Polychromatic is a physics-based arcade shooter with a pop of color. The goal of the game is to earn the highest score possible.
Polychromatic has three modes and each have slight differences in how they play:
In Endless Mode you are given three extra lives, three blasts, and three dashes to start with. Your goal is to earn the highest score possible before you run out of lives. Extra lives, blasts, and dashes are earned after completing specific waves. This mode is great for players who want to get large scores over a sizeable play session.
In Timed Mode you play against a countdown timer with infinite lives. As you complete waves, additional time is added to the countdown. Additionally you will earn blasts and dashes after completing specific waves. This mode is for players who want a shorter play session.
One-Life Mode functions the same as Endless Mode with the only difference being that you have no extra lives. If you die, the game is over and you must start again. This mode is for players who want an extreme challenge.
