Double Retro Monday

That’s right folks, not one but two games this week.  I know I know, I give too much, but it’s who I am.

First up is Color Theory.


Color Theory is a puzzle platformer where you have to use colors to manipulate the stages.  The concept of the game is kind of difficult to understand without actually seeing it or playing it…so here’s a picture.

color2 Basically you hit the different color plus signs to add or remove parts of the stage to progress.  There are also combined color signs that remove the colors that were used to make that color.  The game apparently works on the additive theory of colors which is all explained if you click the how to play button and click more info.  But I’ll save you some time, jut play it and you’ll figure it out, there’s no need to go and make this educational if we don’t have to.  The routs are usually fairly obvious but challenging enough to make it fun.  The game introduces new mechanics the farther you get into it, but I’ll save those for you to find out.  The levels are fairly short and there are only 30 of them so beating the game is not a big task,  I think I did it in about 20 minutes.  The game is well thought out and (except for the music) and enjoyable to the last level so i reccomend you head here and give it a whirl.


Second on the list today is Super PSTW!


Super Press Space To Win is an rpg of sorts (as the title implies) but only in a vague sense.  You control a stick figure wielding a sword and your only mission is to hit the space bar a bunch of times.


Super PSTW is super easy, I’m not really sure you can even lose, but you do most certainly have to press the space button. As far as I can tell about the plot of the game, you seem to be a black man facing off against various other colors of men and even a small blue thing.  It takes about 4 minutes to beat and leaves you with out too much satisfaction at the end, much like most rpgs I’ve ever played.  So give it a shot, it’s free and i hear the plot rivals FFXIII without all of that walking around to get in the way.


So if you have a few minutes to waste head on over here and waste away. 

Have a great week and let me know what you think of this weeks crap..i mean post.
