UPDATE: Get “super ccatch” http://eduardanton.com/games/super-ccatch/

Use your mouse or keyboard to catch the matching color. Reach the limit to increase your level, combo and points.

You will need a modern browser! I recommend Google Chrome.

* Move: Mouse / Arrow Keys (+Shift)
* Pause: Esc / P
* Restart: Enter
* Reset Highscore: R (in Highscore Room)

The game was made with Construct 2 in HTML5. You can even play it on your modern touch devices (though some problems my occur)! Press the 'Play in New Window' button to get fullscreen on small displays.

ccatch is my first game. Tell me your thoughts, so I can learn from that experience.

Decent game... I had two problems... First, for the mouse to register, I have to hold the mouse button down; if I'm not holding down the button, the movement doesn't register in the game... Second, the keyboard movement controls did not work at all (with or without the Shift button)... I think the arrow keys not working might be caused by the same thing that is making the mouse movement not register (because the arrow keys just scroll the main window for me)... Or it may be that I'm running IE 10 on a Windows 8 system... Other than those, the only thing I would say is the same thing about too many pieces of the wrong color in a row... Until next time...

I'm sorry to say that your browser is the problem. I recommend Firefox or Chrome for HTML5 games, since IE can't handle a lot of the new web stuff.

Thank you for the bug report, though.

Gameplay's pretty solid. Could use a bit of alteration of the randomization algorithm such that long strings without a piece of the player's color are avoided, just to make things less frustrating to the player. (Simple example: store the last 8 dropped pieces, and if at any time that list has no pieces of the player's current color just force the next drop to be that player's color instead of random.) Otherwise it's fun.

The scoring system makes no sense, though, but I guess that's not much of an issue without an online scoreboard. Still, it does provide serious progression counter-incentives for many players.

(Those of you who are trying to use the mouse instead of the keyboard: cursor controls losing focus when the mouse goes outside the screen have been a problem since Flash games first started. Just click onscreen and don't let go of the button, so the game won't lose focus if the mouse goes outside.)

First- Needs instructions, even with your goal being so obvious.
Second- THAT GODDAMN CURSOR KEEPS GOING OFF DA SCREEN DAT KILLS ME
Third- Moving with arrow keys is bugged

Hey Pedroooz. Thanks for playing!

At this point of html5 development unfortunately it's not possible to lock the cursor inside the iframe. This is not intended, but you can play it fairly well without that feature.

Please describe your arrow key bug. Mind, that you have to put the cursor outside of the iframe before using the keyboard.

Its okay. Maybe change the beginning description so it says something about color instead of just shapes. That would screw a color-blind person up so bad.
