How Good Are You?

At your color knowledge, that is.

It was challenging, especially at the end, but I love colors and seeing the relationships between colors, so it was a lot of fun!

8.9

10 10 9 9 8 8

Honestly the last few categories were hard mostly because of the control scheme feeling awkward. After struggling with the first 2 out of 5 figuring out the mousing around the last three were much easier. Be nice if they had a practice round or two beforehand to get used to the color picking method.

I couldn't work out what I was meant to do, to be honest.

The goal is to move around the color wheel until the background color matches the "countdown" color.

I had more problems with the controls than the matching.  When I started getting flustered with the controls, my matches went down from 'perfect'.

I blame the stitching.

Once you get as close as you think you'll get, just click on your mouse (or on the clicking button near your trackpad) and it will "score" how close you were - good, very good, perfect, etc.

I had a lot of trouble with the last two - the triadic colors and the 4 colors (tetradic?). It took me a while to get the hang of which points were associated with which parts of the circle.

My first try was: 10,9,8,7,10,9

And it said: 8.8, so, I'm better with colors than with words!

10,10,7,8,7,9

My main problem with it is that the 'leway' it gives is very inaccurate. sometimes I looked at it and I honestly couldnt have got it more blended, I couldnt see the circle at all and Id get a very good, and other times I could still clearly see a difference between the colors and Id get a perfect. Sometimes Id get a very good and then on the next match id get a good and think that the one I got a good for was more blended then the very good one

And they really need to fix their control scheme, it makes it difficult. (About to be speaking designer jargon) I dont know what language they wrote it in but a simple binding of the mouse to the center point and then tracking it and having rays go out from there would make it much easier, instead of it circling around all the time. Much more accurate and not having to worry about the time limit so much as you wouldnt have to worry about pushing the selection to where it needs to go

I suspect that the interface is deliberately clunky.  >_>  That's my story and I'm sticking to it after getting far too frustrated on the complimentary colors section.

Oh well they did it deliberately. It takes a lot more coding to do what they did as opposed to the suggestion I made. Which is skillfull actually. They actually HAD to try to make it that bad, it just isnt a good thing. Your eyes will work better when you are relaxed giving better results. Their 'innovation' worked against them this time
Why they chose that scheme I have no idea haha.

Admittedly, being colourblind didn't help much.

I totally sucked at this, maybe poor eye hand coordination and could not figure it out at first. Maybe another try later.

Note: I was an studio art major and thought I knew this stuff. lol.

9, 9, 6, 7, 8, 7. Summarized score of 7.7.

However, the interface really, really annoyed me. I could match colors quite easily when I could recognize which color correlated to my cursor. But it seemed to switch which one was which! The scoring also seemed a little inconsistent: for the darker hues, it'd be easy to confuse a very good with a perfect, while I could quite easily recognize the lighter and darker shades within all of my perfects for lighter colors.

8 8 7 7 9 9 = 8.0

Apparently, I suck at the easier tasks!  ;D

Good game, Caeli.  Thanks for sharing.
