Fun online color vision test

Cool site. I scored 32 on my first try. But I have to admit a few of them were pretty tough to spot.


#3

It took four tries, but I made it to robot! Cupping your hands around your eyes helps.


#4

I got 27 on my first try, and I am legit colorblind. Deuteranopic, I think. The brightness differences were enough on some of them.


#5

Yea, taking the test over and over until you memorized the answers is not the same thing as good vision.


#6

I think every time I’ve played, the odd one out has been lighter.


#7

Aren’t they all identified by brightness cues? I didn’t get any obvious hue differences.


#8

For those who really want to go all squinty, let’s not forget the x-rite Pantone color challenge.


#9

To be fair, they change up the sequence of colors each time you play the game. I scored “dog” on the first try and “hawk” on the second try.


#10

I scored 503 connection timeout. T.T


#11

I kept getting distracted by the stupid brain malfunction of seeing dots in between the squares. I scored a tiger for whatever that is worth.


#12

I think this is maybe even easier if you’re colorblind? I have a form of protanopia and didn’t have much trouble getting it right on the first try. Sure, some were a bit hard to spot, but not really difficult…


#13

It’s easier with glasses on.


#14

Tilting my laptop screen helped with the tougher ones.


#15

This started distracting me badly as soon as it got to an 8x8 grid. The dark dots kept swamping out the light-dark comparison of the squares.

I did get a 27 the first try (a light teal color threw me at the end). Second attempt I held out until a purple at 34.


#16

Rapid switches from red to green and back were harsh. Too much purple too. And the dots thing too.

They should add an eye rest consisting of a grey swatch for a couple seconds between the rounds.


#17

I got the eye of the tiger


#18

Same here.

Not very effective for actually telling if you’re colorblind.


#19

This is not a color test. It’s a contrast test using colored squares.

A real color test varies the color, not the brightness.


#20

Yes, that seems to be the case. I’m going to note that in the post. Thanks.
