Description :
    Hi, let me introduce you my entry to the genesis compo, a survival game called Lightning.
    In this game your goal is simple, you're a tiny thunder fellow trying to pass through some king of dangerous thunderstorm !!
    So you just have to avoid incoming lightning bolts as fast as possible. Getting touched will now turn you to neo-blue

Yeah I know about it, gonna fix that soon sorry ^^
There's another problem too, at the last level, 4 stage 2. There, sparks could come out from everywhere at the same time, preventing you from winning, I'll soon fix this too.

Edit : Fixed in version 0.64 ;)
