How to Play Our Next Color Patterns Game

When the game starts, the player will see a quick introduction to how to play. Click or tap the arrow button to start playing.

The 6th icon is grayed out and the player needs to select which color this icon should be. Select the colored brush at the bottom of the game.

Drag the colored brush and drop it onto the gray icon. If correct, you’ll see a successful message and move on to a new series.

If the player is wrong, however, they’ll lose one of their lives. The number of lives they have is represented by the love hearts at the top right. If they lose all of these hearts, the game will end.

Each time the player correctly completes a pattern, they’ll win a small star at the top left of the screen
