Combine colors according to the light color wheel:

Red + Green = Yellow

Red + Blue = Magenta

Blue + Green = Cyan

Red + Blue + Green = White

How reflection works: When light touches an object, it absorbs some light while reflecting others. A key observation is to note that the all the light we see from an object is actually reflected light. A red apple is only red because it reflects red light back to our eyes. If we were to shine a pure red light on the apple, then it would not absorb any of the light and reflect all of it back to our eyes.

TLDR: Shooting a red laser at an object that has any red in it will just have it reflect back at you. Instead shoot a blue or green laser at it! White objects are special, use white lasers on them because reasons!

Likethemammal (Chris Dolphin) 9 8 7 9 8 8 5 8 Unique control scheme. Wanna see more of this in the future.
PopoSensei 6 6 5 5 5 7 3 5 I really liked this game you guys made. There are room for improvement, but hey there was only 48 hours. I don't think there was a lot of humor in this though so only 3 points from that.
fil089 (Filipe Costa) 9 8 7 8 8 8 7 8 Well, what can I say? Problably a contender for the best game on this edition of BGJ! Solid gameplay, beautiful graphics, good audio, controls smoothly and have some good sense of humor in there. I have only one grip with it, and it's theming. The character uses on lasergun with various modes, but your goal is the same throughout, shot the giant's lens. The finger was a good addition to give the weapon more purpose, and I appreciate it, but I thought you could have done just a little bit more, like color filtering the laser through the tears, forcing the player to choose colors more carefully. You made an excelent game, sadly short but outstanding!
DielMormac (Marcos Antônio Marcon) 7 10 9 10 8 5 9 8 It took me a long time to understand how the colors work, and I felt the controllers a bit uncomfortable (many buttons). But you did an excellent artwork and a nice concept. Congratulations!
machinemalfunction 9 10 9 9 9 4 7 5 Fantastic game! The light adding mechanic is really confusing at first but pretty cool. I think you need some more HUD elements to help indicate which lasers you're combining. The game itself is pretty easy. Would be great with a few more levels. Besides that, the art, sound design, and actual gameplay are fantastic! Great job for 48 hours.

ThunderousEcho 7 9 9 8 7 5 5 8 What the player needed to do was not clear without reading description. Mouse controls not clear as well. Also, game could be easily beaten by spam-clicking all the colors. Otherwise, great art, good music, good difficulty balancing!

    Nice graphics, funny game. I included it in my Bacon Game Jam 10 compilation video series, if you would like to take a look :) https://youtu.be/McYiDxZRPOA
