Bacon Jam 6 just finished with a theme of Rainbows, and this entry by Cal Janik-Jones eschews the traditional shape of a rainbow in favor of mixing shifting rainbow colors with music. The color changes are pleasant to look at, shifting fast enough to keep the gameplay interesting without creating a strobe light effect (though epileptic people with flash sensitivity should probably still be cautious).
In it, you control two circles. The larger, dark circle is controlled with the mouse and the smaller, white circle is controlled via keyboard. There are also even smaller circles which are not player controlled, bouncing around the screen at various speeds and changing colors at random intervals. The background is also changing color constantly, and if one of the smallest circles matches the current background color, you can't see it. The dark circle, however, eclipses the background, making any of the colored circles within its radius clearly visible no matter what. It acts as a search light, which is needed because your goal is to run over as many of the colored circles as you can with the white circle before time runs out. The more colored circles you catch, though, the smaller your dark circle gets, making it harder to find the colored ones.
That may sound complicated, but it really isn't. If you play the game, you'll pick it up pretty quickly. The game was made in Unity and is available via web player on any computers that support it or via downloadable builds for 32-bit Windows, 64-bit Windows, or Mac OSX. Linux users, unfortunately, are out of luck.
