a new bontegame: red [mobile]

I sort of hinted at it at the end of my YELLOW game, there was going to be a reddish continuation... well... here it is, I'm proud to present you today my latest game RED! Once again it's a free mobile puzzle game and it is indeed very red this time. The goal is to make the screen red in each of the 50 levels and each level has its own logic.
It's a 100% free app, so what are you waiting for? Get it now for your iPhone/iPad or Android phone/tablet by clicking your favourite app store below:



The game is free but if you want to support my game making there is a 'premium unlock' in-app purchase which also removes the ads you see when you ask for hints.
Let me know what you think about the game in the comments! Enjoy my new game, spread the word and happy puzzling!
Oh and I also have a bit of exciting news about YELLOW: the game has just been picked by Google as a finalist for the Google Play Indie Games contest! So London and the Saatchi Gallery will turn a bit yellow next month, you can read all about it and check the other nominees here.
