Game Play

The goal of this game is to grab the pot of gold away from the Leprauchan in order to clear the level. To give the pot more value, you must hit trees, which then turn a different color, giving the pot more value based on the type of tree. The Leprauchan keeps this game interesting by moving the pot around, as well as de-coloring your trees (reducing the pot's value) all while chasing after you. You lose a life if he catches you. As you progress through the levels (there are over 10), the names of the forests change and the difficulty increases.
