    [What is Opacity Rain?]

    Opacity Rain is a little 2D dodging game made by our own Joshua Caputo on the forums.

    Controls are easy enough, tap left to go left, tap right to go right. The point of the game is to dodge those little discs that come down at you. Every time you are hit my a disc, the stick man fades a little bit and all the discs change their direction. The game ends when the stick person fades completely from view.

    [Presentation/Graphics]

    Simple stick figure and falling discs. It's all right though I wish there was more to it than just that. Nice shade of pink though.

    Absence of pause button in-game

    Found a glitch that really butchered the game for me. What it would do is make the stick man's animation really choppy and fast while slowing its movement. If you're curious, check out the video.

    [Extra Info]

    [Audio]

    N/A

    [Replay Value]

    I'm going to perfectly honest. It's really not that fun. I suppose the game was just an experiment for his game in development "Territory Wars" based on a flash game with the same name.

    I don't think I can play this game with genuine excitement, much less play it over and over.​

    [Final Thoughts]

    This could be a great game if some more features were added. Perhaps if you weren't restricted to just the small screen and could move everywhere. I don't dislike the game, I just wished there was more to it.

    [Ratings]

    Gameplay/Controls: 4/10 - Gameplay is slim/bad. Controls are good though. Never had a problem with it.

    Presentation/Graphics: 5/10 - It's all right. Lack of pause button is annoying.

    Audio: N/A - Not present

    Replay Value: 2/10 - Can't bring myself to play it again.

    Value for the Money: 4/10 - A lot more games are better than this at the same price.

    Overall: 3.75/10 - I wouldn't recommend this game at all.​
