That's really cute, a reverse Moorhuhn if you will! I like that you gave us a more "pacifist" option - but even when striking the bird, you did add a cute animation all the same. The fast birds are jerks, for sure! I took several runs for a perfect one, as the fast birds kept getting zapped! Poor worried cloud-chan.


I did get a browser crash on my first play, not sure why. I was just zapping a bird by accident and then it crashed. Not affecting my rating though, just wanted to mention it!

This game's got an interesting reversal in its premise. Instead of trying to strike things down with your lightning (as would be the case in other games), you're trying to avoid shooting gown birds! The ability to speed up the charging of your lightning also leads to some good decision making about when and where to charge. It's a simple and short game, but a good one.

hahaa! But what if I wanted to hunt the birds! It also allows for that! loved the animations and general world. Well done Johnny!

Really loved this one! Fantastic job! It was short but it was actually one of the most fun games I've played so far. It was extremely simple to pick up and understand how to play, with straightforward mechanics. There are definitely ways you could grow this into something really fun, maybe on mobile! Great job with the art and overall aesthetic too!

Simply Awesome! in every way

Simply develop it more, this has potential to be a super cool arcade game!

The concept is pretty cool and simple to understand, would love to see an endless version where you can hit no more than a specified amount of birds before ending the game.

Super cute and creative game. The facial expressions of the cloud are the best. Good work!

A nicely polished thunderball of fun! The art, sounds, and music sets the ambience just right. I love the glowing effect when the lightning strikes! Good job! :D

This has to be one of my favorite games of the jam so far. The visuals are adorable, the music is great, and the gameplay is simple and fun! Amazing work!

That cloud, can I have it as a pet please? Really lovely visuals to be honest. 
I liked the gameplay, it is fun trying to anxiously steer it away from birds :D
Would've loved to see some other mechanics involved to spice things up but I guess jam time is too tight for anything else :)
Nice work!

Developer

Hello, sorry Cloud (no relation) is not available for purchase at this time.

Thanks so much! :D It was very tight! I had less than an hour left and I needed to make the page up and such. Aaah. Such is the way of the jam!

I just love the cloud in this game, the arms and how he looks worried all the time!

Developer
