DESCRIPTIONGarden of Coloured Lights is an abstract vertical shooter with music elements. The enemies, in fact, are kind of musical. Part of what stands out about Garden of Coloured Lights are its graphics, that even though are kept quite simple, are also carefully taken care of. Every ship still has moving parts and mechanisms that open and close, and every level is different, even though all of them share a common theme.

CONFIGURATIONgarden doesn't accept any command line arguments. Configuration is via the file ~/.garden/init.txt, which also records scores and configured key controls.
The following configuration can only be done by editing init.txt (under the heading [Misc]):
- Use Windowed = 0 for fullscreen, Windowed = 1 to run in a window (default).
- Turning vsync on (vsync = 1) eliminates a graphic shearing effect which some people might find annoying, but can slow things down on older systems. Default is vsync = 0.
