I guess it is 80 colours when you include the background layer.
According to the very interesting preview in 'The One' (issue 68) the game uses 64 colours for the foreground layer and 16 colours for the background layer.
Well worth a read. Especially an interesting part about the developers looking at techniques used in old movies to fake a depth of field effect and how this inspired a similar blur-technique effect for the backgrounds in Putty Squad.
