CSplatterX (Colour Splatter eXtreme) is a death arena with cute characters and dangerous colours. Every 20 seconds the colour of the arena changes, as does the physics of the world. Survive while you can, you never know when the colours might be against you!

Can't play it, after the Kongregate's ad, the screen just turns white :/

This game seem unfinished.
The idea is very common in this LD...
I like the cenario, it's look like interesting

An interesting design, though I found that upon hitting an enemy while jumping I would be propelled into the air (off screen) for periods of up to a minute!

Good effort, thanks for sharing.

I like the colours based rules, but was a little bit repetitive.

It really seems unfinished. Found lots of bugs, my character spent more time out of the screen than inside of it. It's a good idea, but there's lots of work to do in it

A little repetitive, and not challenging a lot, but good idea. :)

Interesting concept with the changing of rules but I couldn't figure if or how you could move, I only found the attack button

Some good music choices, but overall, if the idea is interesting, the execution was lacking. Be it in terms of presentation (no sfx, very little animations, bland arena, ...) or deeper gameplay. I kept at it for a while to see what other physics effects there would be, but soon even 20 seconds seemed like too long a time to wait. But think about taking this idea further, you could do pretty interesting things with the core concept I feel.

Cute! ;)
Not really clear goal of this game. But graphics style looks so great!

Good idea, but it needed better execution.

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. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

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.
