About This Game

It's the comic book platformer you have been waiting for!

Your name is Tadashi and you're a Japanese computer science student. You wake up in a strange room you haven't seen before and no one you know is there. You acquire a color phasing ability and decide to activate it!

Your memory is not clear any more and you can barely remember how your girlfriend Saki looks like.
You decide to find an escape from this lonely place...

Can you overcome all the challenges before Tadashi goes insane?

BE WARNED: Challenging game mechanics and extremely hard boss battles!

The great anime promo art drew me in, but unfortunately the gameplay was mind-numbingly boring and needlessly difficult. In addition, the in-game art was extremely lacking, there was no voice acting...Ugh. Not worth $10, and not really worth buying at all.

"Spectrum is game set on the pages of a comic book. This comic book is the most boring comic on the face of the planet. Generic colored floating rock after different colored generic floating rock occupy the pages. You jump from platform to platform while changing color to match what you want to touch. Some platforms have walls that you can walk through when you don’t match the color. Others have walls the same color as the platform, forcing you to flip colors twice in one jump. As you progress more colors are added, portals are introduced, and the story drags on. Occasionally, there are enemies in your way. You can only avoid these enemies, there is no way to kill them. And sometimes you are chased through the level, forcing you to make changes fast that you normally would. These were the only parts of the game there were exciting. Spectrum has large number of save spots, you can practice small sections of the game until you get the button combinations just right and then move on."

Good:
+ playable even on older systems
+ challenging difficulty caused by the control scheme / color change system
+ fast loading times
+ nice background art / music
+ keyboard and controller support but I prefer keyboard controls

Improvement suggestions:
  • more puzzle variety, too much lever/button puzzles, the second to last level shows some nice mechanics,
    the color system has so much potential
  • better story-connection between cutscenes and gameplay, cutscenes should contain more artwork
  • single level select after beating the game
  • game and comic book could be longer ;-)

I would recommend the game to players who like (difficult) platform games and comic books :)
It's good value!
