LetterMeister: new word puzzle game

Dear all,

I'd like to invite word puzzle addicts to check out my new game, LetterMeister, released on the App Store today. )I'll also be posting a couple of codes on the code sharing forum.)



I would welcome any feedback for future updates and have also set up a facebook page for that purpose.

Enjoy!

Neil

I downloaded the game with one of your free codes. Thanks. It's a great game. My one complaint is the highlight colors that you use. I red green colorblind and I have a difficult time distinguishing between the 2 colors. A more saturated hue or using something in the blue family would be helpful. Thanks again.

Colour recommendations?

Hi, that's a really interesting point that I confess I hadn't considered. And obviously, colour selection is something that could easily be addressed in an update.

Do you have any recommendations for which colours to use/avoid?

Like I said, I'm red / green colorblind, which is the most common type. I can see both red and green, although I have difficulty telling them apart if they aren't really saturated colors. Blue is a color that I see very well. I think if your yellow and green were darker (more saturated) I could see them better.

Some games that I play have a color blind mode where the items get a graphic or different shape so they are more distinguishable.

There are some color blind apps out for the iPhone. I have one (currently not installed, so I don't know it's name) that will take a photo and process it so it appears to everyone as it would to some one with that particular color blindness. Something like this might help.

I appreciate your willingness to address this. Thanks.

Thanks for the info -- I'll have a look out for apps of the type you mention and do a bit of research. If by any chance you do manage to get the name of this one that you think is more realistic, then do post it -- I'd be interested in any recommendations! N

It looks like the color vision camera that I have is "Chromatic Vision Simulator". It looks like it's free. I hope it helps.

There is also a free app called Colored Eye. It seems to have a lot of really good info, including the best colors to be using.

Had a look

Many thanks for this -- I had a look at the app through CVS. Is one of the problems also that the red colour that indicates a wrong letter merges into the general (yellow) background of the squares?

I have a hard time distinguishing which is which, I click a letter to see if I can move it, and go from there.

Update with brighter colours

I just wanted to mention that an update to the game is now in review and includes slightly brighter colours in the "normal" colour scheme, plus the option to choose a "vivid" colour scheme similar to that pictured above.

In the meantime, for anybody else reading this thread, LetterMeister is currently free for a promotional period as Im still trying to garner a few more reviews/ratings. So if anybody else would like to download and take a look, the more the merrier!!
