Brief Play Description: 

Use arrow keys to avoid rain drops.
Use spacebar to jump.
While jumping in air use 'a', 's', 'd', to chang eto Red, Green , Blue.
Rain drops also 'white out' the level.
You win when most of the level colors have been washed to white.

If you are 'hidden' (when you match the color you are on), you deceive the rain.
If you are 'visible' (when you mismatch the background), more drops will trigger.
You can not hide in White areas of the background.

Alittle self rating

I decided to realisticlly rate our game with a 4 for the following reasons;

1- We started late and achieved quite a bit with LESS THAN 48 hours
2- We made our own engine, we did not use Game Maker or similar products
3- Art was "hand made"
4- We're awesome
5- Our programmers did one hell of a job working out collision detection, designing
a "rain system" and working out the physics of the game
6- Did I mention we're awesome?

New levels

Hey good news guys, Danielle and I have located her thumb drive, so the newer levels that we made are safe and sound. I have a few on my thumb drive as well.

Fixed Game Mechanics

Hey Gang,

We've updated our Game with fixed Win Condition and Hiding in the Red Area. The Raindrops also target your Player more closely while the Player is not hidden.

Enjoy!

Known Bugs

Hey Gang - Wanted to post a couple of quick bugs that we know are in there.

Our win condition is a bit broken, so the game has become a survive as long as you can game.
You are unable to hide in Red areas on the map, even when you are Red yourself.
The Options, Exit and Restart buttons don't do anything.

A couple of Postmortems will be coming around soon.
