Review: Color Commando photo
Review: Color Commando
by Chris Carter

The combination of puzzle and platforming is one of my favorite hybrid genres of all time. There's something about having to figure out challenges on the fly while testing your twitch capabilities that makes for a unique experience, and the mix of the two tends to fit perfectly more often than not.

Unfortunately, the formula doesn't always go right. Sometimes, the action elements feel off due to wonky physics, and not all puzzles are created equal. Color Commando is one of those games that could have been so much more with just a few tweaks.
