That could easily be solved (multiply by 10 and subtract from the total of correct digits) … I don't check whether a colour has already been tested and with what kind of result …

A modest suggestion: go ahead and score the color twice, irrespective of the correct position using the 1's digit BUT score the correct position(s) by adding nine to the score rather than ten. That is to say, score the colors first with sums of 1-digit in the one's column and then score the position second with sums of the 9-digit in the one's column.
Four color example:
a) 3 correct colors = 3
b) 1 correct position = 9
c) 3 + 9 = 12
d) 1 correct color in correct position, 2 correct colors in wrong position

Make sense? Give it a go!
