you needed to mix, and (one would assume) learn.
If you find yourself not liking the colors you were dealt, the bottom right-hand corner of the screen has a "remix" button. We're not talking dance party, dubstep remix, just a "have some new colors" remix. As far as I can tell, you get unlimited remixes, so don't be afraid to grab some colors you know how to create.
You're timed on how fast you complete a level, so there's some incentive to not completely lollygag. As you advance through the levels, more and more colors need to be mixed at a time, but the game compensates by upping your mix count to balance things out.
Overall, Color Confusion is definitely for those who want a serious challenge, but not for the faint of heart. There's both a free version and a paid version on the Market, but the paid version only sets you back one greenback (standard fare 'round these parts), so don't hesitate to show your support if it's something you enjoy.
