Color Switch is a platforming game that was made by David Reichelt. It is published and promoted by Fortafy Games. The official web version of the Color Switch is created by Poki. The aim of the game is to navigate your player (or "ball" as it is referred to in the wiki) to the finish line or end goal (e.g. "cherry" in Fruit mode), or remove all of the obstacles from the screen (Brick, Paddle, Break, Shoot, etc.).
Death in game can be achieved by:
- Touching a surface that is a colour which is not your own,
- Touching lava, void, or a similar substance at the bottom of top of the screen
- Letting a ball leave the screen from the bottom by missing it with your paddle
- Missing your target of a block the same colour as yours or hitting on which is not.
Each mode can have one of 8 actions when the player taps the screen. (Jump, Slide, Switch Direction, Glide, Turn, Shoot, Move Obstacles, or Slow Down Speed). There are at least 50 levels per mode, and usually an endless mode added about a week after release of the aforementioned mode. Most modes also contain their own musical loop made by Tom Garnett as well, although songs have been reused before.
"You must follow the color pattern on each obstacle to cross it.
Tap the ball carefully through each obstacle and your ball will switch color with some powerups. You must follow the color pattern on each obstacle to cross it.
Be careful not to pass through the wrong color, or you'll have to start again."
There is a total of 270 balls.
There are a total of 56 game modes, 42 of them also being endless game modes.
All music in the game is made by Tom Garnett, a British DJ who specializes in Deep House music. Half of the songs used in Color Switch are simplified and often instumentalized versions of his prior music. This trend has faded as of late though.
This mode, you can play for infinite time until you hit something. Every time you retry, the obstacles are randomizes.
