About the 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?

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.

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.

It was a real disappointment for me to play this game. The screenshots and videos made it look like an interesting experience and the type of game I'd enjoy. But after playing it for some time I began to get frustrated with the controls, the wonky physics, and worst of all the constant stuttering on the screen. The stuttering got to be so bad that the game became unplayable and I had to just stop altogether because I couldn't successfully navigate the levels. Maybe the game runs poorly on higher-end machines, and maybe the game will eventually be fixed and playable. But it left a bad taste in my mouth I would recommend you to be cautious when buying this.

This is a good platformer. The color change ability allows you to switch gravity around. The whole gravity change mechanic is common these days, but they use it well here. If you can get around the simplicity of it's graphics it's certainly worth playing and is a great pick up and play game if you've only got a few minutes to waste.
