Description

Cosgrove's Umbrella is a single player platform game that was created using Gamemaker software.

The main character, Cosgrove, is a blob who has been whisked away from his home by an evil weather demon. The player's job is to guide Cosgrove back home which, in gameplay terms means completing a series of increasingly difficult screens. Each screen has an exit point which is revealed when the player flips a switch.

Points are scored by collecting coins, sixty coins gives the player an additional life. In addition to coins the player can collect Glob which is what Cosgrove spits / fires at enemies. The umbrella of the title is an on-screen item that, when collected, grants temporary invincibility.

The game has a high score table which shows the top ten scores and levels which are password protected. It is entirely keyboard controlled.
