This concept is unique, interesting, and innovative. It puts a twist on "color" gaming with simple but complicated puzzles. The physics and mechanics along with obstacles and rules of the game keep you on your toes, with a big garuntee of seeing and spilling Color man's (my name for him) sparkly and colorful guts moving through space. Without a doubt, this is a game that is worth a few plays.

Best puzzler for ages!

I don't usually get on with flash puzzlers and the themes of colours and retro have both been used a lot recently.
But this game is awesome!
The game is very playable and fast paced unlike many puzzlers.
You will need quick reflexes as well as your thinking cap on.
Maybe it's a little short so there is plenty of room for a sequel.
I think a series of these could go big so I suggest to the developer trying to get major sponsors next time.
Level 29 has the potential to be a whole different kind of game.
I love the element of having to run away from approaching enemies and it knocks the game's pace up a notch yet again.
I would suggest more of these type of levels, but longer and more complex ones.
Well programmed!

good game

its a good game overall, but im stuck on level 22, that one is difficult, it requires timing, which is good
originally i thought you were just mistaken on the primary colors (since i was thinking yellow instead of green which is also true,), but then i remembered that was with paint and this is with light, so yeah, lolz, fail i guess
