Glow Artisan (DSiWare) Review

Glow Artisan is a colourful puzzle game from DSiWare for 500 points.
I had some fun with this game, so it's not that bad. The graphics are pretty much colourful neon squares and you got to make the bottom screen match the squares on the top screen. Its really hard to explain, but it's like paint, you get 3 main colours: red, blue & yellow. You can mix them up by moving the red over the yellow and making orange but you can only do that on the grid. There are easy ones at the beginning but after 2 or 3 it gets very difficult and you're thinking "How in the world of **** can this be done?" Luckily there is a button in which the puzzle can be finished for you. Controls are all touch based and work nicely. There is also a mode where you can make your own puzzle. Take a picture with the DSi camera and BAM! You have you're own puzzle to let your friends deal with. This game is fun for puzzle fans but this is a little too much considering I like puzzle games but not difficult puzzle games. This one is a little too challenging, but it's nice graphics, good controls & mind-bending puzzles are good for only those who LOVE puzzle games and like a challenge. I think there needs to be some other genres in the DSi Shop other than mostly puzzle and express titles Nintendo. Do something about that. Until some other genres come in, I'm giving Glow Artisan for the DSi a 6.5 out of 10.
