First submission, also first project completed with actionscript 3. Hopefully no errors. Original music.

Thanks for the reviews and voting!
I just updated the game to include an easier mode with a little wider chimneys. Highscores are separated by game mode.

LOL. This is awesome. Original too.


A nice and original game. However, I found it to be too difficult.

Oldskool arcade appeal with newskool addictiveness

I must've given it three or four runs before I managed to land in a chimney more than twice in a row--That's the kind of challenge that I find incredibly enjoyable, having been schooled in the 8-bit NES/late Atari 2600 VCS era. Think of that age when repetition was necessary to develop SKILL and a level could almost never be completed in any decent game without dozens of practice runs. I caught a light remniscence of an Atari classic called Circus Atari (often duped as "Clowns" or under some other title), but once I started actually braving the rotation controls and shooting for bonus scoring inflation, I found that kind of excitement and addiction I reap from much newer games (Best example I can think of off-hand is Total Overdose or Chili Con Carnage with their constantly running score counters and multipliers for more complex efforts). I wish I'd had more time and access to something with more accuracy-conducive control options than a laptop PC, but I can't deny that this is a pretty impressive first effort, even at the practical glance I've had the chance to give it. Original music is enjoyable and adds to the experience. Sound effects have that meaty, satisfactory sensation we all USED TO get from some of the best arcade games (I'm thinking shoot-em-ups, mostly). Wind effects and the rest of the physics model are fairly impressive as well. Looking forward to seeing more games submitted from this author, and I'm in the fortunate position of KNOWING that some others exist or are works-in-progress-- *nudge* Get some other stuff out here, soon!

Not bad

It was fun. The graphics looked good. I liked the sound. The gameplay was not bad. It could use improvements in some areas, but, overall, you did a good job.

Fun, it's addictive, but bigger chimneys plz!

I like it very much, but really make the chimneys bigger, that or, more difficultly, make the screen hella bigger. I love this game!
