Color Commando isn't quite sure what it wants to be. Its initial levels make it feel like an introductory 2D platformer designed to show young children the joys of running back and forth and up and down flat environments while avoiding obstacles. However, by the time you make it to the fourth of the game's five worlds things will have become far more challenging. Split-second timing and no small amount of lateral thinking is required to pass these levels – especially if you want collect all of the coins along the way (and the coins are required in order to unlock the final level in each world). These challenges will test the puzzling and platforming skills of even experienced teens and grown-ups. Young kids will likely be flummoxed to the point of frustration. There's probably a niche crowd of indie-loving, pixel art-appreciating, puzzle-platformer adoring players who will flock to this one. Others are destined to be disappointed.
