    "I've used this a lot to try out my colors, I've been doing a lot of color theory lately and this really helps you figure out things about colors that you may have never known. Blending a lot of different colors and making cool and crisp new ones is always exciting! It's super fun and I could do it all day if left to my own devices."

    "The game itself is great. I've spent tons of time playing it, and it is really enjoyable. Unfortunately, the developers have recently doubled down on the advertisements to the point of obnoxiousness. If you don't mind getting ads literally every 5 minutes, you will probably enjoy the game. For me though, I can't stand it anymore."
