[games_access] Colors, e.g. red and green

Hi,

My favorite examples are:

Wii Play and Assassins Creed:
One is a simple game and the other a complex AAA game.
But both have to take care for the same rule.

Wii Play:
There is a two person shooting game. The cursors have
different colors red and blue and different symbols.
Oh I notice that also the "hands" of the controller use blue and red ;-)

Assassins Creed:
The status is shown with: color, symbols, animation and sound


Best regards,
Sandra

Red and Green can be ok -- the main issue is how much someone can tell
important information that uses those colors apart. So if the contrast is
high enough than for some that is fine. Other solutions include having a
"texture" or other way to tell that one thing is different from the other
(ie, the enemies have a different look that is different from being, say,
"red" while allies are "green.")
