Like some others, I had a bit of trouble telling some of the colors apart from each other. Otherwise it was pretty easy to pick up and play, and the time element added a little more imperative to act qucikly--but not so much that you stress out over not being able to finish in time. Clever concept. I really liked it.

Glad you liked it! The tiles now default to having patterns on them in order to combat the color issue. I should have made this the default from the beginning. I hope it makes it easier for you to tell the tiles apart. Thanks for your comments!

My biggest complaint is that some colors are too similar to tell apart. Adding borders around the blocks to increase the color selection is a good idea, but it's hard to tell the difference between the borders. Adding more contrast to the borders would help a lot. I really liked the introduction, it really explained the concept and rules. The music is really fitting to the theme. A few more suggestions: make every level beatable, add an undo button for if we make the level impossible, tell us when there are no moves left, and make it so that when we fail a level, we start from the beginning of that level, with perhaps a point penalty. Overall, a good game that just needs a bit of polishing.

sheldy responds:

Thanks for your suggestions... I'll take it all into consideration. As for the colors, I tried my best to make them contrasting but its hard with so many colors. There is an option to overlay shapes on each tile (by clicking the button with the squiggle in the bottom right)... I've made this the default setting now. Perhaps that solves this issue? Thanks a lot for taking the time to give feedback!

A new advertisement after EVERY LEVEL? Screw that! Just how much of a PLEASURE do you think playing this is? Next thing you know you'll be asking for a paypal donation after every level.

sheldy responds:

Sorry about all the ads. I appreciate the feedback. I have significantly reduced the number of ads shown. Thanks for playing, though!

This game is pretty good.

It's a nice take on an old idea: Several '80s arcade games are essentially the same. Needless to say, mouse (or touch) control is much better for this than a digital joystick.

Thanks Sheldy, four stars & favourited. :-)

sheldy responds:

Thanks! I'm glad you liked it! I like to play this on my tablet because it is so well suited to touch input.. definitely better than a joystick :)

Good game just removed the adds with add blocker
