It's raining cats and dogs out there... or should we say "raining ON cats and dogs"?

Overview

Soak 'Em Out is an endless score attack game that takes heavy influence from the Game & Watch Gallery series. You play as Tina, a cat trying to catch a bus that unfortunately is taking an unusually long time to arrive. To make matters worse, a big storm is brewing! With no true shelter nearby and only an umbrella to take cover with, how long are you able to delay the inevitable before getting soaked out?

Controls

Move: WASD or Arrow Keys

Toggle Umbrella Position: Space Bar, Z, or X

Tips

- Deflect droplets to delay the storm. If a droplet hits the ground, the precipitation meter will fill up faster.

- Waterfalls cannot be blocked by any means. They have to be avoided.

- After certain point thresholds, a sunflower seed will appear. Get it to the pot and something good will happen!

246 high score (I let the rain get to 100% then just avoided the drops and waterfalls and just protected myself from cars)
