Would it be possible to change the red or orange color? I was having difficulty telling them apart on my screen. Otherwise great quiz! Much harder than I was expecting XD

Sure I can adjust them. Hard to know how exactly without seeing your screen. You don't happen to have nightshift or equivalent enabled do you? (Screen tints orange at night to protect your eyes). It can make all red/oranges look very similar.

Nice! Gave you a spotlight, I don't honestly know what that means, but it was fun.

I will say, with my screen on low brightness, it was hard to tell orange from red. Maybe shifting the orange more toward the yellow side would be better?

Thanks! I've shifted the orange towards yellow as suggested. If I go further it doesn't stand out from the grey very well, but hopefully this has better differentiation from the red?

There aren't any coloured grey. It's maybe true that it wasn't loading. What browser/device were you using?

fascinating... EVERY answer is between 59-61% correct. You would think the ones where the color and word are the same would be significantly higher, I wonder what caused those mistakes?
+1
Level 64
Dec 15, 2023
It's because of random chance. Because no one is presented the colors in the same order, you may not get to all of them before time runs out. That causes the average to be similar for all of them. It's a similar scenario for name all countries in random order quizzes.

Also, note how it's impossible to guess wrong due to the design of the quiz

YES! 40/40

I got mad because I was always 4 more away or less.

I played your other version too.

Other than that great quiz!
