Info:

This is my first game. It's a simple color based puzzle game. Before this I didn't have any experience coding, it was a fun first project for me. I hope you enjoy playing it and would be happy to get feedback on it!

This is fantastic, congrats on an awesome first project! Looks/sounds/feels great. Even after a few minutes, I could feel it "training" me to look for the path with the fewest color changes and intuit the number of button presses to switch to a certain color, which is the kind of thing I find really rewarding in a puzzle game!

If you're interested in expanding or refining - I do think the time has to be pretty tight to keep such a simple premise interesting, but I can never last for many rounds and I think it could be fun to have it start out more forgiving (perhaps more time on the timer) before starting to ramp up in difficulty.

Thanks for the positive feedback! I have played with the difficulty settings and found that more time would allow it to go on for too long if you get a few quick clocks in a row. A lot of it depends on the luck to the board too. At this difficult I've been able to get a score into the mid 300's, so it's possible but requires some practice! Wrong moves also punish too.

One idea I had was changing the parameters after a certain score is achieved. Such as earning less time or punishing more if the score reaches a certain amount. But as it's written now there is no change in difficulty, aside from the randomized board.
