Wave or Waive

Someone is waving at you. Or are they waving at someone behind you? It would be embarrassing if you waved back like an idiot. This is a difficult choice and you only have a split second to make it.

Gameplay Instructions:

This is a three player party game which is played locally on one shared keyboard.

One player uses the 'A' key, another the 'B' key, and the other the 'L' key.

Press 'Enter' to start the game from within the title screen.

In the next screen the game will let you know the randomly generated features of people that you should *not* wave at.

When each player has read and memoriesed these features they should press their button.

When each player has pressed their button the game will start.

The 'wavers' will enter the screen one by one. Each player should press their button if they think it is a friend, otherwise they should 'waive' their wave and do nothing. The 'wavers' will start off slowly but things will speed up as the game progresses.

The winner is the player who is the most successful at waving/waiving.

Hopefully things won't be too EMBARRASSING!


(Press 'R' to restart the game at the end, or the 'Escape' key to quit.)
