|Player 1||Player 2|
“Refraction” is a simple two players game with a twist.
Move the joystick up/down to move a ship, press the button to fire.
A missile's trajectory will be “refracted”, when passing through the barrier at the opposing side. Missiles will bounce inside the opponent's field until they expire after a certain period of time.
Push joystick sideways towards the opponent while a missile is passing the barrier to increase the refraction angle, pull it in order to invert the refraction angle and play it à la bande.
Avoid the floating “bouncer”.
Developer's Note: The game is intended to be played with joysticks (not D-pads).
Press Select (F11) or any controller buttons to start the game.
Press Reset (F12) to return to the title screen.
The Color/BW switch (F1) selects shapes of player sprites.
Feature complete, Public Beta 1.
Please mind that sounds are probably slightly off in the online-emulation.
