Arcade Game Controls

March 28, 2011

Arcade Game Bird Brawl is back with a vengeance, baby! Having found a couple spare weeks to finally get back to working on the most intense and fun video game of my life, I took it upon myself to simplify Bird Brawl's control scheme and debug many of the issues plaguing its flash multiplayer stratus (cirrus) engine.

Flash peer-to-peer networking is a total headache, but I felt the need to distinguish our lil game from Angry Birds by making it multiplayer. The good news is that virtually all of the bugs have been eliminated, and now all our fabulous users can return to enjoying its simple arcade game style gameplay.

Even better, Bird Brawl no longer requires the use of a mouse, making it even more fun and like an arcade game! You just control everything using the arrow keys (or WASD) and space bar. How simple is that?

Finally, the weapons have been updated, refined, and polished--and you no longer need to hold down the fire key to charge them up. Instead, they charge automatically, and pressing the fire key releases the charged up ammo at your target.

Thanks to all our dedicated fans for sticking with us during this transition period. More updates, content and general game improvements coming soon!
