RGB Zero is a puzzle platformer: you can only touch things that share a RBG color with you. You start black, you can touch nothing. You will be able to touch walls and coins as you pick the color power-ups.

congrats on being the 5th million post


That boss fight is crazy.  I really like the color mixing aspect.  It requires backtracking to figure out how to collect everything.  Really enjoyable.

Thank you!


very nice game

I did a speedrun, I have now found you can skip the fourth coin but it's really tight. The third may also be possible, The second one I got by mistake :P

That's so cool! Thanks for sharing! I didn't intend to make avoiding coins a speedrun strat but it ended up working like that :D


I finally beat a boss noice

I was lost at level 1, I have no idea what imdoing, i just anna fight the boss :(


You only touch things that have a color in common with you. For example, if you are yellow: yellow is made of green and red, so you touch all colors except for blue. If you are red, you touch red, yellow, purple and white, and so on. This is important in the boss fight too, so if you can't get through the level, the boss won't be much fun either...

If you just want an old fashioned boss battle, I recommend playing my other game Frost Heart instead :)



I love the game and his confusing mecanic is cute and the best part is the boss fight oh my god this is one of my favourite games of this site 


I want part 2 lol 


Thanks haha :)


This Game is amazing. It's quite confusing but It's really good. I hope you make more levels so the game is longer.

Yeah it's too much stuff going on for a first level. I'll add simpler levels with less colors before this one in the final version.


I'm not a video game designer but I understand perfectly how confusing was programing this game. Good luck designing the levels! (Sorry for my bad english, but that's because I originally talk spanish)

A very fun idea that really forces you to think to progress. I hope you flesh this out into a longer game!

Thank you. It will happen eventually :)

Amazing, I absolutely love your colour system!

Thanks! Glad you liked it!

Great game! Feels a little unfinished though. It's also kinda easy, but that's not really a problem. I got a score of 45 on my first try.

It feels unfinished because I made it in 2 days for Ludum Dare :)

I'll make a post-jam version at some point.
