As TP3 said, the risk/reward aspect is good as it adds a little bit of depth to a basic game. Have you thought about letting the squirrel jump so that he can reach a nut that would otherwise cause him to hit a snowflake if he waited for it? Also, after retrying, I still had 2 nuts on me from the previous game and it let me add them to my score. Anyway, great work, keep it up!
I hadn't thought about making the squirrel jump, no. I imposed a limitation of the Game & Watch on myself to prevent myself being a victim of scope creep (which was very likely to happen) so the only buttons I allowed myself was left and right. That limitation also fed directly into one of my goals in which I wanted to submit a more complete game this time around. That said, adding a jump could be interesting! I'll put that on my list of things to try later. :)
I fixed that bug you mentioned too (new build to go up once I test another refactor a bit first). That squirrel didn't want to let go of those nuts!
Thanks for playing and leaving feedback.
