I'm pretty bad at runners, but it still didn't take long for me to get engaged with Visible Spectrum, a Flash entry for Bacon Jam 6. That's not to say it's easy, necessarily, though some of the randomly generated tries are much easier than others. It features some neat, if tricky, wall climbing and lets you use the power of the rainbow to remove platforms that are in your way.
You control your rectangular avatar using the WASD or arrow keys. I honestly couldn't explain to you how the jumpy wall climbing works. My hand figured it out, but my head is still scratching itself. You pick up on it pretty quickly, though, because without it you can't really get anywhere and its use is well built into the system.
The controls are very intuitive, in general. Hitting space bar causes a rainbow to shoot out in front of you, which gradually makes any blocks it hits disappear. This is great when you have a big cluster of blocks that you can't easily get around otherwise, but if you accidentally erase the only block you could jump to then you've screwed yourself over. Sometimes you encounter a half-wall of darker blocks extending down from the ceiling which are either impossible to destroy with your rainbow or take much longer. I am not sure which, since I died to those walls until I learned to just go under them.
