Great game. It was fun to play and the graphics were good and the controlls were smooth.
Maybe you could have added more things to jump on or another background.

@DrSkort Thanks for the feedback! I had actually planned for both of those, but I just didn't have enough time to add them in. Maybe in a post-jam version :)

P.S. Have you tried getting a really low score?

This game is rather fun, given it's simplistic style. You hit the nail on the head with the theme too and sounds fit the style of gameplay and feels so satisfying to land on the next bird.
What I would suggest is an initial hit at the top, since I feel I struggle hitting any of the first birds at the start of the game. (Unless you are lucky ofcourse)
Great work!

I've never used TIC-80, so first thanks for the discovery, and then it means I don't know the constraints of developping a game on it.
I'm not gonna lie, your game is quite simple, but it doesn't mean it's a pile garbage. The movement are smooth and the combo is quite satisfying. I know it's 8-bits but I think your graphisms and your sound can be improved (more detailled on the ground and a little music).

Very simple game concept and idea, but oooh so satisfying. With tight and easy controls. Nice.
Great and simple reward sound aswell, but after hitting every bird on the way down it sounded like a supermarket checkout, haha.

Hey! Fun game! Might be a bit easy tho? and the sound was a bit annoying in the long run, as a sounddesigner i think the scale up is a bit boring, maybe do it in some other form of musical manner? Like Traids. But really funny, and i had fun matching my friends highscore tho ;)

Thankyou everyone for all the feedback!

@Nanukk Luik That's actually a really good Idea, I'll add that if I make a post-jam version.

@KuBic_ yeah, graphics and sound really aren't my strongsuit, I'm mainly just a programmer.

@TheKillerFly Haha, yes if I made it go any higher it would get really annoying.

@jlindskov oh cool, I didn't know about those. I'll try it.

Everyone said it was easy and etc, I found it hard to play! I figured it would be easier to memorize the level than to try to see where the next bird would be.

Great game, but can you make a Windows downloadable version?

(Wow, somebody got >2400 points, I only got >500).
It's simple and it's a cool and a quick game. Would work good on mobile too I think.
A chiptune BG music would have been great.

You can play my Web game at: https://alakajam.com/4th-alakajam/462/falling-in-love-for-the-last-time/

@duel_05 You can download it, but it's inconvinient. You press "Download cart" near the game, and run it by seperately downloading tic-80.

Cue little game. Simple, but fun. I think it's well designed and well executed!
