simple but really cool graphics. nice idea to write the instructions in pseudo code.

Very simple concept done extremely well, it fits the theme perfectly! I really liked that you kept in interesting by spawning multiple birds and introducing the different weapons.

I'm happy you made the birds split every so often, that really livened up the game. I think the auto gun caused me to lose points as I got too excited XD -- 59 is my high score. I also liked your instructions in pseudocode

Developer

Yay! thanks for playing! The auto gun is like the high risk high reward kinda thing, so it's normal if you missed a few shots haha.

great job! only somewhat unrelated to the game: i really liked your instructions, very clever. this is a great minimalist game and i think the combination of a semi-auto & automatic weapon in combination with a scoring system that penalizes missing the birds is a great touch.

Developer

Hey! Finally someone noticed my instructions, I'm so happy!Thank you for playing it!

I loved the simplicity. One problem for me is requiring  to use the arrow buttons instead of the WASD.

Developer

I will defintly add that once the jam is over, I underestimated people hatred of the arrows. thanks!

Interesting idea, I like it! It fits the theme well, but I do have one problem. For 99% of people, using the mouse with arrow keys is really awkward, most people use the mouse and WASD. 

Developer

I'm new as a game dev I didn't know that arrow keys were that uncommon. Thanks I will definetly add WASD support in all my games now haha!

Awesome! Arrow keys are very common, just not with the mouse. If you make a mouse game I would just always have WASD. Nice job!

Want to +1 that arrows + mouse was the issue for me too though I still had a lot of fun. For a game with few controls like this I would just do both WASD and arrows and then people can use whichever they prefer. There are people with left-handed mice that would appreciate it!
