I suck at these kind of games! :) Awesome and hard. You just want to try one more time. Nice music!

Developer(+1)

Thank you! That "one more try" mindset when just playing around with throwing and catching the wrench before it hits the ground is what led me to push the game entirely in that direction! It really hooked me, so I probably spent too much time playing the game during the development period. And I'll pass the music complement over to the composer =) He definitely did a great job!

This one was tough!  I finally found out it was best to sort of get 'em out in the open and up high because you fall faster than the wrenches! Also I didn't realize until I was almost done playing that you could just catch a wrench by touching it. (I think?) A lot of fun!

Yeah, that feels like the right strategy! Round them up in the open, throw, and then drop to catch =) And yeah I updated the game so you don't have to time a keypress to catch the wrench, since the game was proving *too* difficult. Your post makes me realize that I forgot to update the controls menu, so I'll go ahead and get that fixed! Thank you, glad you enjoyed it!

I really enjoyed watching this one come together over discord, great to finally play it! 

So I'm terrible at this game but I do appreciate the challenge level, lots of replay value to just get a better score!

Great job and good replay value for a jam game!

I like the bird movement and animation!  The squirrel were creepy cool.  Good job!  Please play Puma Cat if you can~

It's flappy bird armed with a wrench. What more could you want? ;-)

Developer

What more indeed... I did consider making it more like flappy bird by making touching a building or the ground a loss condition, but I figured that may be a bit too brutal.
