Am I the only here reminded of that stage in Mega Man 9?
But i turned my keyboard upside down to make it easier!
I love you.
I'm not going to say...
... that this was a bad game. Yeah, the controls are difficult, but it makes the game a true challenge. I find if you spend less time trying to shoot every bird and focus more on dodging the ones that aren't attacking you it's actually quite easy.
My only suggestion would be to give the player some means of seeing what's coming from offscreen. Most of my losses were when I was against the edge of the screen and a bird would appear off screen and hit me. That's about my only gripe.
Anywyay, good game.
Average at best.
It presents a good challenge, sure, but it's quite difficult to control. I may be a bit jaded, seeing how I haven't played many games with this control scheme, but it's a big aggrivating to keep a grip on the action when you're surrounded on all sides and you can't fire without being pushed into an enemy.
The hitbokes for all the sprites are too large though. Many times I know I dodged something only to be hit because the edge of the square hit a birds giant square.
