Color Flip Puzzle

Because the next time I invent the wheel it will be better!

I've remade this game from scratch in almost every language I've spent any significant amount of time using. I've remade it now in Python, JavaScript, Elm, Java, and even in C with Win32. Each time I build it though, it's a little bit different.

Normal rules toggle a "+" shape around a clicked point between red and yellow in a 5x5 square grid. This version adds a third color just to make it little more fun.

You can get from all yellow to all blue in 5 clicks. There is a x/y symmetric pattern for getting from all yellow to all red in 10 clicks.

Challenge 1 - 18 clicks
Challenge 2 - 14 clicks
