Chroma Circuit a color matching game for you to enjoy. Each level has you matching facets on squares or triangles, playing against a par move. The rules are simple, but complexity ramps up fast.

Great idea. Well executed. Except the colors of blue and purple are entirely too similar, making it almost impossible for me to play. Too bad.

davejay, there's a similar tiling game called Tetrod that might work better for you. It uses Java instead of flash, though.

Chroma circuit can be found on kongregate, for those of us addicted to our kong profilen. No achievements atm, apparently though

I sailed through the first six levels (par on each with no restarts) and then pow! I don't even know where to begin on level seven. Throwing colors across the screen makes my head asplode.

Actually, level seven turned out to be cake too, but I'm guessing I'm going to get spanked soon.

I'm with bpm140. I cannot figure out how the color changes work on the second section.

Fun, and bookmarked for Saturday or Sunday, when I can afford to dedicate a few good wasteful hours to this game. I played through level 4, and enjoyed it quite a lot. Very highly recommended. Good post, boo_radley!

This was cool, but they need a better algorithm for figuring out the minimum number of moves. Good way to spend a little time though, thanks.

For the color change levels I had to test to see which pairs were linked, there doesn't appear to be a marking for that. Once you know which pairs are linked (always one black and one white) you just have to make sure the colors on both sides of the linkages match.

for the disconnected slots, click on the color wheel, and that will highlight its partner.

Owwwwww my poor poor brain! I was so glad to run out of levels of this game.

I thought phase one was really fun. Phase two is too hard! I got through the first two levels of it but didn't want to deal with any more frustration.

Swear I solved level two: All blues were touching blues and all greens were touching greens--but yet I failed.

Sorry: I'm red/green AND yellow/blue color blind. I had to look hard to discern a difference from the blue and the "kinda different blue" --and it wasn't happening.

Which is why I had to get help to complete the NES Wizards and Warriors title. Thanks Shawn!

As far as I can tell, all the blues I saw weren't blues; perhaps purple?
So: Color Blind BOOOOOO!

Damn. I see others were having problems with the second level.

I assumed it was because there were three colors there and I could see only two. Was I wrong?

If so, I'm stumped at the solution.

Ugh. I meant level three. The one entitled "Shock and Awe."
posted by sourwookie at 12:22 AM on April 30, 2009

I'm trying to get it:

I want to see blue and green on level three--I solved it with that in mind.

I focus on it and I can sorta see green, blue, and kind of blue (ha!) that shifts places with neighboring blue. Then I blink and it goes away. There HAS to be three colors on level three, right?

Motherfuck Christ almighty:

I give my best guess on the blue/different blue that look the same and luck into a solution on "Shock and Awe" and the next stage is a few green and a bunch of shit that puts me in minds of melons at various stages of ripeness.

I don't know what would dishearten me more: To learn that "Ancient Relic" had only two colors or more than two colors.

I give up.

Hey! Game designer! Use primary colors!

As a member of the non-colorblind majority solely interested in keeping the brother down, this game needs more levels.

I liked it. The first group was easy, the second group was harder, but the addition of the third element made it easy again. I wish it had actually made it harder.

The levels with fewer colors were harder.

Sorry for all the color-blind folks out there. It would be great if they had a gray scale option.

I liked it.

Hey, there's a color-blind-friendly option now (though I'm not in a position to say whether it's helpful). I'd also like more levels!
