This is my entry for Ludum Dare 27.

Theme: 10 Seconds

Inspired by the planes in the sky, it's time to bring aerodynamic flight to the basics with a paper plane. The aim is to make it fly for 10 seconds, but it's not as easy as it sounds, with the wind being your main enemy, not to mention what lurks around in the park.

One thing that some people don't get is the wind guage. The red bar indicates the strength of the wind in that direction, so if it's up or down, it's the vertical wind speed, if it's left or right, it's the horizontal wind speed. I hope that clears up a few things.

TNX FOR THE FREE 100 POINTS! I EVEN BEAT THE GAME! TOOK ME LIKE UHH 7 TRIES? I THINK...

Neat little game. 10 seconds is very possible, as I did it about 6 times in my quest for medals. The Dedication medal does indeed take some "dedication", and aside from the If At First You Don't Succeed and Medal C, the medals are all random. I quite enjoyed the randomness of this game, and the fact that you can't truly control your plane add a little something unique that most games like this don't have. Nice work!

Wonder how much dedication is really required to get that dedication medal... though, I persevered enough to make my flight time! It seems to be a mission relying as much on circumstance as luck as angle, but the wind does require a little strategy too. It's a fun and simple game, though, wish the secret medals A and B had more of a hint in their titles! No way to even guess what you should be trying to attain them. Or maybe it's all random? Good game overall.

Secret Medal B and Dedication...I just got no Idea what I need to do for them...
jump around like a kobold?
Anyway you did a good job but even for people who know how air works on planes it's just random dude.
I mean just a website for you for the research https://howthingsfly.si.edu/aerodynamics
I have actually no idea how the hell that works in your game.

So, even because of the physics were a bit f...'d up and I still have no clue how to get the rest of the medals (Even Google couldn't told me) I'll give you a mid-rating. A bit bad a bit good, you can improve mate and that game is a bit old so yeah.

2.5/5 Stars
You can do better, keep 'em goin'! :)

pretty challenging game... I like it! This is one of those games I stick around with and I just have to beat it!!
