I am proud to present my very first Cemetech Contest entry: Splat!

Splat was made for Cemetech Contest number Twenty-Two, hosted by _iPhoenix_.


 --Cemetech Contest Number Twenty-Two: Sprite Delight!--

As the rules state, here is the "contest specific section" in the readme.
If you can't tell what it says above, here is it again:
Splat is written in B# for the TI-84 Plus B#Fb.
Even though this game is not completely sprites, I believe that it completes
 the checklist of necessities to be a valid CC22 entry.
Here's the Cemetech topic thread: https://www.cemetech.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=15639
 should anyone want to read the sudden barrage of updates in May.

- Character editor
- Help screen

 --Installation--

Follow the instructions from some other program or guide book.
TiLP and TI Connect CE should both work fine.

You also need the latest C Libraries on your calculator, that you can download here:

 https://github.com/CE-Programming/libraries/releases/latest

This program requires the libraries:
	GRAPHX
	KEYPADC
	LibLoad


 --How to Execute Splat--

Shell is recommended.

If you are using a 5.3 os or above, then:
After sending S2C.8xp to your calculator (RAM or Archive):
Press [prgm], scroll to "SPLAT", [enter], [enter].

If you are not using a 5.3 os or above, then:
After sending SPLAT.8xp to your calculator's RAM:
Press [2nd] [0] scroll to "asm(" [enter] [prgm] scroll to "SPLAT" [enter] [enter]
And finally, update your os.


 --How to Play Splat--

This should be self-explanatory:

Enter the program and use the arrow keys and [2nd] to navigate the menus,
During gameplay, use the arrow keys to navigate your ball between the paintballs.
Collect your inner color as it will add to your score,
Your middle color acts as a filter and protects against its color,
The outer color is the most vulnerable and will cause you to loose a point...
 If you have no points to give, you will die.
All other colors will cause you to die.
Exit and backtrack menus by pressing [clear].
Open the Help screen by pressing [prgm].
Press [enter] on the help screen to activate Dark Mode.
Pause the game by pressing [mode].

Gameplay is very similar to Aspirin, so it should be very easy to pick up.
