  • Blocks: Pulse of a random block around your screen. Kindly like fish reaching the water surface but here it’s square block going up, and then disappear.
  • Raindrops: Rain that falls from top to down your screen.
  • Cloud: Random clouds showing up in all kinds of situations.
  • Space: Here it looks like you have over the wheel of on a space ship and drive yourself in space with all the stars around you.
