Bluebird (Newest Game from NimbleBit)

Decided to make a thread since I couldn't find one .

Was submitted on May 21st, so it should be out fairly soon (by Friday?).

Hmmm... looks interesting, but I think it should have more gameplay elements. And are the black marbles supposed to be bird food or something? lol

I didn't mean that as a jab at you Mew.

Just letting the people who don't follow Ian's twitter know it should be out soon

I can't speak for Ian, but NimbleBit currently has two games in the top ten list of kids apps. If I were him, I'd be writing games like this too.

That's fine . You didn't really "jab at me", I sort of misinterpreted. Let me add that to the OP.

This looks like it lacks depth. I hope this is like scoops and a skyburger equivalent is in the works, because I have enough of these small simple apps. On the bright side, they are actually using new code instead of making minor edits to the same controls and gameplay (see: scoops, kyper, skyburger. Also, textropolis, and textaurant) I am not trying to hate on Ian/nimblebit, since skyburger has been on my favorites page until today to make room for Zenonia, but they could use some more variety.
