LASR

by

Do you remember how to to mix colors? Show your color mixing skills in this fast-paced arcade game which will give your reflexes and brain a truly hard challenge.


Let the falling blocks pass the laser by having the laser output the same color as the block. Switching the color on the laser is accomplished by turning on and off the three buttons. Should you fail match the color of the block, it will be vaporized and you will lose a life, reducing the strength of your laser. The laser will regain strength with every block you manage to score. Simply swipe the laser left and right while it's strength is reduced to move it.

There are 12 different speed levels in the game, ranging from very easy to extremely hard. To unlock new speed levels you have to collect a certain amount of blocks in a single game. You can then choose to start at a higher level to avoid having to go through the lower levels each time. All score and coin gains are multiplied by the respective level number, which means that playing on a higher level will give you a higher score and more coins.

Compete with your people all over the world on the global leaderboard and try to unlock all the achievements. Spend your hard-earned coins in the shop to unlock different models for the falling blocks.

There are two different controls to choose between. Either you tap buttons to turn them on and then tap on them again to turn them off. Or you can choose the hold mode, where the buttons will be switched on whenever you hold your finger on them.

You can also switch between three different color mixing models, namely RYB, RGB and CMY.

Version 1.7.0 includes a brand new user interface.

I didn't get a chance to try out the game since for whatever reason my phone decided the play store wasn't gonna work right now but from the trailer I'd say that I really like the mechanics of the game, but there's like 3 visual styles going on. There's the pixel art counter, then vector sprites, and then the buttons and lasers which are kinda a realistic style.. I feel like it would be really useful to figure out what kind of style you wanna go for in your next game or in an update and make sure everything looks like it belongs and fits together nicely :D

Thank you for your feedback. Haven't thought about that with different styles, but now when you say it. Would you rather like a lasery font? And what about the sprites, how could I improve them?

Dig the game!

The UI is good. The idea is simple but fun. You have implemented it in a nice clean way.

I found that I was expecting the balls to hit the laser though, so I was changing colours to early and losing life, thinking that I had matched the ball already.

Last thing, all colours = white, not black. Took me a while to realise this was backwards.

Thank you. About the balls hitting, I have struggled to decide exactly how the balls interact with the laser. I went with that the laser is some kind of forcefield and to be able to pass through completely the ball must match the color the whole time, otherwise it will be vaporized.

About the colors, what you said is true about the RGB model where red + green + blue equals white. However, the CMY and RYB color models are subtractive mixing, which means that you start with white and mixing all the colors gives you black. Or in reality, a brown mess for RYB.

Ah, cool. I was thinking of the actual light spectrum. And Lasers. :)

Through the settings menu you can switch between RGB, CMY and RYB so that everyone can use their favourite mixing model. So try to play with RGB and see if it fits you more nicely! :)

Hi there, this is a really cool idea for a game. You have done a nice job on it and everything works well. I would say the UI needs improving, especially on the title screen. Also when the balls hit the laser i think there should be some sort of reaction. Maybe an effect like they have for explosions in geometry wars. I think it would improve the feel of the game. Other than that tho this is pretty sweet.

Yeah I'm not too happy about the title screen either. Planning on changing it. Do you have any suggestions? Also, does the game UI need improvements as well? Will also keep in mind some sort of reaction. Glad you liked it.

I think you should check out the most popular puzzle games on the app store/play store and try get some ideas from them. Especially the ones with nice UI. Try and keep the UI consistent throughout the game. If you check out videos of geometry wars 3 I think that style of UI would suit your game.

Hi there, i've played the new version and the UI is looking pretty good. I think the yellow and orange works well. I think the purple-y colour might be too much. Not sure tho! I think when the balls hit the laser they should explode if they are the right colour. Not if they are the wrong colour. Anyway i'm waffling. Nice updates so far!

Hello!

I really like the idea but was a bit confused when I kept losing lives. I thought adding the colours would create white.

When all of the colours are selected I realised it actually makes black which would be fine but the black laser has white in it so I thought it was white!

Otherwise it's enjoyable!

PS: I noticed after this there's an option to change the colour mode - a great addition!
