Acid R(ai/eig)n / by Allison James


Another "quickie", Acid R[ai/eig]n was the result of an idea I had around 10pm last night. By midnight it was this game. It may suffer lag if you're really good at it, but it should hopefully be minimised now (I released it as a direct link over Twitter last night which suffered it a lot harder).

Anyway, in Acid R[ai/eig]n, you are in control of the growth of a tree. You can use Z and X to rotate the curvature of branches currently growing. Every three seconds, branches will split into two separate ones. As the tree ages, or as acid rain makes contact with it, it begins to die. Holes will start to form in branches, which need to be patched up. The game ends when 100 droplets of acid rain hit the floor.

It's an arcade game, not the most variety-filled thing ever but probably worth a quick single play. Trees can be very pretty to look at, I've left the F9 screenshot function in if you want to take some screenies of your trees and share them.
