Strawbirdie is a simple arcade-style game made using App Game Kit 2. You play as hungry bird who needs to fly around eating strawberries while avoiding other hazards in the sky. Over time you will shrink and find it easier to avoid hazards, but if you shrink too much you will starve and get game over. On the other hand, eating strawberries and popsicles will give you points and make you grow, but the larger hitbox will make it harder to avoid hazards. Controls are heavily inspired by the rocketbarrel levels from Donkey Kong Country Returns/ Tropical Freeze.

If you're into that sort of thing, the source code for this game is available at https://github.com/Brougham-Yan/Strawbirdie

Please note that this game requires you to have DirectX installed, which is installed alongside many commercial games. If you are getting an error saying that "XINPUT1_3.dll" is missing, then you can manually download and install the necessary files from http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/confirmation.aspx?id=8109
