After seeing a youtube video where players where not able to walk on green/red or blue blocks, I thought i could make a datapack to do the same thing with any color.
In fact i choose to implement all of the 16 colors in Minecraft (Wools / concrete blocks/ ...).

Therefore, i coded a program to recognized the colors appearing in the blocks of minecraft and implemented it's outputs in MC.

What does the datapack do?

every minute you have a chance to get a new color to avoid. If you ignore it, you''ll wither to death.
In-game you can see what is the current color and what will be the next one in order to prepare.

As the 16 colors version include rare ones (pink, magenta,...) I choose to reduce the pool to 5 by grouping them.

In the 5 colors version you have:
- redi_sh      => red, orange and yellow
- blue_ish      => blue, cyan and light_blue
- black and white  => black, gray, light_gray and white
- green and brown (nature pack)  => green,lime and brown
- purple_ish  => purple, magenta and pink

As you can imagine this version is harder.
You can use the alternate download to get the 16 colors version.

Your challenge, if you dare, is to beat the game with this datapack.

Pro Tips : the colors recognized by the program can be seen with F3 (check right side #minecraft:...)

PS : the color recognition pattern of the algorithm i coded may be a bit strange sometimes. Feel free to report any strange outputs.

The color detection is currently done using an automated algorithm. The reason why the grass block appears in the 'black' color group is because it contains some black pixels.

In the future i may change the algorithm or even list all blocks by myself to solve this kind of issues.

in any case, thanks for the feedback

make sure Minecraft is in the Java version. (not tested in bedrock)

steps to install:
- download the archive
- open it and choose the version you want
- place the .rar inside your datapacks folder (inside your save folder)
- do 'extract here' (or make a folder with the same name, then transfert the content inside)

-> you should be able to /reload in game

to be sure use '/datapack list' after reload
