About This Game

Colour Bind is a physics platform-puzzler set in an abstract world where gravity is determined not by mass, but by colour. Navigate this unique world by manipulating colour and gravity to solve each level. Beating each unique puzzle in Colour Bind will take patience, intelligence, quick reflexes and sometimes even a helping hand from a friend.

Key Features

  • A true challenge: Over 50 unique puzzles with multiple solutions will keep you platforming for a long time. This game is hard. Early-90's hard. Don't be afraid to step back and think.
  • Colour-based physics: Change your colour and manipulate each level's gravity to solve every puzzle. Primary colours have different gravities applied to them, and when combined form a secondary colour that takes the vector sum of that gravity.
  • A world of secrets: Take your time to explore every level. There’s a world of hidden solutions, distractions, and more to discover. Can you unlock every achievement?
  • Procedural music: Colour doesn’t only control your physical experience, but your aural as well. Each colour has a different music track, and combining and changing your colour will mix these tracks on the fly to transform your auditory experience.
  • Play with a friend: 20 local co-op levels that take not only two hands, but two minds to defeat. It will take impeccable timing and skill to reach the end. The ultimate challenge for the ambidextrous gamer.
  • Create your own levels: Colour Bind’s challenge doesn’t stop once you’ve beaten every level. Download new levels through Steam Workshop or create your own with ColourBind’s fully featured level editor for a never-ending experience!
  • Leaderboards and achievements: Compete with your friends online to get the fastest times per level! Can you find the fastest alternate solutions and jump to the top of the leaderboards?

If you play it enough to get over the initial trickiness of the movement, this game has so much potential. It can get hard in both a platformer and a puzzle sense, and it is one of my favorite games to date simply because of how limitless it seems to stretch. I've probably played Colour Bind more than most people writing the reviews here, and my only complaint is that for some it may take some getting used to before seeing it for what it is. The fact that it has a level editor would be one of my favorite "pros" so to speak. The only reason as far as I have heard was people complaining about the controls and physics, but I'm telling you, it isn't that bad once you get used to it. I honestly can't find a reason not to buy this game unless you aren't very good at grasping different control systems. I personally think the creator of this game got everything right.

9.5/10 even though I never do out of ten scales on my reviews, just in case this was too long to read.

This is a must have if you like physics based platform games. Don't expect amazing graphics, music or sound effects, but a quite unique game with a challenging gameplay that will keep you busy for a long time if you get hooked. Warning, it's not for everyone, as you will need to be patient and fight against frustration to finish all the levels and beat some times.

Even though it's hard, the best is that finishing the levels is not very difficult (only the last ones), the hard thing is to get the gold and platinum medals, the difficulty increase is very well measured. Furthermore, the leaderboards, the level editor and the cooperative mode are added value features that make it even better.

I heartily recommend this game, there should be more games like this.

Challenging! Game's easy to pick up as the controls are simple, finishing most levels is also relatively easy to do - given enough time and resets. The tricky part is to finish the levels FAST to get medals. The targets are brutal, with the gold medals requiring precise control of jumps, bounces, and acceleration to achieve. No hand-holding or pampering here - it's back to how games are meant to be: challenging!

Also props to the dev for putting in the extra effort to make this colour-based game enjoyable for colour-blind people.

Warning: this game is rage-inducing. Prepare to experience sudden and/or prolonged episodes of rage while playing ;)

This game is really a hidden Gem, I havnt played much of the singleplayer but with two controllers the local co-op is amazing. Possible one of the best experiences our there if you are ready to test your friendship with a buddy. I wish there was more co-op levels on the workshop though. Check the Hub video section for some of the co-op plays with one of my buddies.
