If you match the pattern in (x+5) seconds, it will change immediately upon being matched, without rewarding you any points.*

Speed is of the essence here, if you want to earn a high score. And I'd highly recommend using the arrow keys instead of the on-screen controls.

(* Using x because I don't know the actual timer length and don't want to give misinformation. Not trying to be sooper-sekrit.)
Is X different on certain patters? It takes me from .5 - 1 second to line up each pattern but sometimes I notice that the pattern will remain for a few seconds sometimes closer to 5 while other times it only remains for closer to 1 second before it changes again. I know its all anecdotal evidence but its at least enough to warrant the question.
