For this game I'm using W, E, <RETURN>. This allows fairly easy familiarity with the keyboard, similar to Z, X, <RETURN> but of course the game maker didn't think to use the most common usage of keys going so we have W, E instead.

A score to start us off with this one. I'm terribly good at this one but I started liking it back in Season 2. There are tips and tricks there for those that want to go back and look. It's on the 3rd page of HSC.

Well, I'm really busy again but this round will still be going during the Manchester ABug so expect my score around then.

Of course and it will still be way better than my score. I checked out Season 2..... I had 49,000, you had something like 149,000. I have no idea how I got even to 49,000 when I consider how well I'm doing right now.

I'd really recommend reading the thread from the first time we played this. Ivor gave some excellent advice on how to play the game well.

Yeh, it's a slow go, even with the tips and tricks. I believe this is an acquired taste and the 'feel' will come in time.

I never played this before, I liked Winged Warlords BITD. I might have to play that again to see they compare... Really good game, this. Hope to improve a bit... 15,400

If you flap fast enough you can escape from the firey hand.

I had a spare half hour tonight so decided to have a quick go and my first score is:

59050

I seem to remember being considerably better on the beeb last time round so I'm looking forward to having a good go at this next weekend.

If the aim of the game was to hit the other birds in the bottom then I would be the ultimate champion...

As it is I can't seem to progress past level 4 :oops:

Level 4 is where they introduce the 'blue' men on the birds. They are a bit quicker so you have to plan how you're going to get them on the fly so to speak.....
