Great work! I wish the controls were a bit snappier considering some of the maneuvers, but i really liked the art and the gameplay was quite classic.

Awesome game! Good luck! :)

Pretty good game. Reminds me a bit of Potty Pigeon on the C64. =p

I like your take on the theme. :P The graphics were well done, as well. I personally found it a little difficult to control the pigeon, and hitting a wall put you in on an awkward trajectory. Aside from that, good work!

Super nice graphics. A little too hard to control. Congrats.

Nice graphics, i wanted the pigeon to be a bit more nervous in the controls though :]

Shitting on the cows was great fun but the hitting on the wall kinda put me in a bad spot often. Sound was cool too!

Great game - it's the most fun I've had crapping on things in my entire life! Good overall polish with a great front end. A very well rounded game. Congrats!

Very cool game :) Love the art! It remember a french song about that topic (being a bird to shit on people ^^)

Sorry, commented not from my own profile (it's our shared profile for voting) and make stupid mistake ("take shit" == "shit on" ) :/, nulld.

If I was a pigeon--I would wear a cowl too. A way to reduce your speed would be great for avoiding objects. Maybe an aerial flip to slow down?

The bouncing after the pigeon hits something is awkward and can make it really hard to recover. The shitting felt added on and not really part of the game. Though, I think it was well done and a great entry.

considering the splash screen, menu and instructions, it's one of the most polished games in this LD.

Dec 18, 2012 @ 6:34pm

Good job, a really well polished entry, and I like your sense of humor, guys!
P.S. Ha, the title of the game looks a bit similar to ours :)

I like saying "Bad Bad Pigeon" lol and the game is really cool :D

Dec 18, 2012 @ 7:51pm

Art style was really nice, however the pigeon really could do with snappier controls. Also bouncing off things kills you too much.

Its funny and has a simple yet rewarding mechanic, nicely done :)

Dec 18, 2012 @ 11:10pm

Really nice art style, but rather simplistic and the continuous movement gets annoying. Amazing art, however!

Very crisp graphics!

Everything is really great! But because of controls and pigeon movements, it was really hard to play. I didn't manage to complete 1st level 10 times in a row :/

Nice game. I wish there were some sound effects to go with the great music though

RosyPenguin says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 3:38am

Great, polished art and UI! I only wish the controls were more precise; I found it really hard to navigate the sharper turns.

Dec 19, 2012 @ 3:59am

Very nice and polished game, graphics look very good too.

GreenPixelDev says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 5:14am

This would be great on a touch device as it kind of reminds me of Jetpack Joyride! Very nice job and I like the art style! :D

Very nice and polished. Also, quite fun!

Hah, my desire to poop on things has overcome my desire to stay alive

Annoying birds, I'll really think killing this one if I met it.

Dec 19, 2012 @ 7:50am

Argh, hard to get back on track after you bounce off a wall...

Cake&Code says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 8:57am

Cute game! The graphics really add to that effect. I like the idea of pooping on the cows and different little monuments, but I did think the movement was a bit awkward. The bounce-back was a bit hard to recover from, so I lost about 3 or so hearts on one error that I tried to recover from. Overall, it was fun! I really enjoyed playing it. :D

Kinda fun, kinda same as other games. Nice graphics and a pleasant distraction, though nothing new here. Solid game play and polish though.

i never think about that when i saw the theme.. Bonus innovation :D

dray says ...
Dec 19, 2012 @ 3:53pm

Very well polished game, i liked the art, the colisions or some movement don't react as excepted but the game is very solid

Dec 19, 2012 @ 8:20pm

What a scumbag pidgeon!

Very great production but progression stay little behind. thanks :)

Very nice little game.

Dec 20, 2012 @ 1:16am

Great game difficulty was a bit hard due to bouces but good

Dec 20, 2012 @ 1:35am

Good work on the game. The idea is definitely fun, but the restart death penalty can be painful (especially since the player can get caught in a death loop where they cannot fly high enough to go around an obstacle after getting knocked down). The polish in the art and UI is great.

cwilloughby says ...
Dec 20, 2012 @ 8:36am

Fun. Liked the music. Could use more audio. Running into things was janky. Kept getting caught in stun lock basically running into the same thing over and over. I too was reminded of Potty Pigeon on C64!

Funny, cool mechanics and cute game. A mixture of Jump'n Run and Paperboy :)

Dec 20, 2012 @ 7:10pm

Good fun! Pretty tough to make it through and a few instances where I got myself in a bit of fix due to bouncing back and not being able to make it through but a good game in all aspects and well placed with the theme.

one of the best games from jam, very adorable graphics

Infin8 says ...
Dec 21, 2012 @ 9:34am

Nice game!

I feel some spots in the level are permanent death traps though, because the bird seems to float down after it hits a low wall, then u keep on hitting that wall once you recover.Maybe im not controlling the bird correctly.

Never played some shitting-pigeon game before. And now its already the second one. Very cool game though - and not too easy.

Other than the controls, a great game. Well done

I thought the pooping aspect was hilarious, but it sometimes distracted me from where I was going...

Dec 23, 2012 @ 8:49am

Well polished and amusing take on the theme, as well as pretty fun. Unfortunately I found the pigeon didn't go up or down fast enough which lead me to get stuck after hitting obstacles a lot.

pereubu says ...
Dec 23, 2012 @ 12:11pm

Great idea and original use of the theme, controls are a bit hard but it makes the game hard enough to make me want to continue, nice job :3

Mesene says ...
Dec 23, 2012 @ 10:44pm

funny, work on it! can be a nice app!

Dec 27, 2012 @ 6:45pm

Lovely game!

Saw kindalate that this is quite complicated, what with different kinds of bars and pickups. Perhaps that is oversimulating things.

Still, nice work!

Nicely polished result.

Well polished game, love the graphics and music! A pigeon that poops stinky brown and a lovely smile...can't possibly be healthy.

Nice innovation and unique theme interpretation. The graphics are pleasing but the lack of sound effects is disappointing. Could've used some hilarious splat sounds or mooooos or something. Collision with the blocks seemed a bit suspect at times, but a slight bit of tuning can fix that. Good work!

Interesting game. The controls were a little hard to get used to. Graphics are nice. Cool idea.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
