Nice game.

Would it be much work for you, Philipp, to add some statistics(How many times where I wrong? Which is my strongest topic) or highscore features to it?

Stats about what the average user supposed to be the right answer would be cool too. I'd like to see where most users were wrong and which question almost anyone could answer right....

Funny game, I could become an addict of it if only I had some more time...

I pondered adding a highscore but it would mean image analysis (starting from the top of the PNG image and going downwards, which color do you hit first, red or blue...), which would mean caching all possible images on this server or having the overhead of real-time image processing. But maybe I'll add that...

(Hmm, I could also cache them on my PC and only upload the results blue vs red.)

How about asking the user whether they guessed correctly? It wouldn't be 100% accurate if people lied (or clicked the wrong answer by mistake) but the system could go with what the majority said...?

BTW – no results for this one:
