rRootage red-blue recolouring patch


Playing STG requires to consider two objects: projectiles and player. This patch changes colours of objects in rRootage: player is red, projectiles are blue. This way, using anaglyph glasses, each eye sees only one of two requires thigs, which adds a bit of difficulty.

Inspired by idea of Lazy Eye Tetris.
