"Catch all the foxes, those little foxes, before they ruin the vineyard of love, for the grapevines are blossoming!"

-- Song of Songs, 2:15

Consult the living oracle revealed to us through the I Ching or Book of Changes. Ask it a question sincerely and receive a series of divinations. But watch out for viruses! Eliminate them with your twin detonators as they emerge.

☱ = joy / 兌 or lake / 澤
☰ = force / 乾 or heaven / 天
☴ = ground / 巽 or wind / 風

In English, ☱☰☴ translates to Wind off of Heaven's Lake or Pleasure in Strong Penetration.


Keep the viruses away from the top of the screen where your health is. Drop mines with Z and X. Wait until the viruses get close and detonate the mines with the same button. Destroy multiple viruses to get score combos. Z is the left paddle, X is the right. Move back and forth with LEFT and RIGHT.

The viruses increase in number and speed after each wave, and you also recover some health. Each new wave generates a new hexagram, and its explanation scrolls in the yellow area below the health structure. These explanations are the result of your consultation with the oracle I Ching or Book of Changes.


LEFT / RIGHT: Move paddles
Z / X: Drop and detonate mines
F11: Fullscreen

The Windows download should work without any additional libraries. Just unzip the archive and double-click the lake-of-heavenly-wind file to play.

The source requires Pygame 1.8.1+ and Python 2.6/7 to play. I haven't tested it on anything besides Debian Linux, but it should work on Windows, OS X and Linux.
