Color Guardians is the kind of game that feels like it needs to be liked. It almost feels like it was secretly released already. It took notes, amped up what the test group really liked, and then degraded the things they didn't. While the soundtrack is great, it's also very much what would be expected. Twitchy and very demanding (in some very unfair ways, more often than not), and dull and repetitive graphics remove any good work the soundtrack does. This leaves behind a game that, for all intents and purposes, falls short of all of its goals.
If you enjoy the entertaining torture of Super Meat Boy or Bit Trip Runner, I'd say you should get out there and guard some "colors". Just don't forget which colour is which.
With its vibrant visuals and easily accessible gameplay, Colour Guardians is the best kind of gaming palate cleanser. While certainly not a prospect for the long-term, Colour Guardians regardless entertains with deft aplomb when taken in short bursts.
If you are looking for a challenge, Color Guardians will have your back but if are looking for a fun and interesting title, you will probably have to look elsewhere.
In terms of graphics, Color Guardians doesn't offer anything particularly spectacular, but it's far from offensive – the environments are very vivid and pleasant and creature designs are memorable and unique
Ultimately Color Guardians is a bright, cutesy, challenging runner with some good ideas that falls through when it comes to keeping it interesting. Restarting from checkpoints over and over only getting a little bit closer to the end each time quickly grows repetitive, draining any drive there might have been to continue playing.
Color Guardians is one of those overlooked gems that'll unfortunately go by unnoticed for the most part.
While Color Guardians could've used more zest in its character personality – and a few more easygoing levels to keep rookie players in check – it's still a better game than expected, thanks to its interesting gameplay and crazy challenges. If you're a fan of running or rhythm, be sure to try on this Color.
Color Guardians is not too shabby as a fast-paced side-scrolling platformer title. Despite its lack of voice-over and better dialogue, the game can be or not be worth your time. It boils down to the gamer's preferences. But if you ask me, based on my review and experience on the game, it's a fair platformer game but Color Guardians is not worth purchasing if you're a short-tempered player.
I was prepared to give Color Guardians a solid "meh" at first. Its central concept is GOOD and it shines when it lets itself do that without any room for button mashing, but that only happens during the last third of it. Building up to that is a fairly dull experience, not without challenge but certainly without excitement. If it had ended just before the final boss, it would be a forgettable runner that underdelivers on a good idea. After that terrible fight, I actively disliked it. Play this if you like a challenge and have patience to get to the good stuff, but don't even bother finishing it.
