How to play NETTY

To excel at NETTY, you must FOCUS your MIND.

Hold Z to charge up.
While charging, use the arrow keys to aim.
Release Z to launch!

You can also use the arrow keys for a secret technique...


GEMS are key to NETTY.

Collect yellow gems. The first one is worth 100pts, and each subsequent gem collected within the same launch is worth 100pts more.

Green gems give you a power-up and are worth 5X as much as yellow gems.
Green gems are the soul of NETTY.

Game modes

NETTY has three different game modes, which you can choose by pressing X on the title screen.

Reflexive ..... 60sec. time attack, a classic
Cerebral ..... limited launches, unlimited time
Sensory ..... an endless, meditative experience

Inverted launching ..... feels like a SLINGSHOT
Normal movement ..... feels like WALKING
Inverted movement ..... feels like a JETPACK

You can also change color palettes from the pause menu.
