KNOW YOUR ENEMIES
- Know the ranges of all your enemies.  If you know their range, you can know how far away you need to be to no longer be concerned about a particular enemy.

WITH PRACTICE YOU CAN DO MIRACLES!
- Sometimes there is no safe place to go and you will simply have to take the hit, but if you practice and know your enemies and your capabilities you can often do miracles!

DON'T GET UPSET IF YOU DIE
- Bad Rain is a game where you'll die a lot.  It is just that type of game.  Don't take it personally, don't feel bad about it, and don't let it affect your next gameplay.

KNOW HOW TO WEAVE BETWEEN EXPLODING PARTS
- Some enemies explode into several parts either in the air or from the ground.   Knowing how to sometimes weave between these parts can open your game up to more possibilities.

KEEP YOUR ENEMIES CLOSE!
- Sometimes it can be a good strategy to stay close to certain enemies...especially those that explode outward.  Moving away from certain enemies can be more dangerous than staying near them as seen in the video above!

CONSTANTLY EVALUATE YOUR POSITION
- Every few seconds as you play ask yourself if your position is good, comfortable, and safe.  If the answer comes back 'no' or delayed, move to a better position if possible.

GIVE YOURSELF BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT ESCAPE ROUTES
- As the raindrops fall, try to picture yourself having to move to the left or the right of the drops above you.   If you can't move in one of the directions when that drop gets to you, your mobility is limited.  Try to move to a better spot that allows for BOTH left and right escape routes!

PLAY ON THE SIDE
- If you position yourself more towards the sides, you'll naturally be out of range of many of the enemies that fall on the side of the screen.  Not only can they not hit you, but they are now one less thing for you to keep up with during gameplay and you can often ignore the other side of the screen.

WATCH THE TOP OF THE SCREEN
- When playing, watch the top of the screen where the raindrops and enemies first appear.  The sooner you see what enemies or raindrops are coming, the sooner you can plan your moves.

PLAY WITH CONFIDENCE
- Don't play in fear.  Have confidence.  Playing while thinking 'Oh no, Oh no, Oh no' has been shown to not produce good results.

KNOW THE SOUNDS OF EACH ENEMY
- Each enemy has its own entry sound that plays when the enemy appears (or just before the enemy appears).  This sound can be an early warning that the enemy is present.  

AVOID CROWDED AREAS
- On more difficult levels, mobility becomes more important.  Try to position yourself in places that provide freedom and room to move.  Avoid areas that are getting crowded with raindrops.

KEEP UP WITH NEARBY FIRE ENEMIES
- The 'fire' enemies that block your path last about 8 seconds.  If one appears next to you, you can silently count (to about 10) so you'll know when it will disappear and when you will be able to move into that area.
