Guide Mario to the silver pipe through worlds of puzzles by painting him different colors. The game's special rule is that you pass through any obstacle that matches your color. Be careful, this applies to enemies as well!

I decided to give it a shot!

-Graphics are nice

-Movement is fairly solid

-I like the concept

-Not going to lie though, 'Mario Learns About Colors' while a tad humorous... it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue. I would work on changing the name to suit the game. A humor name is for a humor game. If you get what I mean.

-I didn't really see much of an incentive to get the coins. They are a hassle to get because of the gimmick and there is not really a reward or special title for getting them all.

-Maybe give this idea a thought, when you are a certain color you make the blocks that you can pass through about half the transparency they are when you actually go through them. I think it would make the game look a bit cleaner and better but that's just me.

-Pyramid level was pretty amusing

-I like the game icon

-Maybe it would be pretty cool for an icon of the colors you currently have in yourself in the top right corner in a UI box or something.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it.

-There's actually some history behind the title that I won't go into here. But yeah I agree that it should be changed. Once I have more time I plan on giving it a new title and then redoing the graphics so it's an original game.

-A reward exists for collecting all of the coins actually.

-I thought about making the other blocks transparent but it won't really work when you have enemies later on that change color. It also has the potential to teach you the concept incorrectly.

-I don't understand what you mean by this.

Looks pretty fun, I must have a go at it later

 

OK, well after having played all 30 levels of the game I have to say its a very well done game. Its got great level design especially if you enjoy this type of puzzle platformer. 
 
Everything seems to have a reason to be exactly where it is, the subtle addition of new gameplay elements throughout is genuinely enjoyable and the bosses are pretty cool.
 
My one problem is this: Why does it have to be a Mario fan game. If you made original artwork and assets for the game it could be 100% original and maybe even more enjoyable. I think if you added a story to it also it would benefit somewhat and could have the potential to be a very polished gem of game that could even be sellable on the right platforms.
 
Overall, I'd give it 7/10. So yeah its pretty good :)
