Fly birds and shoot hoops.
Birdsketball is a local multiplayer sports game for 1 – 4 players.
At the heart of the game are simple controls that require finesse and practice to master. The birds fly and bounce around like tiny dog-fighting planes.
Easy to pick up, hard to master
The controls are simple. But to fly around effectively takes skill and practice to master. Here are some tips for improving your game:
Take your finger off the flap button sometimes: You will rotate faster when idle, and it’s often it’s faster to drop down with gravity than to fly a full circle.
Tackle your opponents by boosting into them.
Boost into a wall and you will rebound in the opposite direction. It’s faster than turning around and makes you look cool.
Long distance shots on goal are impressive, but sometimes just flying the ball directly in is all you need to do. Just make sure you’re back in time for the next ball spawn.
Some players prefer to use the right trigger for flapping (not me!). If you hold it just right, you can almost hover on the spot.
You can make your own levels:
There are currently 9 courts. These are simple .png files, and you can draw your own in MsPaint or Photoshop. The game will find them and load them as long as you keep the colours and dimensions are the same.
If there is demand, I’ll build an in-game collaborative level editor. This could also open up opportunities for more complex level designs.
Local multiplayer only
I won’t rule out online multiplayer, but it’s low on my list of priorities. A really solid local multiplayer experience is the focus for now.
