Made for the Taku Game Jam in 4 days time.

Basically, it took me 3 days to have an idea and  1 day to make the game.

Arrow keys to move. The bar on the upper side protects you but moves on itself. Stay focused!

This is a simple survival game where you have to survive under the rain as long as you can! Playable by short sessions.

other than the fact that nightmare and creepy are easier than normal, its pretty fun (if a bit simple). Good job

Thank you!

For info:

Normal => Standard speed, a big enemy spawn every 5 seconds
Creepy => Fast speed, a big enemy spawn every 5 seconds
Nightmare => Fast speed, a big enemy spawn every 2.5 seconds

Interesting position balance...

Higher -> Less time to react to changes of direction, but more leeway to avoid big enemy by moving down

Lower -> More time to react, but if too low must avoid big enemy by moving up which goes against the rain

Stiff controls are tough, though. It seems to act as a barrier between my actual dexterity and the character motion, so I'm not sure if I lost because I lack reactivity or just because of the fixed speed. I know it's the standard for many bullet hells, I just question it every time it puts me to disadvantage (or at least I think so... Maybe if I had the option to toggle it, I could compare).

But for a 1-day implementation, good job anyway.

Thanks for your comment! I had to rush some things because I had no time to implement everything, and I know there is also a bug with the hi-scores, but the rules of the game jam don't allow me to make patches... I'll probably do them after the results! Thanks for the constructive criticism!
