I had the pleasure of having a special co-jammer this weekend. Yono (the creator of Gus of the Go) and I developed this small prototype using Love2d.

We really wanted more Raptors but alas we ran out of time. Perhaps there will be a raptorful release version at some stage.

The design discussions were incredibly quick this time, we were coding within a hour of starting. This was the first time Yono had used Lua and he was a quick study!

Asian takeout, Beer, Coffee and my typical Pancake breakfast were our choices for sustainable.

There are very few bugs bu we did have some problems:
No Victory or Failure condition
Spacecoins do nothing (but make the raptors happy)
Not enough Raptor
Explosion particle effects don't work on Android
Difficulty is fixed at VERY EASY

Windows .exe version works with no problem. Thanks for VERY EASY difficulty, but Victory/Failure conditions would be nice. Cool game. Thanks
