ANOTHER POSSIBLE FIX: In internet explorer go to Tools>Internet Options>Security tab>Click Trusted Sites>Click the "sites" button and add Newgrounds.com 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:

///// BUG FIXES:
Walking Tall medal fix.


Runs slow, unresponsive controls.

The game itself has a nice concept, but for me it's spoiled by a few things.

First, the game runs rather slowly for me--even on low quality it feels like the character is hopping along on a low-gravity moon walk. This may just be a computer issue on my part, but as the game runs equally slow on high quality as compared to low, I thought it was worth mentioning.

Second, the level timers start way too soon, beginning when the level first opens and not when control is handed off to the player. Due to the first complaint, on average fifteen seconds have passed before I can even start playing the level, sometimes even as many as thirty. Not that I had a chance to begin with, but this does put a bit of a cramp in my chances of ever successfully speedrunning a level.

Third, the controls are slightly unresponsive. In particular, manipulating anything with the 'R' key is impossible to do on a back-to-back basis. For instance, I cannot flip side-by-side switches one after the other. I have to back off of the interaction area before the R key is usable again. Also, hanging onto the edges of walls is somewhat unresponsive as well, allowing the character to fall down a bit before he ever is given the chance to grab on.

Overall, a decent platformer, but it still needs the kinks worked out.

Great! but...

kinda slow while playing, the loading takes a while, you may have to find a way to reduce the amount of stuff going on at one time, or make the jumping less moon-like I feel as if he belongs there than in our gravity, the height is ok just its too slow motion, makes you feel like your trudging along rather than epic color changing adventures.

i got every medal except,

the time trials are really seemingly impossible. the 9 seconds or so that it takes for my guy to get out of the elevator really makes it hard is this just me or should the clock start when the doors close? also the spinning color wheel idea is cool but animating it slows game play, it should be more instantaneous so you can change quickly through the colors. there is a certain amount of lag that happens from the spinning of the wheel, maybe instead of a wheel on the next one make it "J K L + I" to do secondary colors and lay them out in boxes. other than that super addicting great work guys.

Nice game.

I love it. You made a very good platformer with puzzle solving action. You deserve to be awarded for this creation.

awesome game and i have an idea for a sequel

in the sequel (if there will be one ) you can add in the secondary colors giving a total of 6 new colors. As well you can mix colors together to use special abilities

Glad you like the game, we are not currently working on a sequel yet but we were more than likely going to head in the direction of secondary colors, Perhaps complimentary...
