How to Play

How It Works
It doesn’t. Not in this demo at least. The idea, however, is as follows:
- The map uses two layers:
- A background (shown at half opacity)
- A single layer for anthing that can occlude sprites
- Our pom-pom adorned friend can be situated more tightly between occluding areas than his less subdivided predecessors.
- The background color is altered during horizontal interrupts to add a gradient behind everything.
