Well done for finishing! I did find that the easiest way to get points was to stay in the same position and spam the button, but other than that it worked really well. Good job!

Yep, it is totally missing the challenge element but that's where we manage to get with the time we got. Thanks for leaving your comment!

Quite fun, funny game. Could do with some more challenge or a timer or something so it ends.

Developer

Indeed. We were running out of time so we had to simplify and decided to chose sound effects and music over a timer, assuming it would make it more fun (a timer would make more sense with an end screen and some other things would queue along with it). We also had to leave some minutes for a last time testing. Thanks for your feedback!

Haha, cute!  This reminds me of one of the first games I ever made, "Pigeon Drop" for the TI-99/4A. :)  Ah, those were the days.  But yours has much better sound, music, and artwork than mine!  But... why do the bird droppings appear to have wings?

Developer(+1)

Nice! Same situation here, we have none to very little experience in game development, this is one of our firsts. The flying poop was a design choice for a rather cute approach to the droppings. Thanks for the kind comment!
