Rolling Gecko Buddies Saga: Sweet As Candy Edition 

Thank you for downloading our game! We had a blast making it and we hope you will have as much fun playing it... provided you meet the requirements

REQUIREMENTS

- Windows (we used Windows 8, but Windows 7 and up are definitely OK and older ones probably as well, if you can find drivers for DJ Hero controllers for them)
- Two (2) DJ Hero Controllers (the controls MAY map to other xInput controllers, but we didn't have time to test it! We used normal xInput axises so you can probably tweak it if you want to)
- A way of connecting them to your PC (we used a Microsoft wireless receiver)

Other than that, the game is fairly modest as far as requirements go.


INSTRUCTIONS

You are a gecko. You want to run faster than your buddy. To do so, you must try to match the colour of the world as well as you can.

Here's what the buttons do:

Red, Green and Blue face buttons: select one or more RGB channels
Mixer deck: increase or decrease the values of selected RGB channels
The potentiometer: aim your gecko's tongue
Crossfader: flick the tongue and withdraw it
The black button: yell and shout! Or dub siren! And start the game!

The aim of the game is to be the first gecko to reach the right side of the screen or the last gecko to not fall off the left screen. Do so by matching the colour of the world better than your buddy, or by pulling him back to you with your tongue!
