Rated 2.5 / 5 stars

bad it was easy i do not know the contrasting color for no color so i keep hiting space bar and beat the game.

thePalindrome responds:

Yeah, you've got a point, but in that case, why not use the scroll wheel?


Rated 1 / 5 stars

Sorry, but this was shockingly bad.

The Good:
+The concept was interesting, I'll give you that.

The Bad:
- Graphics are terrible, the "bullets" don't even shoot out of the gun and when you aim left the gun is upside down? lol.
- It was extremely easy. I'm colorblind so I just spammed shift and left mouse key to kill everything. I didn't die once.
- Level design was very poor. It didn't offer a challenge at all and level 6 wasn't even a level!

Thanks for the medal.

Verdict: 1/5, 2/10

thePalindrome responds:

Heh, at least you stuck till the end!

I know there are issues with the graphics, sorry about that!
I couldn't figure out how to make the game difficult while still making it easy to kill stuff!
I'm not a very good level designer, as you can tell.

You are welcome :P

I think this game was awesome! the only bad thing is only 1 metal.

thePalindrome responds:

I plan on adding a few more medals, I just want to make sure it's as awesome as possible!

Ten levels was a bit too long for this game. You also move slow in this game. If you can increase the speed and/or add a double jump, that would be helpful. The medals work, and I earned them all. Will there be a sequel?

thePalindrome responds:

In order:
1. There'll be 15 levels, including a boss, so keep an eye out
2. I might add a powerup for speed so that I don't have to re-make the levels
3. a double-jump would be kind of cool
4. I don't think that Color Man is even worth a sequel, but wait until it is a little more fleshed out, then you can decide

Thanks for the feedback!

Nice game but could be improved. By making the character can double jump or able to run even have more guns, a pause button and more medals such as killing a certain colored enemy or getting killed by one.
3/5 :D

thePalindrome responds:

A more intuitive pause function would be nice, I plan on expanding the game by a ton, so stay tuned!
