Version 0.0.1 of Double Don't isn't not here!
What started as tinkering building a micro game/toy for a GM20 game jam idea evolved into, what I find to be, a surprisingly addictive reversal of a block popper puzzle. Avoid matching either the eight colors and the shapes or expect cascading consequences!

I really enjoyed this little toy/game. The music and sound design overall are great and fit well with the kinda mystic, artsy cube designs. For some reason I find the background sprite very effective at giving character to the game presentation, it's basically just a looped gradient but it works! Overall it's quite a polished little thing, the only missing bit is some more juice when we wrongly match pairs, with some sound and/or visual effect.
Gameplay-wise it was indeed much more fun than on paper. After a couple wins I had fun trying to break the game by click-spamming: I eventually figured that I could more or less get an advantage by spamming blindly 3 of the 4 rows (leaving a gap in one of the middle rows) until they're roughly filled, then finishing the board more carefully. Compared to a very good player I'm not sure the strategy stands though. I don't know if it's worth introducing a cooldown between getting blocks.
Like AdroitConceptions I also found some pinks/reds a bit close for comfort, not color blind here so I'll just took it as a will to trick players a little bit ; but yeah this doesn't seem too friendly for color blind people.
I hope you'll figure out how to expand the gameplay, interacting with the board was satisfying so I wish I had more contents to play with!
