Aw those poor Fat Birds Good concept & cool graphics, fun to see the similarities with Angry Birds and very nice that it supports Retina display

Thank you for your kind words. :-)

I would like to inform you that these are the last hours of price promotion. Now you can get the Fat Birds HD for $0.99, but soon price will increase to $1.99.

Default "Birds"

Curiously as an indie developer, did you just say from the getgo that marketing is tough so lets use birds as graphics and "Birds" in the title to try and score key word searches from "Angry Birds?" I see this more and more and wonder if it truly increases sales if everyone else is doing it.

I'm assuming by that you mean... absolutely nothing like Lemmings.

Great concept, but some problems and suggestions:

The birds cross the bridge way too slowly, even using fast-forward. Make FF at least twice as fast.

I suggest giving each bird a different movement/walk animation as they cross the bridge. It'll help to give them a personality, and make the animation interesting to watch, not just uninspired decoration.

Got it during the "free" sale.

Tried some levels. Pretty fun physics puzzler. Retina. Intuitive, simple and precise controls. All you need is here: Draw to put boards between construction points. Thoughtfully designed: Undo last move, delete single elements, start level new (behind the pause function). Restarts quick (if you fail). Fast forward button. Sometimes it's not easy to get three stars (but you'll need only one to proceed with the next level). Anyway good balanced difficulty. Nice level design.

Multilingual (German…). Extensive illustrated help file (you probably won't even need it). Cute artwork (never seen such birds before ), funny sounds. iCloud & Game Center. 12 achievements (flower icon in level select). Minor glitch: Once the birds wouldn't move (by pressing the play button) when I took the game out of the multitasking bar.

[Edit: Because of a programming error level III/10 is the last one. You can't solve III/11. Tested on iPad 3, iOS 6. I hope for an update.]

@ MarcJay @ RodmanSan:
It seemed to us that the game will be fun when we put there the birds so heavy that they can't fly or jump like these in Angry. Definitely is not worth to making games that literally refers to the AB, there are just too many.

After 5 months (iPhone version release) I have to say that this birds-theme is NOT helping us and even it makes more difficult to promote our game.

@ Monolith:
If you would like to I can send to you the best solution for 1-4 on priv.

@ Habakuk
I also have a iPad 3 and iOS 6.0 and I'm sure that this level is passable. ;-) Here are screenshots with one-star solution. If you would like to I can send to you three-star solution on priv.
