What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Chrominance is a fast-paced arcade game that involves combining colors, so there is an educational component to it. The game can connect to both the OpenFeint and Game Center online networks, so parents should be aware of the ways in which those communities operate and disable them if they so desire. There is a two-player mode, but it is for players to compete on the same device (iPad only).

Is it any good?

CHROMINANCE starts off really easy, but will soon have you flicking colored paintballs like mad, trying to keep them away from each other until they're perfectly positioned over the right background -- which is when you want to have them crash and combine. The whole idea is to blend primary colors and form new secondary colors, but whenever you do so, you have to make sure it happens over a background space that matches the newly formed color. If a red and a yellow connect over a green area, you're out. It can become amazingly chaotic -- in the best possible way. And, if you're playing on an iPad, you can have even have more fun in a two-player match-up, flicking balls onto your opponent's side of the screen and forcing him to keep them in order while he flicks some of his balls at you. Bright and lively visuals add to the fun.
