Hey!

Nice concept here. I actually spent some minutes trying the first stage, and while I didn't really get the tutorial at first, it made sense when I played it.

Nice challenge here.

I have issues with nearly everything in this project. Just a heads up.

Let's start with the concept. Switching between dimensions (that's what this boils down to) is a fine, if overused, mechanic. Combining this with non-recharging resource pools, on the other hand, just doesn't work. If I make a single mistake, it is better to restart from the beginning than try to recover. In the end, completing a level requires multiple playthoughs and memorising the whole layout. This is not very interesting.

The switching mechanic is described as three different vision modes of the avatar. If this is the case, then why do the platforms actually disappear when you don't see them? The universe doesn't disappear every time you close your eyes, does it?

The frustration of the mechanics would actually go away if the plaforms were there all the time and you simply could not see them. This way even if you run out of "VISION POWER" for a certain color, you can still try to complete the level.

Graphically I do like how the avatar looks and the way it is animated. Unfortunately the plain background does detract from the whole.

Functional, yet frustrating.

Hey! Nice game! All the things I would haved point have been already mentioned by Huvaa above, he's right, in order to complete the game, I had to remember the level completly after dying several times, and honestly I did expected the platform to stay there, even tho I had selected another color.

Nice Job!

I would have loved to play the game but unfortunately the unity player did not load even after waiting like 5 minutes. Could you provide a download version of the game?
