I don't often play a game and immediately go through it again after finishing it, but I did that with Color Guardians. Thanks to its fun and bright graphics, truly difficult levels, and different scoring systems, I found myself playing each level again and again in an effort to get all three stars or get a high score for the leaderboards. While the side-scroller could use more tutorials and more story, it offers up challenging and fun gameplay. That said, Color Guardians is a game that probably shouldn't be missed.

Color Guardians is one of those overlooked gems that'll unfortunately go by unnoticed for the most part.

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

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 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.

Color Guardians is a simple game with a straightforward purpose - run and button-mash. It will certainly challenge gamers with fast gameplay and demand multi-tasking sharpness from its players, but doesn't offer a lot beyond those things.

Color Guardians is a charming little title that will be appreciated by endless runner fans. The inconsistent difficulty is a problem, and its lack of variety means that it's best played in short bursts – but if you want something simple to brighten up your day, then this will do the job adequately.

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 blends a variety of fast-paced genres together nicely. It controls perfectly and every set of stages changes things up enough to use the core runner/platformer/rhythm game template and keep it interesting.
