Blendoku is a free[1] puzzle video game for Android and iOS mobile devices. In Blendoku, players are given a grid of squares, some with colors provided, some not. A palette of additional color tiles is provided. To clear a level, a player must "fill in" the empty squares from the palette in such a way as to create smooth sequences of colors both horizontally and vertically.[2] The game includes 475 levels, and additional levels are available as separate purchases.[3]

In July 2013, the creators of the game, responding to the criticism that the game was not accessible to the color-blind,[2] released a solution that would allow the game to be played by individuals with a variety of types of color-blindness.[4]

Kotaku.com called it "Unique and addictive".[1] Gamezebo called it "A brilliantly simple yet challengingly in-depth twist on classic Sudoku".[5]
