ANOTHER POSSIBLE FIX: In internet explorer go to Tools>Internet Options>Security tab>Click Trusted Sites>Click the "sites" button and add to the list. Make sure require server verification in unchecked and make sure the enable protected mode button is uncheck as well in the trusted sites section. I have no way to verify this but it seems viable. Let me know if it works.

If that doesn't work try playing the game in Popup mode.

FIRST: THANKS to Tom Fulp for setting up the Power of Three event last summer.
SECOND: If you get stuck watch the video walkthroughs accessable through the in game menu.
THIRD: In the boss fight, watch for the blue target... and prehaps use your blue ability where it is pointing...
FOURTH:If the game runs slow for you right click and lower the quality settings until the game runs at normal speed.

Primary has been a long project for FrozenFire and me, we started this back in July... TONS of work have gone into this game and we hope you like it as much as we do.

Primary is about Roy, a super soldier in the land of the HUEman (get it? Ya we are lame.), who must climb to the top of Prizim tower to try to find a way to close the portal that is allowing horrible black goopy creatures into his world.

NOTE: You can play with an x-box controller with an emulator like Xpadder, I am told this also fixes the "Sticky Keys" bug. The elevator menu is able to be controlled with the keyboard as soon as the game has saved so you don't have to use the mouse if you don't want to.

If you are interested in learning more about the process of making Primary you can read my post mortum of sorts here:

=Spoiler alert= Describes end boss

My oh my such a great game, where to start?

Let's start with the gameplay. Incredibly unique and terribly addicting. Swapping colors to match platforms and to unleash certain abilities was very fun and was also a nice original touch. The background music was very fitting to a platform game, especially one inside a huge tower, but it did get tedious. The animation was nicely done and the level design got slightly harder and harder until eventually they were damn hard. 26-29 took me the longest to complete and man was it a relief to finish those.

Now, this game does deserve a solid 9 points in my opinion, but it lacks in so many areas. If you improved a few things I'd gladly give this a 10. First off the control scheme. It was just plain awkward to use a,s,d,w and r combined with left click and shift. You really need to fix the control scheme, despite saying in the author's area that you don't plan to. It really is terribly hard to control your character. Also, I had severe lag. I play lots of games here on Newgrounds and never get any lag at all and I lagged hard on this game, especially toward the end. I'm not sure if my connection is having a bad day or if it's the game, but I though I'd mention it.

Also, the boss battles. C'mon man, seriously? The same boss three times? With the same way to kill him? Needless to say the end boss was extremely disappointing and easy. Still a nice strategy boss, the first time, but it got old doing it twice more.

Overall this game was amazing in a lot of aspects. Fun platform game that occupied several hours of my time with fun gameplay and challenging levels.

Good animation
Catchy music
Fun levels
Longish game
Controller compatible

- points
Same boss 3 times
Bad control scheme (in my opinion)
I had lag, may not be for everyone

I'm glad you submitted this, this was a blast.
Good luck on your future projects.

Great game, but...

I love the gameplay, art, plot and music... but I absolutely can't wall-jump effectively, at least not with the control combination.
If there was an alternate o0ne for the number keys, all would be okay.

Abominable controls, unoriginal gameplay, the first boss battle makes no sense (why does him hitting an iceblock make him vulnerable?), an unfun boring game. The only positive thing I can say about it is that I like the pun "Hueman".

Quite a refined speciman.

A really good and refreshing game. Excellent gameplay, and the controls weren't that bad actually - you might however considering "doubling" the control set, so it is possible to steer with both arrows and WSAD.
