Release – 2017-29 – Pigeon’s Treat

If you eat a Pigeon’s Treat,
It could be bad, or it could be sweet.

You can Download Pigeon’s Treat here for Windows, play it in your browser, or find it on your Razer Forge TV (via Cortex) or other Droid-TV device of choice, once it’s gotten through review!

The Brief

Much like Flappadiddle, your task is simply to jump from platform to platform, making your way across the landscape.
This time, however, not entirely unlike Hoppy Bobby, the platforms are all circling around, and generally being a nuisance.

You’ll need precise controls to keep from falling, and your poor little pigeon doesn’t have an awful lot of stamina.
Good luck, out there!!

Controls

– Move
– Jump – Hold to flap

How not to Lose

Don’t fall!
Oh, and be sure you don’t get hit by any letters.
Also, as always, there are Spikes!

What I didn’t do/Possible Improvements

I’ve had the game sitting here, finished, for most of the day.
I struggled to pluck up the courage to sing a theme tune.
..
…I didn’t sing a theme tune!!!

I don’t sing.

    Initial Thoughts: Looking at the screenshots during the development I felt the game is going to be a fun flying game like “Flapaddidle” but the use of a bird and the background are the only similarities between the 2 games. The gameplay is totally different game. In this game the bird can only fly or dive once per key press no flapping around.

    Gameplay: Landing on rotating platforms from the start position is easy but once you die getting down from the top initial position to a platform is difficult if the platforms are spinning faster. Lost many lives trying to land on the platform from the top position. Following two points could have made the game a little easier 1. The initial starting position could have been reused after each life. 2. Able to do flapping 2 or 3 times could have helped to adjust the bird mid flight to land correctly. All the difficulty is reduced if played in windowed mode, but I like to play in fullscreen mode.

    Graphics: Pigeon animation is beautiful. The stars visible in the holes of the bricks is very good. Pigeon and its animation is not flipped horizontally when left key is pressed.

    Scoring: Landing on a different rotating platform gives 10 points while getting the treat gives 25 points.

    Level generation: Found so many treats in between spikes, I thought if I land on the edge and move between the spikes it will not kill but that was the not the case. Treats in mail boxes is more manageable though but even many mail boxed had spikes.

    Music: The background score is excellent. The pigeon flying sound effect is very well done.

    Overall an enjoyable and excellent game when played in the easy mode.
