I can't think of a snazzy title

So I'll just start typing here :D I loved this game! (stated for those that couldn't read the 10) It reminds me a bit of Chip's Challenge (except easier). There's something to be said for an easy game. The graphics are good, the music is sweet, the controls are a-okay. I love the theory behind the game! It amused me to no end changing colours. It's quite a bit like Shift.

I can see a lot of people are wanting a harder version. Personally, I liked being able to run through this in, like, twenty minutes. It was relaxing, it made me laugh, and it was just hard enough to make me feel pretty good when I got through a level. Some of the levels were so awesome I went back and played them again, just for the lulz. Imo, this level of difficulty is great.

If you wanted to make a harder difficulty, I would recommend removing the arrows and making it so that you can touch all the colours at the beginning of the level. So then you have no idea where you're going and you don't know which colour you need. Of course, then you'll get complaints about it being too hard, I suppose...you know what? Whatevs.

bad ass

oh my god

oh my god,man,this game is awesome,you got very intelligence to create this thirty levels,the best is the level 30,because is very hard,good luck for your jobs in newgrounds!

Haha Very Creative

I liked the part when you beat it where it says "Hey dude, remember that time you beat me that was totally sweet, keep it up!". Fun to play and somewhat challenging. I beat it in around 20 minutes. I could go for some more, though.
