Some words on the gameplay:
*****************************************

You are playing a pixel displayed on a white line at the bottom part of the screen.

The pixel can be moved to the left or to the right: touch the bottom part of the screen, on the right/left of the pixel to move it to the right/left.

You can also change the color of the pixel , by touching colored (yellow/pink or violet) pixel coming from the top of the screen.

Your pixel must be colored like the pixels coming touching it, else you're gonna lose one of your lives.

You've 5 lives for each level (9 'regular' levels and 1 secret).

If your pixel has the right color, your score will be better.

The 10 levels have different graphic
themes, from 'Space invaders' to 'Formula 1 race'....

Whahuh? The look of the game is cool, but I have a hard time understanding the gameplay from the video.

basically you have a single pixel at the bottom that you control by moving it left or right, you will lose a life if you allow it to touch another color that is scrolling at it from the top and you gain points by allowing it to travel in its identical color

I really don't understand, what is the challenge?
Was playing two levels. The style is fantastic (love the menu), the sound is great! But this game has no difficulty at all?! Or am I missing something.

I perform. Therefore I am. You should book me.

I got to level 3 on my first try...it is fun, but...

-I can't get the pixel to move fast enough left and right since you tap to move over 1 pixel at a time... I was expecting to be able to tap and hold to move over more quickly
-hmmm, I don't know how you would do it, but is there any way to make our pixel stand out more??? ...it is very easy to lose it among all the other pixels

Certainly a unique idea for a game...and lol, yes, the first level or so has the directions, but I was so busy trying to keep my pixel out of trouble, I had no time to read them.
