Really enjoyed making this.

Try and beat the top high score too! (No editting the highscore table either...)

Quite fun! Difficulty increase through game progression is well done.

Yes, quite fun indeed. Controls are smooth and easy to get to grips with.

The perspective thing kind of confused me, with the bird getting smaller as you go higher up.

I liked the look of the ocean though, and the bird sprite is nice too :>

i thought it was strange that the water effect on the bird seemed to suggest the bird was coming from the horizon, while shrinking as it came lower(if you know what i mean by that), apart from that this reminds me of the rocket level things in DKCR :D now to go for an actually high score :P
i also like how you take going off the screen into account the way you did, 1 small bug though: if you get a score of , i think 100-200, it says "sorry, no scores were beaten" while it's definitely above the kittens' score of 100 :(

Ah! Good find. I'll see if I can go fix that. Probably just a typo with the numbers.

The perspective thing doesn't make sense; you're right, but I kept it in simply because I was showing off and I liked it. But it's cool to see how people can notice such small things. I honestly thought no one would really notice. I'll keep it in mind for other games!

Thanks for the feed back guys!

I loved the perspective change, cool touch. Glad you mixed up the projectiles a bit, otherwise it could have been too dry. Some power ups or flying birds in the sky could add a bit of fun too, but then you wouldn't be so alone would you. :D

Very nice little game.

..Was that dude in a boat throwing eggs at me? Because, as a bird, I'd find that quite ironic.

It's very fun. Reminds me of a Mega Drive intro sequence, but playable. Well done!

Sadly this did not run. No worries, I didn't leave a rating.

Any reason why it didn't run? If it was a missing .dll, you'll need to find Microsoft Redist C++ 2010.

Nice job on the sega-style-ish graphics! Would have liked to see some sounds/music, even if it was bad music ;P

Although the graphics aren't amazingly well drawn, this game is so full of lovely graphical touches (such as the parallax effects, and splashes as you skim the water) that I can't help but rate the graphics highly.

The game is let down a bit by the collision detection.
