Note: WebGL messed with this game A LOT. If you can, download the game at: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BzZTrL17Xklgb2VfRjRUd29rb00/view

This is a horizontal shooter with a twist: you can only go up by flying into windy areas, but if you fly too high, your wings will melt!

Controls:
A = slow down
D = speed up
S = descend faster
Left mouse button = hold to charge the bow, release to shoot

Modes:
Campaign - fight your way tough a predetermined wave of enemies and make it to the end. You can also turn on "Nightmare mode", which removes health drops, reduces invincibility duration and increases sun damage.
Challenges - A few scenarios for which you have to come up with a solution.
Survival - Kill as many enemies as you can and set a new high score.

Pretty interesting twist on a classic shooter. I would like to see the descend button work faster. I felt like a lack of control at points. Maybe ascend less when you hit a gust if 'S' is held down?
