    Why should we sit through an ad to get to a dubious download?

    Well I played the game, I like that you upt in the effort to do that simple story sequence in the start, little touches like that go a long way to making a product feel complete.

    The game is a bit too difficult and I'm pretty sure the first level can sometimes become impossible to beat. There were tonnes of those birds everywhere and they all managed to corner themselves in one part of the screen trapping you there and unable to get out..

    I do appreciate the feed back and i will make adjustments based on that the blue bird problem is a known issue im working on.
    the story at the beginning i intend to fully animate later but i made a huge mistake by making all the sprites far too small but re-doing all of that now is gonna be near impossible.
    thanks again

    ah no I don't work in audio at all, Jessie Hopkins made a comment on my profile about offering his services to me which is where you probably think I do audio work comes from :)

    Anywho if I were you I wouldn't owrry about making this game better, I'd get started on another one ;)
