Birdy'sRainyDaySkipathon

The game started out as a prototype for a Flash Lite game (think of Flash Lite as being to the mobile platform what "regular" Flash is to desktops). Back then, what eventually became our feathery adventurer was just a black piece of fluff - try imagining Birdy without his wings, legs, beak, and eyes to get an idea of where I was headed. Instead of Birdy flying from one stage to the next, a long transparent pipe would shoot down from above and suck Dude (that was his name) right off the screen.
I wanted to experiment a bit with day/night cycles, and while I think the end result is quite pleasing visually, the implementation doesn't really factor into the gameplay in any way. I'll most likely revisit the feature for a later game and do something more substantial with it.

Gets boring, but the art and animation is great.

The thing that really drew me in and kept me playing was the art. Beautiful HUD, smooth animations, and clean transitions from level to level. The idea itself has been done before but like I said, the art style and animations kept me playing for a good 10 minutes.

I'll admit I got pretty bored at around Stage 15 before I came here to write my review, but my time wasn't wasted. I like how I was able to jump right into the game. I didn't need to sit through tons of tutorials and there was no need to memorize a lot of controls either.

The biggest thing that bothers me is the music. It just doesn't seem to fit the game. Maybe something a bit more soothing or mystical. I don't know. Anyways, keep kicking ass. Hope to see another "Birdy'sRainYDaySkipathon" and see how you improve.

Great game

Great concept, cute, and it makes you think. This is going in my favs and get's a 5 and ten. :)

Very Nice

Great game, it did take some thinking to beat some of the levels later on and kept it challenging. These games always remind me of the pokemon games when they would put puzzles like this into the game.

Overall it was a great game and i really enjoyed playing it
Keep up the great work!

Nicely done

One of the rather less games I actually played through more than once. Definitely addicting to me (don't know about others ;P). Graphics are nice and difficulty is alright too (World rank 3 of all time is meh!!). More variety, ideas and elements would be nice though.

Awesome

That was a really awesome game dude... but the game gettin really hard when you reach the higher levels :D
