One Color

by jonask - 48 Hour Compo Entry

You have to select the strongest color!


Extract the zip and run one_color.exe


I recommend compiling the game from source but if you want
you can run the windows binary through wine.

Arch Linux:

sudo pacman -S --needed git gcc make allegro
git clone
cd one_color


sudo apt-get install git g++ liballegro5.0 liballegro5-dev
git clone
cd one_color

Written in C++ with allegro 5 using a text editor :)

this is the kind of puzzle games I love : makes things happen in your brain, not on screen. Thank you for this entry
My only suggestion is that the gameplay should be slightly faster (faster transitions between levels), but it's already almost perfect as it is.
I will play this again and make other people play it.

I got an error on level 20 that quit the game.
The concept is very simple and there isn't much to it, although the game feels very nice to play.

It's deeply simple. Nice work :), brilliant.
It may need some polish, but it's sufficient.

Very nicely done. Minimalist approach done very well, loved the sound design, no over the top sound cue's.

Got to lvl 35. The sounds were very nice :). The threat of a countdown works pretty well here in driving the player.

Nice fun little game. I get the feeling this could be used for some sort of thing like ink blots. Just an idea :D

Addictive game, reached level 38. I think you can improve the game by making it faster: skip the pause between two levels and reduce the time for selecting the color.

You must sign in to comment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


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 ( 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.
