Degrees downloads to a 90.4 MB zip file that unzips to two files, (a setup executable and a read me). The game installs to the following path by default, but can be changed if you wish. The installed game is approximately 257 MB in size.
C:\Program Files (x86)\Degrees
Five shortcuts are installed to the desktop, four of which can be safely deleted (i.e. Falco Space - Online Game!, FalconLine Online Games Website, FalcoGo WebGL Games! and Free Games Downloads!). If you don't want to install the games shortcut to the desktop during installation, just make sure the install desktop shortcut is unchecked when the 'additional task's window appears; you will still get two of the other Falcoware shortcuts installed (i.e. FalconLine Online Games Website & FalcoGo WebGL Games shortcuts). Also, if you don't like icons installed to the quick launch task bar, make sure you also uncheck the appropriate checkbox when the 'additional task's window appears (after the Select Start Menu Folder window).
The Game:
The game starts with a menu screen in Russian; however, you can select the option to change this to English (EN) via the language button located to the bottom right of the game screen. The game also opens in a large window.

The multiplayer portion of the game doesn't have a specific button labelled multiplayer. instead, next to the main tittle there are three buttons, one of which takes you to a multiplayer map that is salmon cloured and has an uypward pointing arrow. The orange triasngle resets the main menu to Rusian and the lower blue/green button does nothing. Next to these bttons is a title called Balance and below that infomation about the game i.e.
1) ... The lobby creator automatically becomes the hunter. 2) ... When you start the map the victim has 30 seconds to hide from the hunter. 3) ... To become invisible for five seconds the hunted can use the z key. 4) ... the hunters vision is increased by 90%, but it doesn't explain how or why?
Selecting singleplayer opens up a level selection screen with 10 levels. On starting the level as mentioned in number 2 above, you are given some time to find a hiding place on a map that has several walls of various shaped. There's also a warp feature that allows you to transpot to another part of the map instantaneously, but this is often inactive. An active warp is green in colour, inactive warps are yellow. I couldn't figure out whether these were time dependent or of one use per level? Using a warp will automatically deactivate it once you've been transported. Using the warp feature does not guarantee that you can escape a hunter as you may be transported to another part of the map where oither hunters are located. In fact on a numbe rof occassions I used the warp feature to escape only to fnd two hunters at the other end and lost alife almost instantly.

You start the game with three lives. If any hunter picks you up on the map, you get a warning below your life counter. Once they pick up your scent, you can avoid them by finding a hiding place, using various obstaces and mazes. They have slightly more speed that your vehicle, so you need to manouver efficiently to avoid being caught. If any hunter touches you, you'll lose a life immediately. When all your lives are lost, the game automatically resets to the start of the level, but with no time to hide. This continues until you complete the level. Pressing the Escape key automatically takes you back to the main menu. When the level selection screen for single player mode is open, you can play any level right from the outset. I played this game on and off for over an hour and could not find a way to end a level.
To start a multiplayer game click on the upward pointing arrow that is located next to the games title. Below that is a triangle, which if pressed will reset the game to the Russian menu. The multiplayer map includes the number of opponents located in the top left hand corner of the map. Each opponent has a different colored car and the number allocated is dependant on who starts the map first, for example when I entered the map as the first one my red number was one and it was the same color as my car.

The settings menu includes a volume and graphics quality sliders, with a message tellng you that quality significantly affects performance, the higher the quallity, the less the Frames per second and vice versa. Setting the quality to full you get a message saying R.I.P. PC. On trying different setting I couldn't detect any change in the graphics quality however on maximum quality, the vehicles seemed sluggish. There's also a mouse control drop down menu where you can select to use the mouse or turn it off. (its off by default) to return to the main menu press Esc. If you return to the options menu, you'll find all the setting s have returned to default. This also occurs when closing the game down and restarting everyting resets.

The game indicated that it includes a multiplayer option, but there doesn't appear to be any way to create a lobby. You can enter a multiplyer map, but you are the only vehicle entering. I left a multiplayer map running for over an hour with no one joining. The hunters had a rendancy to get stuck against walls and the games boundaries
The Steam store reviews (HERE) say this has mostly positive reviews; however, I'm very suspicious of those reviews. All the positive reviews have very little time in game and say nothing except mentions multiplayer and achievements, which are not available via the free standing version which we are given. You can see all of the reviews . Most of the positive reviews are in Russian and they have mainly less than 30 minutes of game play.

Problems getting the game to work:
If you're having problems installing or activating or Degrees to work please visit the FAQ's Thread HERE and read through the communities comments because sometimes fixes have already been posted, for example, a common issue seen since the Themida wrapper was introduced three years ago is that some community members installation of the game are blocked by their security because Themida code has been known to hide malware, (usually an error message is flagged for example 'The executable is corrupted' even though in reality it is not); so as a precaution some anti malware programs will block and even delete the suspect installation files even though the files (i.e. the setup, read me and setup.gcd files are actually totally free from malware. This issue can be solved either by rebooting your computer in safe mode with networking or a quicker method is to temporarily turn off your security software to allow the installation. You could also try white-listing the setup.gcd file. In the almost 12 years this game giveaway site has been operating there has 'never' been a game given away that was infected with malware.

If for any reason you want to contact the giveaway team, for example, you have a game to offer the community, or are unable to download the latest game or other issues that the FAQ's thread or these comments don't cover or solve you can do so HERE
I'd like to take this opportunity to thank the developer GiBar and the distributor Falcoware Games for giving away a free standing version of Degrees, and also to the game giveaway team for securing more free games.
