To all the idiots out there...

To all of you who think green shouldn't be up there and don't understand the physics of the game, the colors are based on the primary colors of light rather than those of pigment.

Overall, I found the game to be quite captivating. I've seen many puzzle games in the portal lately that involve a shifting atmosphere and unlike some of these other submissions, this one proved to be interesting without being unreasonably difficult. Subtlety appears to be the key; Sometimes it appears to me as if certain programmers are under the impression that the harder the game, the higher the overall quality. Not the case, as proved by this fun little ditty indeed.
As well, the music proved to supplement the game suitably with its mellow tones, matching the vivid colors like an appropriate case of Synesthesia.
I may be just imagining things but I did leave my comp. alone for some time ( a few hours) and I think that I may have somehow jumped forward a few levels. I do hope I don't sound unbearably foolish, but I firmly believe that I got from level 25 to 28 by some kind of bug; You may want to check what happens when you leave the program idle on each level for a lengthy bit.
Other than that discrepancy, the game is great fun. Well done then-
