Nice. It's very addicting. It seems like you're doing something to make it easier to find the color -- I really like it actually. Gets pretty challenging once you have a large grid!

Overall: minimalistic madness, with addicting gameplay.

Innovation: there are some "find-that-thing-quickly" games already, but now in an overflowing amount, so it may worth a 4.


Theme: well, you are stricted in 10 seconds...but nothing else. Decide whether if it's enough - for me, it's a 3.

Graphics: background is fancy. Random appearing colorful pixels are fancy. These fancy things works in this game perfectly. But on the other hand, it's still not more can the same colours, instead of any kind of textures.

Audio: few, but enough. 4, for the lack of music.

Humor: no humor. Damn, is this category to important?!

Mood: I'm in space. *m*

Not conducive to my color blindness, but I still managed to make it to level 9. Couldn't make it past that after several tries ;) Like it, despite my disability to play it normally. =)

I've lost count of how many times I've reset this game to try to beat my score :)

Excellent work! Brilliant game.

I like this game, the concept is there and working which is nice, not much music on this but the timer beep helps, the graphics were okay, really only colored quads. It was fun to play, not much humor in it but, who really cares about humor? And it had a nice mood. Overall good job.

Cute. I love the falling particles, +graphics for that. I got to level 7! :)

Nice search the color game with the pressure of time. passed level 18 so i can't be so bad :D Like the concept.

Really nice game, simple but well done. I really enjoyed playing it and found it very addicting. I included it in my compilation video of LD27 games, if you wanna check it out :)

Aug 27, 2013 @ 3:47am

Got to Level 30! Surprisingly fun and addictive! Falling particles are a nice touch.

I do think the difficulty curve could use a little tweaking. Played maybe 7 or 8 times and couldn't get past level 7. Then, my next try, I got to level 30. I suddenly felt like I had tons of time. I think I had something like 25 seconds when I got to level 30. But I burned it all on that one level and could never find the pixel.

@Jupiter_Hadley thanks alot!

@Jarcas Studios never got over 2x myself Oo and yes, currently it simply calculates the extra time based on levels, so at higher levels it starts to add quite a lot..

Arf... level 8 and no more xD

Pretty minimalistic and addicting game that fits the theme like a snug glove... good job!

Very good. Although the color blind may not like it much. Consider adding shapes or patters or icons to the squares. They were a bit difficult to single out. Plus some of the color choices were harsh on the eyes. Great concept though!

Cool game but I don't know why you have to be so evil to me. (I'm slightly colorblind) And I found a bug if your interested, I had to look for a white square and there were no white squares on the board. I failed twice looking for that white square and since it is white it doesn't have to do with me being colorblind. Anyways, good job! :D

Got to lvl 27, amazed how I was able to almost instantly spot the odd pixel! Nice audio and good clean visuals.

Simple but effective.
I went to level 15 and get 4 shades of blue, I get lost.

Cool idea, very nice implementation. Has everything it needs

Sep 2, 2013 @ 7:04pm

Simple but addictive. I did find that I did much better when I got a good run of bright colours.

At first I was puzzled. Trying to click on the small pixels lol ^^

Once I got it, it was quite fun and hectic. Nice one!

Very nice idea. Funny as how this game would fit minimalism and 10 seconds theme =)

Liked it a lot. Congrats.

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.
