HTML puzzle game.

Minimize the field and make it white. You can't step on a tile containing elements of your own color. Stepping on a tile mixes in your color.
In later stages one color is always masked out on the stage.

Tested and works in Firefox, Chrome and Mobile Safari.
Should be somewhat responsive and work either with keyboard or touch controls.

--- WHAT I USED ---
* Libraries used: Hammer.js (for touch gestures) and Modernizr (for feature detection)
* Apart from that it's all vanilla JavaScript, CSS and HTML

You should rethink the design of level 5...

@Sebastian: Do you say that because the gameplay is not good or because you don't like the use of buddhist Manji symbol?

Hello, fellow HTML game maker person. I love the concept. Still stuck on level 4 but trying to get past it.

Aaaand got past it. The rules for which colors you erase take some time to figure out.

And I must agree about level 5, looks too much like a swastika.

Our games share a name! Of course I had try yours :)
It's a neat concept, but once you introduce the filters I'm completely lost. I passed level 6 through trial and error but level 7 is just way beyond me at the moment.

These were pretty tough, but fun

Cool game! Simple, but a lot of complexity. I tend to think in primary and secondary colors better than in RGB, so that would have been a little easier for me, but it was still fun to try to work out how to do it. It might have been cool to have an undo or savepoint feature so you could backtrack to a certain point where you screwed up. Neat idea, simple but well executed.

Very nice gameplay idea! There's still some potential in the visualization - some kind of graphical effects or animations would have been nice. Also, there are quite a bit too many swastika levels for my taste (yes, yes, it's an old symbol and the Nazis used a mirrored version, yada-yada - still, I book that as "provocation"). The game itself is surprisingly fun to play, however!

Great idea for a puzzle, very innovative. Blocking on your color is easily understandable, the mix stuff is also understandable but is not very intuitive. For a non-programmer or non-graphic designer the game could be messy to learn.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs (http://mysite.com/mygame.zip) and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
