Pressure Drop Windows The game's title screen


Published by
Developed by


Pressure Drop is a one or two player, keyboard controlled, colour matching game.

The player(s) have a Chromagun which moves left and right on a rail at the bottom of the screen. The Chromagun fires different coloured rays for reasons which will soon become apparent. From the top of the screen ranks of coloured tiles descend. The player must use their Chromagun to destroy the bricks. They achieve this by shooting selected tiles thus altering their colour and tone so that each brick in the block is identical.
The tile blocks are descending and unless they are destroyed they will hit the Pressure Ray. Each block that hits the Pressure Ray causes it to move up the screen thus shortening the time the player has to shoot at it, each block destroyed lowers it.
Naturally all this is too easy to achieve if that were all there were to the game so along with the descending there are also various power-ups, a variety of brick types, and baddies.

The game is keyboard controlled and the action keys can be redefined


Pressure Drop Windows The Hall of Fame
Pressure Drop Windows The start of a single player game
The Chromagun is currently set to green
Pressure Drop Windows In among the tiles are four Sinister Spheres
These are blue and need a blue ray to destroy them
Pressure Drop Windows Trying to alter blue tiles to green is not the best idea, should be changing them all to the same shade of blue
