Specific, but I'm intrigued by this.

The concept is interesting but the game is pretty hard and the collisions were embarrassing.

Interesting idea. The collisions were kinda brutal, if you get trapped by multiple aliens it seems you basically lose, but it was neat trying to match up the colors, and after memorizing the pattern the colors change in it helped a lot.

Interesting concept. Bit easy to get overwhelmed and trying to jump between colour. Might be better to have different buttons for different colours.

Didn't play it, because it requested to make changes to my computer (it basically made an admin access request). It shouldn't need that to run.

Can you please make pure Windows build without installer? This game is cool, but one who want play it shouldn't have to install and then uninstall it.

Have not played it (no Windows machine) but that description is worth something by itself. Gold star.

That was unexpected. I liked the music, it was really fitting the whole experience. Pogo is a tough one :).

Art isn't easy indeed. :D

Had fun spraying aliens with color on such a mesmerizing background.

The game is interesting, it is difficult xD.

Very strange. However, it doesn't really seem like it's very easy to actually hurt enemies, because that requires putting paint of the correct color in their path - but in order to run away, you often have to change direction a lot, so you end up creating blobs of paint essentially normal to where they need to be. Also, even if they are in the right place, they are often the wrong color.

However, I do think that the concept is solid, and the music fits pretty well.
