How to play

Shifty Dot is really easy to control. First, open the app and click on the gear icon in the left sidebar.
Next, enter how many players you're going to have. You can also think of this as how many sections you're going to use. For example, if you want to split your crowd into thirds and have each section do something when the dot lands on their color, just set the number of players to 3.
Not every game is going to need a timer. If you are going to use one, enter the amount of time, in seconds, next to the number of players. When you start the timer during your game, the circle will disappear based on the amount of time that you're set.
Now, click on the control icon in the left sidebar. This will show you all of the controls. You can either click on the buttons, or use the corresponding keyboard keys. At this point, it all depends on the game that you're playing.
