How to Play

The rules haven’t really changed at all. You’re a bird that cannot fly, and if you don’t ride the ascending air currents well enough, you’ll fall down.
Use the left and right cursor keys to move left and right, respectively, and ride the “:” to ascend. Picking up the semi-“¥”‘s gives you a random amount of points from 10 to 500. As soon as you hit the bottom, it’s game over.
