ABOUT:

... and then it rained is a minimalist arcade game as well as an acoustic and visual experience.

Set in an abstract world, you have to catch colored and different sounding rain drops by dragging and reordering matching towers, resulting in a rhythmic and nearly meditative world of sounds and colors.

The gameplay is optimized for mobile devices: It's simple at the beginning with intuitive one-finger-controls, but later levels require fast thinking and good reaction times.

Different game modes let you decide whether you want the game to be a relaxing, Zenlike experience or a swift and difficult challenge.
