Play It’s Raining Cars!!!… And Also Gems now!
Wendy recently moved into a nice neighborhood in a quiet valley.
Not only is it a nice neighborhood, but it’s also full of priceless gemstones. And what’s more is that they seem to magically replenish themselves — in fact, they conveniently seem to drop from the sky every three seconds.
Unfortunately, so do a number of large vehicles.
But, in Wendy’s mind, the risk assessment that goes “accumulating untold wealth by collecting large amounts of priceless gems” versus “being flattened by an armored truck doing a nosedive at terminal velocity” is a simple one: Get all the gems!
How do I win this challenge?
Very simple. Run around, dodge the falling cars, and collect as many gems as possible.
The top 5 people on the leaderboard with the most gems collected will go on to a lucky random draw to win $1000 USD.
The gems and cars spawn infinitely. The gems spawn every 3 seconds. The cars spawn every 0.3 seconds, because bouncing cars are funnier than bouncing gems.
There are also a number of gems placed strategically around the map in caves and indents, but they are only accessible by jumping onto buildings and precarious platforms… and those can also be destroyed by the falling cars, so you have to move quickly.
You’ll notice there’s also a timer running in the top corner. This timer has no bearing on your high score. It’s just there for extra kicks. The only thing that matters is gems! ALL THE GEMS!
You only get one life, and you will be required to record your score at the end of each game (to prevent leaderboard sniping). You are of course free to play the game as many times as you want.
The challenge will run from Monday, June 27, 2022 @ 12.00pm CEST to Monday, July 4, 2022 @ 12pm CEST.
At the stroke of 12 noon on July 4th, the five top leaderboard holders will enter a random draw to win $1000. Join the CREY Discord to watch this take place live in our #playpen channel.
What about glitches/bugs/cheats?
If you use cheats (e.g. third-party intervention), or if we just see a very suspicious-looking high score, then we’re not going to count your score. It’s our discretion whether to disqualify you or not. Them’s the breaks.
