fucking gex

The Ostriches look funny.

This game is so funny. I loved the victory dance!

The way the ostriches follow you is so weird. My fellow birds need to learn how to be more organized or they're gonna get themselves in some real trouble someday.

I never really used the hide button; the cameras weren't that big of a deal. The lasers in conjunction with the stun robots made the challenge. The last level was especially difficult.

I'd love to play more levels!

Now that the game works for me (finally), I must say that it's rather impressive.
Reminds me of munch oddyssey. Too many levels perhaps, but still, impressive
The ostrich movement can be tad frustrating, oh well, and some of the levels are overkill, especially final level. My only grip is that I wish level 15 had less lasers, it's almost impossible to control 7+ ostriches with this many lasers at the same time everywhere.

EDIT: now, a very bad bad bug that other people should know. on my first try, I didn't save all ostriches in level 2 & 3. When I replayed the levels and got all of them, it didn't change the status in the level select. I haven't saved all of the ostriches yet, so I don't know if it affects the secret medal, but I'm not feeling like trying it, because level 15 is really hardcore, so I'd rather have certainty that the effort doesn't go for naught

It is fixed. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for updating the review
