GRADIENTS is a coloring puzzle flash game for social media platforms VKontakte and Odnoklassniki. The main character is Mr. Brush, who paints the fence like Tom Sawyer.
The essence of the game is solving a logic puzzle and putting together a gradient out of many monochromatic lines of certain shades. On the playing field, there are circles different in color. The player is supposed to put them in a certain sequence.
The player can set the cell type as: • blocking; • regular color.
The player removes the cells that interfere with the move. Each move should be carefully thought out: the time is noted, and if the player loses, he starts the level again.
For passing the level, the player is awarded points and stars. The maximum number of stars for 1 completed level is 3.
